Jim was the youngest of four children, born on March 28th, 1956 to Ernest and Alma (Schultze) Schuessler in Scottsbluff, NE. At three years old he moved to York, NE, where he called home for the remainder of his life. He attended York High School and met lifelong friends he enjoyed getting together and tinkering around with tools, cars, or whatever they could find. He went on to work as a machinist for a number of years, at a job he was proud of.
Jim had two children, Stacey Lauber and Zachary Schuessler. Later in life he was blessed with grandchildren who he adored watching them play and would marvel at their energy.
He enjoyed playing basketball, frisbee, and being outside. He loved watching NASCAR and football. His faith was also important to him.
Jim is survived by his son Zachary (Stephanie Jackson) Schuessler of York, daughter Stacey (Bradley) Lauber of Geneva, NE, grandchildren Carli, Caylee, and Jackson Schuessler, Kendra, Chase, and Lauren Lauber, his brother Mike (Kathy) Schuessler of Milwaukee, WI and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Thomas, sister Shirley, and granddaughter Karoline Lauber.
A private memorial service will be held at a later time to celebrate Jim’s life. Memorials may be directed to the family for further designation.
