Jareth Zimmerman Brashers-Krug
Jareth Zimmerman Brashers-Krug, 23, died suddenly of a brain bleed in their bed on Friday, June 26, 2020. Jareth also was known to friends and loved ones by the lovingly chosen names of David, Hans and Mick. Jareth was born in Baltimore, Md., and moved to Iowa City at
the age of 12. They attended Longfellow Elementary,
South East Junior High and City High School, graduating in the Class of 2015. They attended a year at Mount Holyoke College, which they loved.
Jareth is survived by their parents, Gail and Tom Brashers-Krug; and by their five younger siblings, Ben, Julie, Coby, Liz and Ollie. Jareth also is survived by their grandparents, Kathryn Krug, Rose Brashers and Dan Brashers; as well as a number of uncles, aunts, cousins and dear friends whom they considered chosen family.
Jareth embodied compassion and generosity and would give a friend or even a needy stranger their last dollar. They were smart and hilarious and wise. Jareth loved music, justice, queer culture, cats and Jewish culture. They hated cruelty of any kind, corduroy and Nazis. Jareth's loss leaves a gaping hole in our hearts.
Due to the pandemic, services will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, July 2, via Zoom. Details and the link will be available at www.lensingfuneral.com. Online condolences may be sent to the family at www.lensingfuneral.com.
