Jack Richard Gustafson

Nov 10, 2023 - Feb 22, 2024

Minneapolis, MN

Jack Richard Gustafson, 3 month old son of Brad and Kassy (Linbo) Gustafson, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, February 22nd, 2024. There will be memorial service at 11:00 am, Saturday, March 2nd at Trinity Lutheran Church of Minnehaha Falls, 5212 41st Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55417. Memorials of books, swaddles or stuffed animals may be given to University of Minnesota NICU. This season of our life started at the routine 20-week ultrasound. About halfway through the appointment, the sonographer confirmed she knew the baby's gender, then went on to say she was still looking for a couple images she was having difficulty with. The next week chaos entered our life as we were flooded with information and trying to figure out what steps we needed to take. Over that span, we were told we're having a girl then found out he's actually a boy, we learned the recommended medical facility for our situation was out of network for insurance (thankfully that's sorted out), and most importantly, we learned our little boy has a hole in his diaphragm referred to as Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). In that 20-week ultrasound, we could see Jack's stomach was in the upper left part of his chest and his heart was pushed to the right side of his body. Starting late July, we began weekly appointments with Maternal Fetal Medicine to consistently monitor Jack's development, paying close attention to his heart and lungs. During those months, Kassy physically felt well and Jack was passing almost all of the tests they ran each week, but there was a constant level of discomfort with the question marks in our future. CDH has a wide range of outcomes, and the doctors had no way of identifying where he'd land on that range until he was born. The evening of November 8th we drove to Masonic Children's Hospital for the scheduled induction, and the week since then has been a blur. Jack Richard Gustafson was born November 10th, 2023 at 12:09pm. Immediately after delivery, he was intubated and sent over to the NICU. His lungs were small (pulmonary hypoplasia) and collapsed, and the blood pressure from his heart to his lungs was extremely high (pulmonary hypertension). After some trouble getting his central lines placed, they were able to get a PICC where it needed to be and medication got him to a relatively stable condition for the evening. That night we got a phone call at 1:00 am saying they needed to change his medication and then another at 3:00 am to tell us there was a high likelihood he'd need to be placed on an ECMO machine. Within an hour, they confirmed the ECMO was needed and began the procedure to place it. Between the ECMO placement and today (Nov 16), we've had more ups than downs. His vitals have been mostly stable over the past week, his color is better and he's comfortable, and the echocardiograms and x-rays are showing small signs of improvement. The name Jack means God is Gracious; that truth is something we hold closely right now. The journey ahead looks long and difficult, but there's plenty of reason for hope and we've been catching glimpses of how God is moving in this season. We look forward to the day we can look back on this story and more clearly see how God used it for our good. Jack Richard Gustafson: Resilience & Relationship Through his 104 days, Jack overcame far more than anyone expected. The last week of his life was filled with memories Kassy and I will cherish forever, and we only got to experience those moments because Jack fought through numerous challenges that could have taken his life much earlier. His resilience was a gift in itself as his journey taught us about him and about life, and his resilience is what gifted us the last week of holding him consistently while surrounded by family and friends. Jack loved people, and those who met Jack loved him and us well. Each time he got into his mom’s arms, he would relax and his vital signs would move in the right direction; his way of saying ‘thank you.’ Whether it was his nurses, OT or music therapy, he would consistently indicate he was grateful for those helping him. Beyond his direct connection with those who cared for him, he created an environment for us to build meaningful relationships in the NICU. Because of Jack, we felt love deeper than anything we’d experienced before from family and friends, from other NICU families, and from the medical team. The people who were part of his journey, the relationships built during his journey, will forever change our lives. Many of you have been praying for our family through this season and have offered your support in a variety of ways. We have felt heavily supported and loved. Thank you!!! Jack is survived by his parents, Brad and Kassy; grandparents, Rick and Gloria Gustafson, Scott (fiancée, Amy Berskow) Linbo, and Chad and Kris Oakleaf; aunts and uncles, Alex and Nate Esboldt, Austin Linbo, Madi Linbo, Mark Linbo and Jordyn and Mike Lindaman; great grandparents, Judy and Wayne Fleming, Verdella Martin, and Bill Oakleaf.

Minneapolis, MN

Theodore (Ted) Wilson died at home on February 21, 2024. He was born in Elgin, Illinois in 1935. In high school, he earned straight A’s which led him to receive a scholarship to attend Cornell University. Both his Bachelors in Engineering Physics and his Ph.D. is Aeronautical Engineering were taken at Cornell. He enjoyed being a member of the Beta Theta Pi Fraternity. Ted was a member of the ROTC in college and completed his service at the Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena, CA from 1962-1964. He was offered a job at CalTech, but he wanted to return to the Midwest. Ted joined the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics at the University of Minnesota in 1964 and remained a valuable teacher and researcher for 38 years. As a Professor, he taught courses in all three subfields in the department, both laboratory and lecture courses, and courses at all levels, from sophomore mechanics to courses at the graduate level. He advised 15 students to the Ph.D, all of whom went on to successful careers. The students awarded him the Outstanding Instructor Award in 1990. He also served the department as Director of Graduate Studies and as Associate Head and served the national scientific community as a member of the Respiratory and Applied Physiology Study Section of the National Institutes of Health. Ted was one of the earlier workers in Biomedical Engineering, and for most of his career his research focused on respiratory physiology. He collaborated with physiologists, many at the Mayo Clinic, in developing mathematical models for the mechanics of respiration. This work contributed to understanding the relationship between micro- and macro-mechanics of the lung. His tenure included sabbaticals at Universities in Oslo, Berne, Boston, Houston, Brussels, and Naples where he made lifelong friends. He was the author of more than 100 research papers and became an authority in his primary field, respiratory mechanics, which resulted in his book, Respiratory Mechanics, in 2016. Besides doing meaningful work, Ted enjoyed life. He played baseball (catcher) in high school and college, and enjoyed going to Twins and Saints games with his family, as well as coaching his son’s baseball team. He loved all things Italian, which resulted in taking many trips there, cooking Italian food, and driving a Vespa around Minneapolis for many years. He loved music, especially Bach and Hayden, and played the piano and harpsichord. He loved croissants, chocolate, puzzles, math, eating outside, reading, Lake Superior, camping, cakes, wine, roses, gardening, and making jam. Most of all, he loved sharing all of this with his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. He is survived by his four children, Rosalind Elstrom, Alexander Wilson (Jeanne Finley), Margaret Wilson (Joseph Gray), and Emily Hall (Tucker Hall); grandchildren, Katrina, Ben, Dan, Thea, Zane, August, Annalee, Clara, Naomi, and June; great grandchildren, Anna and Kloe; and niece Laura Wilson (Tom).

Minneapolis, MN

"Ruth Hagestuen started her nursing career as an Air Force nurse during the Vietnam War after which she lived and worked for 13 years as a nurse and collaborator in developing health care programs in Madagascar and Bangladesh. Her Madagascar experience included an opportunity to work with a team of Malagasy midwives in conceptualization and delivery of a program providing health services and education for mothers with children under the age of five. This program, developed through dialogue with villagers in Madagascar, expanded to become national in scope. In Bangladesh, she was a consultant for nursing administration and nursing education at the International Center for Diarrheal Research to raise the level and quality of care offered through the Dhaka based hospital. After returning to the US, Ruth completed her Masters in Theology. Two years later, she accepted the position as nurse coordinator and then program manager of the multidisciplinary team in the Parkinson\u0027s clinic at Methodist Hospital. As this expanded to become the Struthers Parkinson\u0027s Center, Ruth became its Program Director. Because of her passion to meet the needs of many people whose lives were affected by Parkinson\u0027s disease, Ruth joined the staff of the National Parkinson Foundation in June of 2000 as National Program Director. As director, she implemented the development of Centers of Excellence using Struthers as a model. She designed a program called Allied Team Training for Parkinson\u0027s to educate health care professionals in interdisciplinary care. And she facilitated outreach to underserved communities to provide state of the art, culturally competent, interdisciplinary care in Parkinson\u0027s disease both nationally and internationally. As a speaker and writer regarding care and support of persons with Parkinson\u0027s, Ruth co-authored a book entitled Health Connect, a Practical Guide to Community Outreach. In retirement, Ruth tapped into her wild side and joined the senior rock performance group called Alive and Kickin\u0027. Performing on stage with raucous, beloved friends gave her profound joy. Calmer days found her wrapped in her love of nature. And just beginning to dabble in rosemaling, she said it could wait to be perfected in heaven! Ruth\u0027s wife Bonnie, her children Nathan (Christy) and Michele, and grandchildren Rowan and Elizabeth deeply mourn her loss while celebrating a life well lived. A Celebration of Life will be held at St. John\u0027s Episcopal Church, 4201 Sheridan Ave. S., Minneapolis, MN, Saturday March 9 at 1:00 p.m. with a reception following.
