James C. L. “Jimbo” Jarnecke, Jr., 36, of Kouts passed away Friday, August 18, 2017 as the result of an accident. He was born January 14, 1981 in Scottsdale, AZ to James L. & Mary A. (Schaub) Jarnecke, Sr.  He attended school in Morgan Township and graduated from Portage High School. Jimbo parlayed his mechanical talents into a career of small motor and bicycle repair & sales from his home. Friends will remember his passion for music; dancing, playing the guitar and immersing himself in grunge music.  His charismatic energy won friends at every event. Down time allowed him to practice his cooking skills, auto mechanics and cat obedience training with “Addie”. Jimbo’s untimely passing will leave a hollow place in all of us who enjoyed how comfortable his free spirit could make you feel in his presence.  On October 11, 2013 he married Melissa Mirin who survives along with his father, James L. Jarnecke, Sr. and sister, Brenna Smith of Goshen. He was preceded in death by his mother, Mary in 2015.
A visitation will be held Tuesday from 3 – 7 pm at Kosanke Funeral Home, Kouts. The funeral service will be held Wednesday, 11:00 am at Kouts Christian Church, Pastor George Taylor officiating with cremation to follow.
