Obituary

 Jeffrey “Jeff” Alan Skuza, Fargo, ND passed away on March 11, 2014 at the age of 47. He was born April 22, 1966 in Minneapolis, MN to Thomas and Donna Skuza.

Jeff grew up in Becker, MN and graduated from Becker High School in 1984. He went on to earn his Criminal Justice degree from Minnesota State University Moorhead in 1988. While completing college he worked as a Loss Prevention Officer for Target Corporation and later at Nash Finch Corporation in Fargo, ND.  While working for Nash Finch he was transferred to Sioux Falls, SD in 1989.

On September 12, 1990, he met the love of his life, Sherrie Brown, of Dell Rapids. They fell in love on the dance floor that night. On September 28, 1991, they were united in marriage in Dell Rapids, SD and moved to Fargo, ND that week where Jeff began his Law Enforcement career with the Fargo Police Department on October 7, 1991.

Jeff started his 22 year career as a patrol officer on the north side of Fargo. For several years during this time he served as a Field Training Officer (FTO) for numerous trainees. He was promoted to Sergeant in January 2001. As a Sergeant, he supervised Patrol, the Training Facility, and Investigations. He also served as Public Information Officer. He was a founding member of the Peer Assistance Crisis Team (PACT). PACT is a group of individuals with representation from all Emergency Services that helps emergency responders deal with stressful events. From 2006-2007 he sat on the Board of Directors for the Red River Children’s Advocacy Center. Jeff was a key individual in fighting the floods in Fargo.  Jeff was nominated in 2009 for “Police Officer of the Year”. In July 2010 he traveled to Quantico, VA to attend a 10 week program at the FBI National Academy. He graduated from the 242nd Academy on September 17, 2010. On March 21, 2011, Jeff was promoted to Lieutenant. In March 2012, Jeff received a letter from the Secret Service for his support and assistance to them during a visit from Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney.  As a leader, Jeff always wanted to recognize and support his officers. He has been a long-term member of the National Fraternal Order of Police and Charter Member of the North Dakota Red River Valley Lodge.  Jeff coordinated the start of the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) program within Fargo Police Department. He was involved in the regional coordination of the Regional CIT Team.

Although he was very dedicated to his job, the most important aspect of his life was his family. As the oldest child, he was always helpful and protective of his siblings and his parents. When he had a family of his own, he continued to be just as dedicated.  Jeff stated many times that being a father was the best job in the world. He cherished the time he was able to spend with his boys, especially outdoor activities such as fishing, canoeing, and hunting. As a family, they enjoyed quality time spent together at their seasonal lake site in Northern Minnesota. They enjoyed many family trips over the years, including a trip to Australia in 2003.

Jeff is survived by his wife of 22 years, Sherrie, two sons Travis and Nicholas, all of Fargo;  his parents, Tom and Donna Skuza, Alexandria MN;  his brother, Richard (Tracy), Sioux Falls, SD; his sister, Sally (Greg) Venema, St. Michael, MN; his grandmother, Dorothy Zoerb, Minneapolis, MN; uncle, Don (Jeanette) Zoerb, Palmer, AK; aunt, Dawn (Jon) Rasmussen, Kennett Square, PA; uncle Doug Skuza, Clear Lake, MN; his mother-in-law, Elaine Brown, Dell Rapids, SD; his father-in-law Earl Brown, Dell Rapids, SD; his brothers-in-law Tony (Rose) Brown, Dell Rapids, SD; Jeff Brown, Colman, SD; Dan Brown, Dell Rapids, SD; 14 nieces and nephews and many cousins.

Jeff is preceded in death by his grandparents, Arthur “Art” and Emma Skuza, and Donald W. Zoerb Sr, special friend, Troy Koskela, uncle, Dale Zoerb and aunt, Diane Thorson.

    I do not know your family but often attended Mass at Saints Anne and Joachim Catholic Church while I was teaching at ND
    SU and completing my Masters degree.

    I read of LT. Skuza’s passing while searching for the obituary of the son of some friends of ours from Fargo, whose son died the same week, having lost his battle with depression.

    I want you to know that I have been praying for your family daily, that God will comfort you and give you strength.

    Sherrie,
    I was very sad to hear of Jeff’s death. I never met Jeff in person but I saw him on tv and thought highly of him. I have met you a couple of times and you worked with my wife Paula and my daughter Carrie. I lost Paula a year ago and I know it’s not easy to lose your spouse. God will give you the strength to get past this tragic event and your life will go on. . . it will be very different but it will go on. God’s peace be with you.

    Jeff was been my direct Sgt. or Lt. for a majority of my career. I have always felt that Jeff was my biggest supporter in the police department. He had a special way of making people feel valued and important. I will deeply miss his leadership, friendship, sense of humor and his overall positivity. He left us too soon but his impact on me will stay for the rest of my life.

    Fargo Our paths crossed at times while we both were doing our work for the community. He was there for me a couple times when I needed the squeeze on the shoulder and the “great job” “thanks”.

    I remember my very first police ride-a-long was with Jeff in the early 90s. I was just a teenager and was so thrilled to have the experience. I later got to know him professionally working for Cass County and serving as a CIT coach. Jeff will always be remembered as a great person and a great cop! My deepest sympathy goes out to his family, friends, and coworkers. May your cherished memories console you during this difficult time.

    .

    Our cousin Dick & Bev Golembeck e-mailed me about the death in our family.

    Long Beach MississippiSherrie and family, my prayers and sympathy are with you in this time of sadness. May you find comfort in your memories and consolation in your faith. And may Jeff be at peace in the glory of our God for all eternity.

  23. Tom Pantera says:

    Alva OKEveryone who knew Jeff grieves deeply with you.
    I knew Jeff during my time as a reporter for The Forum. In fact, I first met him when I did a story about Fargo cops going through the academy in Bismarck. I liked him immediately and my fondness for him only grew over the years. He was a great cop, but more importantly, he was a deeply decent man — honorable, friendly, caring. And I can tell you, every reporter who worked with him shares those feelings.
    The word “tragedy” often is used cheaply, but Jeff’s death is the true definition of the word. The world in general and Fargo in particular are much poorer without him. The family is in my thoughts.

    Officer Skuza was an excellent cop. He helped my family many times and was always so kind and caring. I was shocked by his untimely passing. It is unbelievable. For all the good he has done he will no doubt live on in many hearts and be missed by many. I am sorry to Sherrie and his 2 sons for their loss. This is indeed tragic. RIP Officer Skuza you will be remembered.

    May God bless you during this time.

    May you see God’s light on the path ahead
    When the road you walk is dark.

    You do not walk alone. ~ Irish Blessing

    Fargo ND
    The tight-knit group in the lieutenant/D.C. office will never be the same without Jeff in our midst. Everyday we talked about policing, working together, and our families. It was the best… Jeff was a good friend to all of us and we all knew that if any of us needed anything, Jeff would drop whatever he was doing and be there for you. He was a perfectionist, the ultimate professional and a cops cop.

    Everytime Jeff talked about family, you could sense how proud he was of his boys, and how much he loved Sherrie.

    Sherrie, our hearts break for you and go out to you and the boys. We’re so sorry. We lift you up in our prayers.

    West Fargo Prayers go out to all the members of the FPD and his family. Jeff and I go way back to the time we were 19 and worked at Target together…Back then Jeff was in charge of security and his call name was “Mr. Brooks”. He was always lurking behind shelves, etc.

    I’ve ran into Jeff thru the years now and then, he used to stop by my salon downtown, at night just to make sure thing were going ok… Such a nice man making his way around the businesses, getting to know the owners and workers.

    Sometimes he’d pull up next to my car just to say hi, asking if I’m staying out of trouble…lol. I am shocked and saddened by his death.. Heavens got a great man!! R.I.P Jeff!! You will be missed by everyone!

    Sherrie, our entire family sends all its love, condolences and prayer to you during this very difficult time. Jeff was an incredible and accomplished man and so proud of you, your work and the boys. You were both always so friendly, so approachable, so kind in our many conversations over the years at games, school, and when dropping off kids. At this time of tremendous loss, please know that while there is physical separation, the love never ends.
    Holding you closely in heart and prayer,
    Jane & Pat I. and family

    Forever mine.
