Jeremy Lasher


Jeremiah (Jeremy) Gene Lasher, 46, Bismarck, passed away of natural causes on December 19, 2022.  Funeral services will be on Friday, December 23, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. at the Bismarck Funeral Home.  For those unable to attend, the service will be livestreamed on the Bismack Funeral Home Facebook page. Visitation will be one hour prior to the start of the service.

Jeremy was born 11/24/1976 at 11:24 AM in Minot, ND, to Kimberly Kinn and Tony Lasher. He spent his first months of life on his grandparent’s farm near Lake Audubon until moving to Washburn and soon after to Bismarck, ND.

Jeremy attended school in Bismarck and obtained a certificate in heating and air at Bismarck State College. Growing up, and throughout his life, he loved to hunt, fish, and bowl. He started a yardwork company in his teens and was named young Business Entrepreneur in 1996.

In 2003 Jeremy established Bismarck Landscaping and Services, specializing in hydroseeding, fencing, and retaining walls. He had a love for growing things and enjoyed giving tours of his nursery at home.

On November 12, 1998, Jeremy met the love of his life Tanya Tischer on her 21st birthday. On her 22nd birthday he proposed, and they were married on September 16, 2000. They were blessed with two children, daughter Brianna and son Bryce.

Spring and summer were the work season with a break on the 4th of July for family and booming fireworks. In the fall he enjoyed going hunting with his children in his homemade hunting blind west of Hazelton and watching Century High and NDSU football games. Winters were spent ice fishing with his sidekick Stuart, friends and family.

Feeding his family was a great joy, processing sausage, jerky and bacon, cooking his famed knoephla soup, smoking brisket, baking many desserts, and making sure there was always monster cookies and hamburger doughy things (fleischkuechle) in the freezer.

Blessed and grateful for sharing his life is his wife, Tanya; their children, Brianna and Bryce Lasher, mother Kimberly (Todd) Sayler, grandparents, Marvin and Joan Kinn, brothers Cole Lasher, Eric Gruer, sister Amanda (Eric) Welte, mother-in-law Laurie (Ted) Petersen, father-in-law Roger (Bev) Tischer, brothers-in-law Chad (Jennifer) Tischer, Scott (Donya) Tischer, Ryan (Whitney) Petersen, sisters-in-law Shannon Brendefur, Neelie (Aweis) Brendefur and many uncles, aunts, nieces and nephews.

Jeremy was proceeded in death by his grandfather Lloyd Lasher, Uncle David Aldinger, and his cousin Serina Schnabel.

In lieu of flowers, the family would prefer memorials go to Bismarck Cops and Kids Fishing Derby or Luer’em for life (PO box 547, Bismarck ND 58502-0547)

I’m deeply sorry your family is experiencing the pain of a loss like this. Jeremy was a great man and a great boss. My heart goes out to all of you.

A very gentle caring soul who exemplified humanity and truly cared for others and the work he perfected. Grateful I met him

Jeremy was a kind, caring man. He went above and beyond helping us restore our large lot after the 2011 flood. He was a great human being. Such a loss. My heart goes out to Tanya and the kids-..

I’m so, so, sorry. I am praying for you, Tanya, and your children, often throughout the day. 🙏

When he was a little boy, Jeremy was his great-grandpa’s fishing buddy. They would spend many hours by the lake shore. As he grew up, he continued to spend time fishing and hunting at the farm. He always had a big smile on his face. What a fine young man he turned out to be! My thoughts and prayers go out to Tanya, Brianna, Bryce, Kim & Todd, Joan & Marvin, and to all of his family and friends.

My deepest sympathy to Jeremy’s wife, children and extended family. I did not know Jeremy but I knew his granddad and know that Jeremy inherited his love for fishing from Lloyd. You are all in my prayers during this most difficult time. God’s blessings on you.

Prayers to the family during this difficult time. Jeremy was a dear friend of my husband. He was the nicest guy you’ll meet and will be dearly missed.

I am deeply saddened by this! I just found out! I’m so sorry! I was actually going to call Jeremy after the new years. My deepest condolences!
