Jason Christian Neely, 34, passed away peacefully while surrounded by his family in his home on January 14, 2023, after a two-year battle with a rare form of cancer

Jason was born to Tom and Marta Neely (née Schomburg) on July 21, 1988. He was baptized in Christ on August 21, 1988 and confirmed in his faith on October 26, 2003 at Concordia Lutheran Church in Kirkwood. He attended Christ Community Lutheran School (class of 2003) and Lutheran High School South (class of 2007). He earned his B.S. in Earth Science and Education from the University of Central Missouri in 2012. After teaching for a couple years, Jason established a career playing with dirt as a lab technician at SCI Engineering.

Jason’s tremendous love for his family and friends was matched only by their love for him. If you knew him, you felt loved by him. He enjoyed laughing and making people laugh. Jason loved music, word games, trivia, game nights, birding, Coen Brothers movies, quoting episodes of Seinfeld, Civil Life American Brown ale, and a schmoky scotch whishkey [sic]. He made everything better.

Jason was the beloved brother of Jamie (Brian) Woods, Tommy (Kori) Neely, and Melissa (Mike) Oexeman. He was adored by his nephews, Tripp (4), Patrick (4), Dominic (2), Fritz (2), and Henry (2), and many others who knew him as uncle Jas(on). He will be deeply missed by cousins, aunts, uncles, and so many friends that loved him dearly.

Time for visitation and remembrance will be held from 3-8pm on Friday, January 27th at Kutis Funeral Home, Affton Chapel. A celebration of life will take place at 11am on Saturday, January 28th at Concordia Lutheran Church in Kirkwood, preceded by a visitation beginning at 9am.
