Obituary for James "Jim" Chrisman

James A. “Jim” Chrisman, 69 years of Fremont, NE passed away Saturday, April 13, 2024, at his home surrounded by loved ones.

Jim was born on June 15, 1954, in Fremont, NE and graduated Class of 1972 from Fremont High School. Jim worked for the Chicago Northwestern Railroad until 1991 and then retired. After many years of living together, Jim married Lori Carlson on September 9, 2020, at their home in Fremont.

Forever known as the Mushroom Man, Jim always had a great story to tell. He loved nature and spending time outdoors. With a great sense of humor, Jim was also a bit of a jokester. You could hear his loud laughter bellowing from across the room after every punchline. He was also a great cook known for his chili and his famous sunny side up breakfast.

He was preceded by his parents and a brother.

He is survived by wife, Lori; sons, Gage Chrisman, Eric (Katie) Chrisman; stepsons, Nathan Carlson and Brandon Carlson; grandchildren, Hunter Chrisman, Lydia Carlson, and River Chrisman.

A private service will be held at a later date.
