Jade Ryan Schoneberg


May. 10, 1977 - Aug. 15, 2019

Jade Ryan Schoneberg was born May 10, 1977, in Denver, CO to John and Suzanne (Zimmerman) Schoneberg. He grew up in the small town of Sutton, NE and attended Sutton Public Schools. A cowboy from the start, he knew from an early age what he wanted to do with his life. Trading horses became his passion when he made a profit on his first pony sold at 6 years old. For the rest of his life, he would love a good horse, a good horse sale, a good trade and the many lasting friendships made along the way. When not at a horse sale, his favorite place to be was at the barn working with his dad. He also worked in the ag industry, the last 5 years for Nutrien Ag Solutions.

The hat he was proudest to wear was that of being the best uncle in the whole world to his 5 nephews, never missing a birthday or holiday that he could spend with them. He was so good with children and his first comment after being diagnosed with cancer was “Better me than a little kid.” After a gallant yearlong battle with cancer, Jade passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Thursday, August 15, 2019, at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX. He was 42. Jade was a genuinely good man with a ready smile and will be greatly missed by more than he could imagine.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Earl and Rita Zimmerman and John and Audree Schoneberg.

Those left to grieve his absence are his parents, John and Suzanne Schoneberg of Sutton, NE; brothers, Cameron, wife Emily and son, Cayden of Elmdale, KS; Dustin, wife Rochelle and sons, Hadley, Macoy, Reagan and Hayes of Edgar, NE; and his many friends made over the years.

A Rosary will be prayed at 7:00 p.m., Thursday, August 22, 2019, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Sutton, NE. Mass of Christian Burial will be conducted at 10:30 a.m., Friday, August 23, 2019, at the church with Father Michael Zimmer officiating. Interment will follow at Calvary Cemetery in Sutton, NE. Visitation will be Thursday, from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m., at Sutton Memorial Chapel in Sutton, NE.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be directed to the family to be designated later.

I wanted to send my condolences to Jade's family. For me personally, I remember Jade mostly as my little brother's close friend whom he would have over when we were all just kids. Jade was always polite, kind, happy, and always one of the young men that I admired greatly for his attitude and how he carried himself at a very young age. Later as time went on, and as we all aged and eventually turned into adults, on the rare occasions that I got to see him, he was still the same person that carried the same wonderful consistent characteristics that I admired in him as a child. I believe we can all look at Jade as a wonderful example of what I believe was a Christ like humility, or even meekness. Meekness is always "power under control"....
We were all very fortunate to have this example to witness.
May God Bless the entire Schoneberg family, may The Lord give you peace during this time, and may each one of us look to Jade's example as to how we should carry ourselves in our daily lives. He was a wonderful boy, and later a man, due to his family's influence, and upbringing. Today I will grieve with you for he is no longer with us on earth, but later I will rejoice with you knowing he is now with The Lord in heaven.
Sincerely,
Ryan and Gayle Griess of McKinney, Texas.

There are not adequate words to say everything that should be said here. Things are dimmer without that 10000 watt smile and considerably sadder without that quiet wit. The Good Lord called a good one home, rest easy Jade.

John~Suzanne and Schoneberg Family. While the loss of a loved one is never easy, even when anticipated, it is most certainly the hardest when they are taken from us too soon. The recent loss of Jade is definitely in the category of those hard losses for which there is so painful a reminder of what might have been.

I offer my sincere condolence and deepest sympathy on your loss. May the outpouring of sympathy, the kind acts of friends and strangers and the comfort in knowing that your loss is felt by many, help you through this difficult time.

I ask for God's blessings on you and your wonderful family. May you find the courage and strength to move forward in peace and confidence and in knowing that his was a life well-lived.

Yours In Peace,
