Jeffrey Clark Bjerksett, age 60, of Carver MN, left this world suddenly on April 8th, 2021.
Jeff was born June 28, 1960 in Minneapolis MN. He was the most fun loving soul. Jeff was very adventurous, and loved the outdoors. Skiing, snowmobiling, fishing, four wheeling, cooking, music, and travel were among his greatest passions. Oh yes, and talking – lots and lots of stories. Jeff made friends everywhere he went – all the more people to talk to! He was a daredevil, and the wild card among his many friends. Jeff got himself into (and out of) remarkable situations. Jeff liked to work hard and play hard, and the combination of the two along with his artistic talent, is reflected in numerous establishments all around.
Jeff will be missed dearly by so many friends & family. He is survived by his loving wife, Shelly Bjerksett; children, Joshua & Hailee Bjerksett; stepchildren, Tanya (Keith) Van Sloun, Rachel (Mitchell) Morem, and Cory Breitenfeldt; step parents, Leonard and Patty Taylor; grandson, Warren Van Sloun; father-in-law, Warren Woods; siblings, Sandy Fitzgerald, LueAnn (Doug) Hinderaker, and Gregory Bjerksett; nieces & nephews, Mike Fitzgerald, Leesha Fitzgerald (James Eccles), Pia (Drew) Freeman, Cody Engstrom, and Hanna Hinderaker; brother-in-laws, Scott (Glynda) Woods and Stephen Woods; and grandniece Kiera Eccles. Preceded in death by parents, Jere Lue (Stubbs) & Norman E. Bjerksett.
