James (Jim) Joseph Strasser, a beloved son, brother, uncle, and friend, passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones at House of the Dove on the morning of April 12, 2024, at the age of 58.

Jim was born on February 14, 1966, in Stevens Point to the late Frederick A. Strasser and Mollie M. (née Courtney) Strasser. He graduated from SPASH in 1984 and went on to earn his engineering degree from the UW-Stout.

Throughout his life, Jim had a passion for hunting, trapping, fishing, and motorsports. In his youth, he spent many weekends traveling to motocross events in Central Wisconsin, where he developed a close-knit circle of friends in the racing community. Jim pursued his dream of working for Joe Gibbs Racing and moved to Mooresville, North Carolina.

He was a proud inventor, holding a United States Patent as an Inventor US 7,083,514 B1 for an Air-Filtration System for Vehicle Operators, granted on August 1, 2006. Jim was part of multiple winning championship racing teams for Bobby Labonte and Tony Stewart, a source of great pride and accomplishment for him. He cherished his years at Joe Gibbs Racing and the friendships he made in North Carolina.

Later in life, Jim returned to Stevens Point to be closer to family. He traveled often to Idaho to hunt and formed close friendships there as well. Jim was known for his determination to follow his dreams, his steadfast faith, and his fighting spirit. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

Jim is survived by his mother, Mollie (Courtney) Strasser; his sisters, Deborah Strasser, Heidi (Matt Redfern) Mansavage, and Dori (Mitchell) Holm; his nieces and nephews, Courtney and Forrest Holm, Tanner, and Josh and Makayla Mansavage.
