Jeffrey Arthur Juergens, son of Arthur “Mitch” and Beverly “Joy” Juergens, was born April 9, 1961 in Lake City, IA. He passed away at his home in Estherville, IA on January 25, 2021.

Jeff attended school in Estherville, IA and graduated from Estherville High School in 1979. He spent his entire professional life as an owner/operator truck driver and landlord. He was united in marriage to Lisa Zitterich on October 10, 1982. Together they welcomed Cory and Kristi. Jeff’s marriage to Lisa was later dissolved.

Jeff loved riding his ATV, whether it be out West at the Grand Canyon or in West Union, IA. He also enjoyed watching the drag races and tinkering on all of his vehicles. When he wasn’t riding his ATV or working on his semi, Jeff thoroughly enjoyed going for a drive about or gathering with his family or close friends at an oriental buffet. Jeff was known as a master negotiator and was always looking for the best price on the things he wanted. He marched to the beat of his own drum and wasn’t afraid to bum someone’s last cigarette.

Jeff is survived by his son Cory Juergens (Kristal Baldwin) and their children Calli, Lexi, and Carson of Estherville, IA and daughter Kristi Juergens (Jason Schmidt) and their children Andrew and Amelia of Minneapolis, MN. Jeff is also survived by his sisters Connie Sixt and Marci Krueger.

Jeff is preceded in death by his parents, Mitch and Joy.

Jeff it was an honor knowing you. You make me want to be a better man, Father, friend and so many other things. Someone once told me to judge a man by his kids and by that measure few can match Kristi and Cory. I give you my word Amelia will be raised with the same values. Thank you for every my friend. Till we meet again, have a Marb light and a Diet Dew ready for me! Love you Brother!
