An only child, Jared Leighton Danenberg was born Aug 24, 1943 in Chicago, IL to Genevieve Weiner (maiden name) and Milton Danenberg. He attended Lane Tech High School, skipped college in favor of a 4 year Army enlistment, and later earned a Bachelor of Science degree from University of Ohio while working as Metal Engineer and EPA regional expert. He married Charlotte Deitch in 2003 while working at Elkay Manufacturing in Broadview, IL, and moved to Ashdown in 2005 upon retirement. A strong veteran advocate, he immersed himself with American Legion Post 124, and served as the Post Commander for several years. He is survived by his only child, from his (first) marriage to Heide Kraemer in 1964, Michael Danenberg and wife, Lisa of Fleming Island, FL; three grandchildren, Kyle Carag, Jocelyn Danenberg and Brett Danenberg. One of his favorite self-descriptions is "I'm a left threaded, 7-sided nut" He passed away Wednesday, January 11th, 2017 at his current residence in Ashdown. At Jerry's explicit request, a memorial service will be held Saturday, January 21st, 2017, 11:00 AM at Madden Funeral Home in Ashdown instead of a wake/funeral or viewing. In lieu of flowers, his final wishes included consideration for a donation to the American Legion.
