Jerome Huppert 1958-2022


Jerome Francis Huppert, age 63, of Ellsworth, died unexpectedly, of natural causes, Saturday Sept. 17, 2022, at his residence. Jerome was born on Dec. 4, 1958, in Red Wing, MN, the son of Chester and Jeanine (Johnson) Huppert. He graduated from Ellsworth High School in 1977. Earlier in life, he worked for Andersen Windows in Bayport, MN. Looking to follow his heart, he began his own trucking service hauling grain and fertilizer. He so loved driving his Kenworth, but more importantly seeing old client farmers who quickly became longtime friends.

He loved spending time on his farmstead. He rented out his land to local farmers and was always eager to help when they needed a hand. His love of the “Green and Gold” extended from John Deere memorabilia to Packer football. He always looked forward to Huppert Cousin Reunions. He was all smiles last year when his cousin Lynn gave him a helicopter ride for an aerial view of the farmland he so loved. He was a member of the English Lutheran Church in Ellsworth.

Jerome is survived by his dad Chester of Ellsworth; siblings David (Sarah) Huppert of Bay City, Kimberly (Brian) Cooper of Stevens Point, Barbara (Lance Dills) Huppert of Madison; nieces Marie (Chris) Miller

of Montello, Amy (Eric) Suchon of Farmington, MN, Allison Huppert of Bay City; great nieces/nephews Warren Miller, Cooper Suchon, Greta Miller, Fox Suchon; aunts/ uncles Mary (Bill) Boston of Stevens Point, Pete (Jackie) Johnson of Red Wing, MN; as well as many cousins and friends. His mother Jeanine and best friend canine Toby preceded him in death.
