Jeffery David Otos
Otos, Jeffery David, 47, died unexpectedly of natural causes on August 3, 2018. Born October 30, 1970 to David and Claudia Otos, Jeff was a 1989 graduate of Hermantown High School. He obtained his BA from the University of St Thomas in 1993 and his MBA from the Carlson School of Management in 2008. Jeff enjoyed a professional career in the business and finance world with the opportunity to work with many wonderful and talented people, whose relationships he cherished. Jeff possessed an uncanny ability to make people laugh. He was a stand-up comedy veteran and had the opportunity to act alongside the legendary Bill Paxton in A Simple Plan.
Jeff was a devoted father, son, brother, uncle, and friend. He held a passion for his kids, and all their youth sports. He was a proud resident of St. Louis Park, MN and would often be found at his kid's events yelling "Go Park!". He loved going North whenever he could and would take every opportunity to "head to the lake;" loving when everyone was there together, despite the ensuing chaos. Jeff gave his life to his children Ian, Calvin, and Carly and enjoyed true happiness in every moment he spent with them. He often had his children, nieces, and nephews to his apartment for "cousin sleepovers" where he impressed upon them his humor, refined his culinary skills of blending cheese dips to Doritos, and instilled chocolate makes an excellent entree. Preceded in death by his father David and son Evan, Jeff is survived by his children Ian, Calvin and Caroline, his mother Claudia, stepfather Ken Jauhola, brothers Rob (Liz) and Mike (Kathy) and many nieces and nephews. Services will be held at 2pm on August 17, 2018 at Westwood Lutheran Church, 9001 Cedar Lake Rd, St Louis Park, MN 55426. Celebration of life will follow at the Minneapolis Golf Club from 3-5pm. Memorials can be directed to Rob Otos: 8700 Virginia Circle North St. Louis Park, MN 55426
