Jarrett Schoen, age 19 of Appleton, passed away at his home on Thursday morning, May 12, 2016. Jarrett was born in Appleton on October 3, 1996, the son of Shelly (Jeff) Jentz of Appleton and Rodney Schoen of Hudson, Florida.
Everyone who knew Jarrett knew how big his heart was. He would do anything for anyone at any time and was always supportive of everyone. He was a free spirit who would stand up to anyone; Jarrett was a one and only, far from a conformist. He was the protector of his family, and was also a fashion trendsetter with his hairstyle, shoes, and signature cap. He was a talented artist, a rock star, a movie lover, a skateboarder, and a food lover who always texted his mom, “Ma, what are you making for dinner?” He loved his dog and his pet snake, the beach life, and tattoos. He raced dirt bikes, traded trucks, and played pool with his grandpa and dad. He loved camping and county music, and knew every line from the movie STEP BROTHERS.
He is survived by his parents: Shelly (Jeff) Jentz and Rodney Schoen; three brothers: Kameron (fiancée Molly Bryant) Schoen, Zachary (Olivia Van Handel) Schoen, and Justice Jentz; his girlfriend and companion: Maloree Lazor; maternal grandmother: Elaine Peotter of Kaukauna; paternal grandparents: Richard and Joanne Schoen of Howard; two aunts: Lori Peotter of Manitowoc and Jennifer (Jeff) Tennessen of Darboy; an uncle: Thomas (Leslie) Peotter of Kaukauna; a niece, and several cousins. His second cousins looked up to him like no other. Jarrett was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather: Melvin Peotter.
Family and friends of Jarrett are invited to gather at the Fargo Funeral Home, 400 W. Wisconsin Avenue in Kaukauna, on Saturday, May 14, 2016 from 5:00 PM until 8:00 PM to share memories and good times. There will be a brief prayer service at 6:00 PM.
