December 25, 1975 - June 26, 2016
Jeff Wilson was born in Dallas, TX on December 25, 1975, on a snowy Christmas Day. He grew up primarily in College Station, TX, where he attended Bryan High School. He graduated from Texas A&M University and was a member of Sigma Chi fraternity. During these years in Bryan-College Station, he made friends for a lifetime. He was a dedicated alumni of Texas A&M, demonstrating a true Aggie spirit.
During high school and college, Jeff gained a love of the outdoors, especially hiking and climbing. He was proud that he succeeded in climbing two of the mountains over 14,000 feet in Colorado. He also loved football, music and playing the guitar. In addition, some of his happiest moments were spent in Rockport and Aransas Pass, where he learned to fish and to play in the ocean.
Jeff married his college sweetheart, Brenda Jones Wilson. They are the parents of two children, Alex and Chase Wilson.
Jeff’s joy in life was his children, Alex and Chase. From attending the father-daughter dances with Alex to playing soccer with Chase, he treasured each moment he spent with them. He was a loving, devoted and patient dad, able to combine fun, comfort and discipline with great kindness.
Jeff is survived by his parents Barbara and Frank Clark and Bill Wilson. He is also survived by his former spouse Brenda Wilson and his children Alex and Chase Wilson; brothers and sister: Stephen Wilson, Frank Ray Clark, Valerie Clark, and Bruce Clark; sisters-in-law: Stephanie Clark and Theresa Clark; aunts and uncles: Carolyn Patton and Dale Nickeson, Jan Haney, and Fred and Doris Clark; cousins: Laurie and Glenn Bandy, Elizabeth and Christian Rammerstorfer; Michael and Cathy Haney, Amy and Geoff Stow, and Jenny Clark; and many nieces and nephews.
