Joseph Edward "Joe" Jeffers Obituary

Joseph Edward “Joe” Jeffers, 54, Russiaville, died at 8:05 AM Saturday, March 30, 2024.  Joe was born November 11, 1969 in Kokomo, the son of William & Marjorie (Denman) Jeffers.  On April 29, 1995, in Kokomo, he married Mikki McConnell and she survives.

Joe was a 1988 graduate of Western High School.  He attended Indiana University/Purdue University in Kokomo, studying mechanical engineering.  Joe had been employed as a foreman with the City of Kokomo, working in wastewater and sewer maintenance.  He had worked for Coan Engineering for 29 years and previously worked for Acraline Products at Tipton and at Service Merchandise.  Joe was a perfectionist in his work, and would not tolerate shortcuts.  This would sometimes upset his co-workers.  He believed he was at work to do a job, not to make friends.  He was determined to give his employer quality performance.

Joe was a member of Abundant Life Church.  He enjoyed watching and traveling to cheer on his children in their sports, helping to coach and train them.  Joe was a bowler and golfer.  He loved working on home improvement projects and working in his yard.  He enjoyed drag racing and cars in general, especially Pontiacs. He could tell anything about any Pontiac ever built.   Joe’s theory on cars was that it was a mortal sin to put a different model engine in a car.

Surviving in addition to his wife of nearly 29 years, Mikki Jeffers, are his children, Jocelyn Jeffers, Brynley Erb, and Braydon Erb; brother Tony (Nancy) Erb; in-laws, Lee (Jim) Remmers, Angie (Brent) McCoy and Melissa Jeffers.  Joe was preceded in death by his parents, father-in-law, Bill McConnell and his son, Braxton Erb.

A funeral service will be held at 11 am Saturday, April 6, 2024 at Shirley & Stout Funeral Home & Crematory, 1315 W. Lincoln Road, Kokomo, with Pastor Charlie Riley officiating.  Burial will follow in Russiaville Cemetery.  Friends are invited to visit with the family from 4-7 pm Friday at the funeral home.  Memorial contributions may be made in Joe’s memory to the Glioblastoma Foundation ( Messages of condolence may be left online at
