Obituary for Jace C. Harris

Jace Harris was born in Sterling, CO on March 27, 1992 to Jay Harris and Dana Sonnenberg-Harris. Jace grew up as an all-around cowboy. By age two he was sneaking out of the house just trying to get on a horse and later dragging his little sister, Karlee, along with him. Jace went to school at Lone Star where he was active in the FFA and High School Rodeo. He was also active in the local 4-H showing beef, sheep, and horses which were his favorite. Jace married his high school sweetheart and the love of his life, Jeni Boerner on September 5, 2015. Together they have two children Waylyn and Newt and a beautiful baby on the way that is due in February.

Jace worked at the Eastern Colorado Research Center and was a self-employed rancher. He was a board member on the Cattlemen’s Association and was a member of the American Border Collie Association. He loved breeding, training, working, and trialing his border collies. Jace also loved to hunt for doves and any kind of varmints. His favorite time of the year was branding season where he could spend time with family and friends doing what he loved most, riding and roping.

Jace passed away on July 28, 2019 in Fleming, CO. A memorial service will be held on Monday, August 5th at 10:30 a.m. at the First Presbyterian Church in Sterling with Pastor Jared Sonnenberg and Reverend Jerry Rohr officiating.
