In memory of
Gregory Gene Jespersen
Gregory Gene Jespersen (4/26/1955 - 10/12/2016) Greg was born April 26, 1955, at War Memorial Hospital in Paso Robles. He was the son of Chris and Virginia Jespersen and the beloved brother of Pamela Ryan and Thom Jespersen. He attended the Lewis Avenue Elementary School and Atascadero High school, where he wrestled, played football and participated in the Future Farmers of America. Greg continued his education at Cuesta College where he also wrestled. Most of you remember Greg working at the family business, Jespersen's Tire, where he worked side by side with his father servicing the community's tire and auto needs for over 50 years. His joyous laughter and personality brightened up every room. Greg always believed and preached, "You should always treat people the way you want to be treated, with love and respect." His love for helping people was apparent in the relationships he shared with his family, friends and customers. On May 5, 1985, he married the love of his life, Luanne. Together they raised three beautiful children: their two sons Christjan and Gunnar and daughter Josie. Later they were blessed with two grandsons, Crispin and Grayson. Greg's greatest success in life was his family. He was extremely proud of his family and wasn't shy in expressing it. Greg always lived life to the fullest, whether it was waterskiing early morning glass at Lake Nacimiento or skiing fresh powder; he enjoyed every moment. Yet, it was the little things that mattered most to Greg, such as dinner with the family, sunsets on the ranch, and just getting out of bed in the morning. If you asked how he was doing he'd most likely respond, "Life is Good." And for Greg, Life was Good!
