Jonathan Chad Slusser, 44 years old, passed away January 12, 2020 in Rochester, NY. He was born December 26, 1975 in Lancaster to Jon and Janet Richard Slusser.
Chad graduated from Pequea Valley High School, Lancaster County, where he served as an officer with the State FFA, played basketball, and was also the team Captain and goalie on their soccer team.
He continued his love for soccer, as a team Captain playing at Slippery Rock University, where he also received his degree in Park and Resource Management. After graduating from Slippery Rock University, he received an internship at Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
Always an avid hunter, fisherman, and all-around outdoorsman, he traveled all throughout the country enjoying what he loved so much. Even with his career path, Chad gravitated towards the outdoorsman industries. His most recent job was with Amchar Wholesale, Inc. in Rochester, NY, where he was a Senior Buyer. Those who knew Chad always looked forward to a trip to the family cabin, for the Spring Turkey Hunting Season and Elk viewing in the Fall, as well as gathering on Sundays to watch his beloved EAGLES.
He was always surrounded by his loving family and friends, and there wasn't a person he met who didn't become his friend. He was a loving son and brother and he will always be loved and remembered.
Chad is survived by his parents, Janet and Jon Slusser of Landisburg; sister, Amy Kersey and husband Eric of Leesburg, VA; brother, Casey Slusser and children Emma and Jon Slusser of Cabot, PA.
