June 10, 1952 - April 25, 2013
Charles W. "Charlie" Jaegers, 60, of Jefferson City, died Thursday, April 25, 2013, at Capital Region Medical Center. He was born on June 10, 1952, in Jefferson City, the son of the late Leonard Peter and Helen Marie (Wankum) Jaegers. He was a 1970 graduate of Fatima High School. He received a Bachelor's Degree in Business and a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting from Lincoln University. He was united in marriage on June 1, 1974, in Meta, to Sara Sue Kalaf who resides at the home. Charlie co-owned and operated Jaegers Accounting for the past 33 years. He was a member of First United Methodist Church and Elks Lodge No. 513. Although he enjoyed golfing, in any weather, Charlie's passion was his wife, children, grandchildren, siblings, nieces, nephews and friends. He loved to entertain, bar-b-que, and any social occasion where he could laugh and spend time with family and friends. Spontaneous trips with his wife to visit out of town family were a great distraction from the accounting business he shared with his brother. He was a selfless, giving person who always found great reward in helping those in need.
