I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Obituary for Pastor John C. Jeske
Pastor John Carl Edward Jeske

In February of 1924 God gave a son to John Gustave and Elizabeth Jeske of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The father taught his family the faith and love that are Christianity. The son never wanted to be anything but a Lutheran pastor like his father.

John C. Jeske would spend all but one year of his long ministry in a small Wisconsin triangle, between Milwaukee, Mequon and Watertown. God gave him a love for people, and it was people he served with his mind and his heart and his will and his hands.

In 1948 John served as a Tutor at Dr. Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN. In 1949 he was assigned from seminary to St. Marcus Evangelical Lutheran Church in Milwaukee. In 1952 Jeske was called to serve St. John’s, on 68th & Forest Home Avenue, at that time called Root Creek. Christmas of 1969 saw his family move to Mequon where he joined the faculty of Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary.

During his Seminary years, Professor Jeske served three congregations that were without a pastor: Brown Deer, Grafton, and northwest Milwaukee. Jeske also served as a traveling professor in Siberia and in Japan.
