Jeana E. Ryan

Jeana Elise (Fox) Ryan, 48 of Monticello, Wisconsin, was welcomed home by God on March 18, 2022, after a 2-year battle with Metastatic Melanoma, surrounded by family and friends. Born on November 28, 1973, Jeana was raised in Ada, Ohio, by the late John Harry Edward Fox and Joyce Elaine (Zimmerman) Fox.

After graduating from Ada High school in 1992, Jeana was to receive a degree in Civil Engineering from Ohio Northern University in 1996. There she was very active with cross country and indoor and outdoor track.

Jeana loved being a professional engineer and was employed by numerous civil construction firms such as Kokosing Construction Company, JF Brennen Company INC., Terra Engineering and Construction and Kraemer North America. Her passion and drive provided opportunities to collaborate on projects both domestic and abroad.

Jeana is survived by a loving and devoted husband, Jason Ryan; and six beautiful children, Jonathan, Laura, Jaelyn, Delenn, Jillian and Gossard. Also surviving is sister, JoEllen (Fox), Matthew, Cooper and Sydney Redshaw of Fishers, Indiana; and stepfather, Robert Cupples of Bluffton, Ohio.

Jeana was a loving and devoted wife, mother, sister, daughter and friend. Everyone who knew Jeana loved her. All would agree this love was reciprocated, Jeana was the picture of generosity and selflessness. She loved spending time with her children, as well as supporting their school and sporting activities. She gave endlessly to better Monticello in ways such as serving on the school board and participating in many fundraising activities to support the community. Jeana was a member of the Zwingli United Church of Christ.
