Jonathan “Jon” Bunse – In Our Care – March 21, 2024

Jonathan “Jon” Lee Bunse
1975 – 2024

Clarksdale, Missouri…Jonathan Lee Bunse, 48, of Clarksdale, Missouri, passed away Wednesday, March 20, 2024. He was born April 18th, 1975 in St. Joseph, Missouri, to Tom and Joyce (Lawson) Bunse. Jon married April (Overturf) Bunse in 1996, and became the father of Breanna and Emma Bunse. September 10, 2019, he was blessed with his third daughter, Adria Bunse. January 3, 2023, was married to Moureen Ann (Kajumba) Bunse.

Jon was a 1993 graduate of Maysville High School. He later went on to become a talented, self-employed craftsman for Custom Crafters Cabinets.

Jon was a dedicated, strong and resilient father who made sure his kids obtained those same attributes.  While we lost our most beloved Jon, many have lost a friend. There was so much more to Jon than just a dad or husband, though to us, that was his greatest role. He was also a friend, a coworker, colleague, cousin, brother, stand-in paternal figure to the fatherless, and the list goes on.  His love and strength will never be forgotten.

He is survived by his wife, Moureen Ann (Kajumba) Bunse and his three daughters: Breanna, Emma, and Adria Bunse.

A visitation only will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Wednesday, March 27, 2024 at Turner Family Funeral Home of Maysville.

Cremation under the direction of Turner Family Funeral Home of Maysville.

    We send our condolences to Jon’s family and extended family of friends and business acquaintances. Jon was an extremely talented man, his craftsmanship was exceptional. We were blessed to know him and experience his workmanship firsthand.
    Jon loved his daughters so much, he would tell us stories about things they would do together. Jon’s sense of humor and caring attitude will be missed.

    As Jon’s St. Joseph Lafayette High School woodworking teacher, I was fortunate to help him hone his early skills and passion for woodworking where he excelled as one of my best students in 33 years of teaching. He used his exceptional talents to establish his own modern and successful kitchen and bathroom remodeling business. I was fortunate to hire Jon to complete the total kitchen upgrade of my home of 50 years. His dedication to detail, quality workmanship and design was unsurpassed. I counted Jon as one my true friends and saddened to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with Jon’s children and wife as they go through this very difficult time.

    So sorry to hear of his passing. Jon had a good heart. He just wanted to be a friend. He was always very generous kind and helpful to me. He just wanted friends to talk too, mostly about his daughter who I know he loved. I will certainly miss him.

    Our community has lost a one-of-a-kind, authentic, master craftsman that has left behind a legacy of quality and timeless beauty in homes and businesses throughout northwest Missouri for us to enjoy for years come. We’ll miss seeing Jon pushing his daughter in the swing at city park, the heartfelt (‘realness’) conversations in the wood shop and the late night texts that we had to decipher like crosswords the following day. Prayers for Jon’s family and close friends that have lost more than we can fathom. May we all draw near to our Savior for strength, peace and understanding during this difficult time. Care & Sympathy from the Faber family
