Jeffery was born Jan. 22, 1962, to LeRoy and Zona (Baldwin) Luecht in Albert Lea. He attended and graduated from Albert Lea Central High. Following graduation Jeffery continued his education in computer programming online.
Jeffery married Jodi Tesch; they were later divorced. Jeffrey worked at Brown Printing, Fleet Guard, Comfort Inn Hotel and most recently for Casey’s General Store.
Jeffery was a go-getter and was always finding new things to occupy his time. Whether it be starting a small business venture, picking up new hobbies or trying new activities, Jeffery could be found doing something. He enjoyed time outdoors — fishing the local lakes and rivers, walking around town, riding his bike and especially metal detecting. These joys were shared with the most important people in his life, his family.
Whether it was his love of metal detecting with his brother-in-law, his love of fishing and riding bike with his nephews or playing board games together — time with his family was the most precious thing in life to Jeffery. Jeffery was passionate about playing pool and spending time around the pool table with his nephew, Nate, as well as his many friends and family members. He also found enjoyment in roller skating, a joy he shared with his brother, Terry, and friends for many of their younger years.
Jeffery is survived by his siblings, Dawn (Jon) Osgood of St. Ansgar, Iowa, Ronald (Lynn Hoeve) Luecht of Albert Lea, Michael Luecht of Lake Mills, Terry (Bobbi Jo) Luecht of Freeborn and Teresa (Shawn) Bottleman of Lake Mills; nieces and nephews Jeremiah (Heather) Osgood, Jenny (Tom) Compton, Justin (Stacy) Osgood, Chad Luecht, Jeremiah Luecht, Amanda Luecht, Seth Luecht, Nickalous Luecht, Shyler Luecht, Shannya Luecht, Natalie (Jeremy) Dann, Nichole Carlson and Nathan Carlson; 16 great-nieces and great-nephews; aunts and uncles Nola Akemann, Lee Baldwin, Bonnie Barrientoes, Verna Mae Sanderson, Althlea Moen and Leets Amundson; as well as many extended family members and friends.
