September 10, 1937 — October 27, 2021

James “Jim” Leo Jennison passed away October 27, 2021 at Cedar Creek Manor in Kronenwetter

He was born September 10, 1937 to Lester and Ester (Amundson) Jennison in Princeton, Minnesota. He graduated from Anoka High school. Early in life Jim also honorably served his country from 1955 - 1959 in the United States Air Force while stationed in Hawaii.

Jim worked over 24 years at Wausau Insurance in the IT department, and after his retirement worked at Sherwin Williams for 12 years.

Jim enjoyed hunting and fishing with friends and family and his Friday night date nights with Barb. He loved grilling out and always kept his yard meticulous, especially keeping the travel agencies' big red mailbox painted every summer for the community to know where the agency was. Jim helped begin the Wausau Flying Club, enjoyed softball and curling; as well as joining Barb on trips all over the world. He was a loving and supportive father and grandpa, and will be missed.

He is survived by his wife, Barb; children, Jami (Joe Mershon) Traska, Jill (Tim) Bolduc, Scott Perkins, Sarah (Ken) Maciaz, Shelley (Ryan) Wucherer; grandchildren, Liz (Luke) Hilleshiem, Halle (Matt) Axling, Courtney Bolduc, Peri Maciaz, Brooke Jennison, Madi Wucherer, Ben Wucherer, Duke Wucherer; sister, Donna Landeen with numerous friends and other relatives.

Jim was preceded in death by his parents; son, Jay Jennison, and granddaughter, Ellianah Bolduc.

The family would especially like to thank Chris H. for the many years of care given to Jim at home and special thanks to Linda and the team at Cedar Creek Manor for the love and support given to Jim during these final days.
