March 14, 2019 – Jackson, WI – Jason M. Lisko passed away on Friday, March 8, 2019 at the age of 43.
Jason was born in Hartford on November 12, 1975 to Steven and Christine (nee Schulteis) Lisko. He was raised in Allenton/Hartford and graduated from Hartford High School class of 1994. Jason married Janelle (nee Freitag) Lisko on 8-9-2007. He worked as a Mason Foreman for Marriott Construction.
Jason had very fond childhood memories of playing ball at the Allenton Park and spending summers on his grandparent’s farm. Jason began working in the masonry trade at age 13, spending 30 years perfecting his craft. Grandma Lisko said “I guess God needed him more than we did, he probably needed a really good Mason.”
Jason dedicated himself to Marriott Construction for 22 years.
Jason found pride in knowing he and his crew constructed buildings with strength and beauty. Often when we were traveling around, Jason would say with a smile “look girls, daddy built that building.” He was driven, dependable and deeply respected by his colleagues. Jason showed his love to his family and friends by sharing his time, skills and wisdom. Jason enjoyed fishing, grilling, baking, tinkering in his garage, and snowmobiling, 4-wheeling, camping, gardening and creating memories with his family and friends. Jason ensured that the kids were outside making memories of their own like he did as a kid. Teaching them how to be strong, resourceful and simply appreciate the gifts in life.
Some of our favorite moments are the backyard zip-line, boating, snowmobiling in the field, campfires in our backyard, playing board games and the pool he made in the bed of his truck when we were up north. He showed those he loved honesty, respect, trust and passion. Our minds will hold memories, our hearts will hold love and our faith lets us know we will meet again.
Jason is survived by his wife Janelle, son Kody (special friend Toni Geidel), daughter Kelsey, daughter Kenna, father Steve (Patricia step mother) Lisko, mother Christine Schulteis, sister Tiffany (Andy) Hartz, step-sister Christine (Christopher) Balkevich, step-sister Sarah (Curt Schellinger) Blossom, grandparents Norman and Florence Lisko, father-in Law Mike (Betty McGlothin) Freitag, mother in-law Mary Ann Puls (Rick Bamke), brother in-law Mike (Samantha) Freitag, brother in-law Brandon Bamke (Derek Holz) and grandfather in-law Robert Freitag.
