On August 18th, 2022, Jeff Allen Peterson, a loving father, brother, and friend, passed away at age fifty-five. Jeff grew up in Merrill, WI. He worked his way through college with a summer job at Wausau Papers, and graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire in 1991 with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. That same year, he married Julie Stadler and moved to Dallas, Georgia, where his daughter Jessica was born in 2000.
