Jeff T. Mollner

Jeff T. Mollner

Sept. 2, 1982 – March 18, 2023

He was preceded in death by his grandparents: Emerich and Lidwina Mollner, Gilbert Schenkelberg, and Michael O’Daniel Sr.

He is survived by Loycee O’Daniel; daughter, Aysa Mollner; parents, Jim and Mary Mollner; sisters: Jenny (Nate) Edie, Kim Basilico, Barb (Ryan) Sullivan, Amy (Dan) McCarthy, Staci Raddish; grandmothers, Barb Schenkelberg and Barb O’Daniel; many other loving relatives and friends.

VISITATION: Friday, March 24th, 4pm, with a VIGIL at 6:30pm at West Center Chapel. MASS OF CHRISTIAN BURIAL: Saturday, March 25th, 10am at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Gretna. Interment Resurrection Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to the Aysa Mollner Educational Fund.

Jeff was raised by his mother until the age of nine and was officially adopted by Jim that same year. Along with his sister Jenny having to put up with Jeff’s energy, he gained 3 more sisters (Kim, Barb, and Amy) with Jim and Mary’s union. This just meant more opportunities to cause trouble and annoy girls.

Jim taught Jeff more life skills and craftsmanship than any formal education could’ve.  Jeff had a huge hand in building their home on the lake. He spent his childhood at Riverside Lakes riding dirt bikes and four-wheelers. There was not a memory made at the lake that did not involve Jeff.

Jeff moved out to Colorado in 2018 with Loycee to create the life they both desired. His time was spent outdoors hunting, hiking, snowboarding, and snowmobiling. While in Colorado, His life/family grew with their dog Clyde and the birth of his daughter Aysa. Aysa’s first dirty diaper change was also a first for Jeff. He gave her her first bath, and their bond grew from there. If you ask Aysa, “who’s the best?” 10 out of 10 times, she will respond, “Daddy!” Becoming a father was his proudest accomplishment.

In 2022, Jeff and Loycee moved their family back to Nebraska to be closer to family and friends. Jeff’s love and passion for the mountains continued and encouraged many more trips back to Colorado and Wyoming. After his daughter, conquering the Widowmaker, a snowmobile mountain in Colorado, may have been his proudest accomplishment.

His skills were best demonstrated with backing a truck and trailer or running an excavator. His other skills developed over time with his dad Jim, which led him to an unlimited number of side jobs and home improvement projects. This became his valid excuse to buy more stuff to store in his shop.

Jeff’s passion has always been the outdoors, bowhunting, and anything with a diesel motor. Jeff’s favorite meal consisted of Dr. Pepper, French fries, and cheeseburgers. Just don’t grill the bun!  Jeff’s biggest pet peeves were Dodge trucks, Hunt’s ketchup, bad drivers, undisciplined children, laziness, poor craftsmanship, being late… really, there are just too many to list…

Jeff had the biggest heart and would do anything for anybody. He would literally give you the shirt off his back, or the hours out of his busy day to help you out. Jeff’s no-nonsense attitude, along with his can’t sit still energy and thirst for life (and his handsome smile), made everyone fall in love with him.

  • Chris and Brenda Greenfield Posted March 22, 2023 4:33 pm

    Although we have known Jeff, Loysee and Aysa for a short time (Nebraska Neighbors) you all have had such a huge impact on our lives and in our hearts. In reading over his obituary, we can attest that its accurate. I am a Dodge Truck fan…yup, I found his first passion…hating dodge trucks. We watched Jeff’s boundless energy and always there to help. In fact, if I had a project he kept after me until I finally brought it over. He didn’t quit until it was running or fixed…wore me out! Most of all, we loved to see his passion for Loysee and Aysa. His little girl barely left his arms. It melts your heart. I have no words for the loss Jeff’s family and friends are feeling except you had one heck of a son, brother, Daddy, friend. He lived his short time on this world with no stone left unturned. All our prayers to you and Loysee & Aysa, we are here for you! God Bless you.

    Loycee, I am so sorry, you and Aysa are in my prayers.

  • Nevada Posted March 24, 2023 3:27 pm

    My condolences. In our early 20s, Jeff and I hung out constantly and got up to more mischief than I’ll ever admit. We probably should have been arrested, maimed, or seriously injured more times than I can count. Then life happened and we drifted apart, as people tend to do. I was shocked when I heard about this tragedy and wish we would have stayed in touch. I am so sorry Mary, Jim, Jenny, and everyone else who was touched by Jeff’s life.

  • Mike & Gail Little-Osberg Posted March 24, 2023 4:11 pm
