The Jeremy Meissner Memorial Classic

Founded 2015

“If we remembered every day that we could lose someone at any moment, we would love them more fiercely and freely, and without fear – not because there is nothing to lose, but because everything can always be lost.”


On a cold day in January, we lost a father, a son, a brother, an uncle, a farmer, a fighter and a friend. The Jeremy Meissner Memorial Classic fishing tournament was created to honor the life of Jeremy Meissner and raise funds for a worthy cause in his memory. Proceeds from the event will benefit youth in the Marshfield area through the support of Fore the Kids – an initiative Jeremy was passionate about that raises funds through a number of events for various youth programs including Marshfield Clinic Pediatrics, the Child Advocacy Center and Youth Net.


May this first event be a day of celebration, remembrance and a reminder to hug those close to you and be kind to those around you. Oh and why not do it while fishing?
