In God’s infinite wisdom, He took Jeffrey Dorn home to heaven on Saturday, February 26, 2022. He was doing what he loved, living life to the fullest. He loved being with his wife, children, and his grandchild, and enjoying the wonderful views of God’s creation. Whether it be in his boat, in the duck blind or deer stand, at the farm, or just watching the birds in his backyard. He saw God’s grace from it all.
Jeff was born on May 7, 1964, in Globe, Arizona. He attended elementary school at St. Paul’s Lutheran School in Muskego, Wisconsin. He graduated in 1982 from Northwestern Prep in Watertown, Wisconsin, and graduated in 1986 from Dr. Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minnesota.
Jeff humbly served 36 years in God’s ministry. He taught at Christ-St. John’s Lutheran School in West Salem, Wisconsin, Bethany Lutheran School in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Morning Star Lutheran School in Jackson, Wisconsin, and Shoreland Lutheran High School in Somers, Wisconsin. During those 36 years, he made a huge impact, guiding students in their education but, most importantly, sharing the message of our Savior. He preached the power of God’s Word and how it gives us comfort every single day and that God always has a plan, even if it is not our own.
Jeff is survived by his wife, Rachel (Schroeder) of 36 years. He is also survived by his children, Erin, Michael, and Tyler (Katelynn); granddaughter, Isabel; parents, Owen and Bonnie Dorn; brothers, Brian, Steve, John (Mary) Dorn; step-siblings Doug (Wendy) Butzine, Jennifer (Darren) Jankowski, and Jon (Michelle) Butzine; father-in-law, John Schroeder; sister-in-law Rebecca (Dean) Yagodinski; and many dear nieces and nephews.
He was greeted at Heaven’s Gates by his Savior, his mother, Ruth Dorn; mother-in-law, Judy Schroeder; brother-in-law, Terry Schroeder; and his step-nephew, Anderson Butzine.
