Obituary of Jeffrey Michael Mardesich

Jeffrey Michael Mardesich passed away peacefully on November 20, 2022, at the age of 53 -- in his home, surrounded by his family -- after a lengthy and hard-fought battle with cancer.  He was a beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle and soon to be grandfather, “Pops”.  


Jeff was born on April 8, 1969, to Anton and Joan Mardesich. He attended Gridley Schools and graduated in the class of 1988. He began running his own farm at the age of 18 and continued until very recently, with the help of his loving family. Jeff dearly loved golfing, hunting, rodeo, and spending time at Lake Almanor. There was nothing he enjoyed more than time with his family and friends. Jeff was continually the life of the party, and never knew a stranger. He was loved by all and will be missed by many.  


Jeff was preceded in death by his father, Anton Mardesich; and nephew Hudson Brosious. Jeff is survived by Brooke, his devoted wife of 30 years; 4 children Madison, Mason (Rylee), Davis (Taylor) and Ally; a grandson on the way; his mother, Joan; sisters, Antonine (Chris) Brosious, Jill (Danny) Stephens; and many beloved nieces and nephews.  


Services will be held Tuesday, November 29th at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Gridley, beginning at 11 o’clock in the morning. A Celebration of Life will immediately follow at the Mardesich Residence. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Jeff Mardesich Community Support Fund at the Bank of the West in Gridley.  


Arrangements entrusted to Gridley-Block Funeral Chapel.
