    I met Mr. Ed Hasenjager only once. It is sad what happened but he is in a better place now. I want to extend my deepest sympathy to the Hasenjager family and to especially Judy Hasenjager, his sister, whom I have known for 50 years.

    Norma, Judy and kids. I have had the pleasure of knowing Ed my whole life since they lived behind us as kids. Ed’s always been a stand up guy and surely will be missed by all. I am so sorry for your loss.

  • Ginni Engel Posted June 22, 2022 6:27 pm

    Eddie was my cousin. Though we only saw each other at family functions, you were always drawn to him. Not sure if it was his personality or those darn dimples along with his smile!

    Eddie is 9 years older than me. I remember as a young, boy- crazy teenager, that I had a “crush” on my cousin! Hence, I always laughed and giggled at the term “kissin cousins”! But, not only was I fond of his dimples… he always took the time to say hi and see how I was. One great guy!

    Needless to say, this was a shock for our entire, spread out family. We were all better people for knowing him.

    I want Norma, and their sons/families, (and Judy) to know that Eddie will always hold a place in MANY peoples hearts.

    My heart aches for you and I hope peace will be with you all.

    Much love.

  • Lorraine Boyd Posted June 22, 2022 9:16 pm

    Thom and I spent many fun get-togethers with Ed and Norma over the years, going back to the Seventies! And since my work led to many trips to the courthouse and city county building, I often ran into Ed. He was a sweet, kind, funny man. I will miss him very much. Prayers to his family.

  • Antoinette Chiesa (Tawni) Posted June 22, 2022 11:34 pm

    I had the pleasure to work with Ed and enjoyed every minute. He was my teacher, mentor and advisor. I will truly miss working on cases with him. He has a true heart and cared deeply for people. It saddens me so that I will never be able to talk to him or hear his voice again. To his family, I am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to Norma and his boys and grandchildren. He spoke of his family always. He had so much love in his heart. A true gentleman and great attorney. RIP Ed. You will always be in my thoughts. Will miss you deeply.

  • don roberts Posted June 23, 2022 8:13 am

    I was saddened to learn Ed passed away. We used to stop and talk in the Courthouse frequently and he always had a smile on his face. We had cases together, and he was always great to work with. I am very sorry for your loss.

  • Barry Grossman Posted June 23, 2022 8:20 am

    My late father and I had known Ed for many years and knew him to be a very laid back, genuinely pleasant gentleman. My condolences to his family and may his memory be for a blessing.

  • Wes Dodge Posted June 23, 2022 8:32 am

    I knew Ed through my practice of law. He had a great sense of humor and any day I interacted with him was better for my being able to talked with him. No phone call or conversation I ever had with him was short and I never wanted it to be. He will be missed.

  • Joe Grant Posted June 23, 2022 8:55 am

    Ed was one of the nicest lawyers I’ve had the pleasure to encounter. He was a real gentleman but also a lot of fun and a great advocate for his clients. We will all miss this great fellow.

  • Daniel P. Chesire Posted June 23, 2022 8:57 am

    I had known Ed for over 40 years. I am a Boys Town grad and Ed was a Ryan grad. In Omaha Ryan high school in the mid 60’s was our toughest competition in football. Ed and I would chat about our coaches and Ed would all ways joke about some of the BT players being over 21.. All I could confirm was my birth year of 1947. Ed was always upbeat and without a doubt a great husband , father, and grandfather. We will all miss him. ☘️Danny boy BT grad 1965

  • Nicole Seckman Jilek Posted June 23, 2022 9:09 am

    I am an attorney and was a member of the legal organization Inns of Court with Ed for the past 15 years. I will miss seeing Ed at our monthly meetings and listening to his war stories. Ed was a great story teller and he had the best stories! Ed’s family will be in my prayers.

  • Jodi Bacon Posted June 23, 2022 9:20 am

    My thoughts and prayers are with all of the Hasenjager family. May your memories provide you comfort as you grieve your loss . Norma, sending you a virtual hug.

  • JON JABENIS Posted June 23, 2022 12:08 pm

    The “Ed smile” told it all. Ed was always happy to see you – and always greeted you with that smile that said he loved life. Such a truly good man – as genuine as they come. You will be missed, Ed – but not forgotten.

  • Phyllis Chandler Posted June 23, 2022 2:40 pm

    Dear Norma and sons,
    I remember Erik and Jeff so well from the Center for Children. You too, Norma. A special family. Well over 40 years now, but some people are never forgotten. God bless you as you grieve the loss of your father and husband. You will all be in my prayers. May he rest in peace.

  • Judy Buono Posted June 23, 2022 8:54 pm

    I had first met Ed back in the late 1980’s when I had Frank Pane as my attorney over in the Keeline Building, and Frank had a medical episode and Ed too k over his cases until Frank returned to good health. Ed was an excellent attorney and a true gentleman. I continued to see him in the Court House throughout the years.

    Toward the last of my working years with the City of Omaha I had worked in the City of Omaha Prosecutor’s Office. I once again would see Ed in the Court House on nearly a daily basis. He was always charismatic, with a genuine smile and laughter and often a story that he shared. My deepest condolences to his wife, children and family, He will be truly missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing him.

    God Bless you during this most difficult time.

  • William Patrick Betterman Posted June 24, 2022 6:00 am

    I attended Creighton Law School with Ed.
    The warmth of Ed’s smile will be what I will always remember of him.
    My sincerest condolences to his wife and family. He will be missed.

  • Richard Gilloon Posted June 24, 2022 2:10 pm

    I met Ed through Toastmasters and ran into him frequently at the courthouse. All the tributes written above are so true. He was a gentleman, a funny man, and every time you saw Ed you left with a happy memory. My condolences and prayers for his family.

  • Larry & Mary P Raynor Posted June 24, 2022 2:21 pm

    I was fortunate to attend school w/Eddie. We were partners in Biology class. He instilled fun and laughter in everything he did. He was kind to everyone and I always walked away from Eddie feeling better about life. Our sincere sympathy to the Hasenjager family.

  • Charlotte Killgore Posted June 25, 2022 10:58 am

    Dear Norma, sons and families,,
    I am Eddie’s cousin, Charlotte. I wanted to take this time and opportunity to convey my condolences to you. Though I haven’t seen Ed in decades, I do know that the kind man that he was – his sweet heart – would not fade with time, but instead would only grow to be kinder! I can see that was true by all of the beautiful comments from both new and old time friends! How wonderful that you get to hear from them!
    I remember meeting you, Norma, and thinking: there are the two nicest people….that you were meant for each other!
    And now I can imagine all of the wonderful memories you have made as a family!
    Four sons and nine grandchildren!!! Amazing!!!

  • Charlotte Killgore Posted June 25, 2022 10:59 am

    Continued from the above….

    Never let those memories go, keep them in front of you!
    There exists a God who won’t let the memory of Eddie go either!
    He promises that “the meek (like Ed) will inherit, or possess, the earth…. and will live forever on it.” Don’t we all want to be among them? May we all one day meet again!
    I’m sending loving thoughts and my prayers to you all!

  • Debra Hovorka Posted June 26, 2022 2:02 pm

    I had the pleasure of meeting g Ed years ago with some legal help. Saddened to hear of his passing. May GOD be with your family and bestow HIS love and strength as you go thru this sadness. Fondly, Debra Hovorka

  • Ralph Pane Posted June 28, 2022 11:10 am

    So sorry for your loss!! Ed was a great guy! I spoke to him a week earlier, he wanted me to work on his Mazda pickup. Sorry I missed the funeral. I just heard about his death today from a mutual friend..

  • Pam Cardenas Posted June 29, 2022 2:37 pm

    I’m so sorry to hear of Ed’s passing. I worked in the City Prosecutor’s office for many years and would chat with Ed whenever he would come into the office. He was always such a pleasure to work with.

  • Sean Rensch Posted July 6, 2022 3:14 pm

    Ed was such a good man and lawyer. Every time I ran into him in the courthouse or at a seminar, he never failed to ask me how my Dad was doing. He was always positive, with a smile. He was always interested in what I had to say. Ed was a genuine person and I will miss him. I am so heartbroken for his family. He left us way too soon. Sean

  • Alex Oppenheim Posted July 20, 2022 11:11 am

    RIP Eddie

  • Tom Luther Posted February 27, 2023 7:20 pm

    Ed was a friend of mine – I shall miss him. I just found out today that he passed away last year. I always enjoyed visiting with him, he had such a great sense of humor. We shared stories and laughed a lot about life.

  • Vince Shay Posted September 2, 2023 7:11 pm

    I only knew Ed via men’s basketball at SMM. I saw him occasionally as we both knocked around Omaha. Restaurants, courthouse, etc. This is to say, I didn’t know Ed well. But what I did know about Ed…I liked…a lot. A fine man. Rest in peace. Sorry this is so late, I just learned via SMM annual report
