James “Jayme” Lawrence Wipper, age 40, of Longville, MN, passed away on Tuesday, June 19, 2018, at his home.
Jayme was born on September 27, 1977, in St. Cloud, MN, the son of Leslie Wipper and Lynda (Connell) Hoese. He was raised in Monticello and graduated from Monticello Senior High School. Afterwards, he worked at Ford in Monticello and various other jobs before moving to Longville and learning how to drive a cement truck for 2 years before moving and working as a driver in Elk River and Buffalo. Jayme then worked for Holiday and became Assistant Manager, but then, moved back to Longville and worked as a prep cook for Northern Lights Casino until the time of his death. His full time passion though, was family (especially his nieces and nephews), friends, and FOOTBALL, more often times than not combining all three.
