Michael George Jaschke, age 61, passed away September 28th, 2018 at Cassville Health and Rehabilitation.

He was born on June 27th, 1957 in St. Louis, Missouri the son of George and Miriam (Brojie) Jaschke. Preceding his death was his father. Surviving are his mother, Miriam Jaschke of Holiday Island, Arkansas, his daughter, Katie Jaschke of Roeland Park, Kansas, and his significant other, Stephanie Goodwin of Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

Mike received his education at Shawnee Mission West where he graduated from high school and then attended various culinary and wine courses throughout his career. He was director of food and beverage at the Crystal Dining Room in the Crescent Hotel for seventeen years. He took great pride in his career and loved serving food. He greeted everyone who walked in the dining room with a smile. He also loved animals and could never turn away a stray in need of a home. In his last years of life, he cultivated a passion for art. He journaled, practiced calligraphy, and painted daily. One passage recurred as his mantra for life. It was titled, "Choose to Live in Joy."

Services will be held at 11:30 A.M. Tuesday, October 9, 2018 at All Faith United Methodist Church in Eagle Rock, Missouri. Reverend George W. Whitney will conduct the services. Cremation arrangements are under direction of Fohn Funeral Home in Cassville, Missouri.
