In Memory of Jeffrey W. Putbrese



Funeral Services



11/20/1988 -12/07/2016


Jeff was taken from us suddenly and tragically, at the age of 28.

He lived in and around St. Croix County since he was 10.

Jeff had a big heart and a wonderful sense of humor. He had a smile that would melt hearts. He could always make us laugh, he was a goofball! He left a lasting impression on every one he met. 

He is survived by his mother Laura L. Kaeser of Central Point Oregon, his father William E. Groff of Green Bay Wisconsin, Jeff’s brothers Greg Gott of Salem Oregon, Christopher A. Kaeser of Medford Oregon, Cody L. Kaeser of Klamath Falls Oregon. Grandmother Cecilia Wolstencroft of Medford Oregon. His Aunt Shera Johnson of Durango Colorado. His Uncle Neal G. Putbrese of Central Point Oregon, Jeff’s girlfriend Taryn Jiskra, a friend who he held close to his heart Cera Fonseca, Sam Gillis of Hudson Wisconsin and Lisa Marie Kehren of Sutherland Iowa, who’s help was invaluable. Wendy Cunningham who was always there for Jeff and too many friends to list, who are all missing him! There will be a memorial placed at Willow River by his friends.  Memorials or cards can be sent to Lori Scheder of the Salvation Army in New Richmond, for their help in this and in life. God Bless you Jeff, R.I.P.

    • The first time Jeff and I hung out was on my birthday a few years ago. We didn’t know each other but when he heard it was my birthday he still made sure it was a memorable day. We immediately clicked and we have been close ever since. He was so funny, so smart, and it was never a dull moment with him. Jeff was kind and always made me feel like I was the most important person in the world. I am grateful to have known him and to have had the opportunity to be close with him. I have many fond memories that I will cherish always. His absence is definitely felt everyday and he will forever be missed.
