Born in: Greenville, IL
Resided in: Keyesport, IL

Jason T. Albert, 49, of Keyesport, IL, passed away on Thursday, April 20, 2023, Barnes Jewish Hospital, St. Louis, MO surrounded by family.

Jason was born August 4, 1973, in Greenville, IL the son of Ralph Edward and Rosemary Agnes (Bussen) Albert.

He graduated from Greenville High School in 1991 and furthered his education by graduating with an associate degree in Agricultural business from Kaskaskia College. He worked for several companies over the years starting with Moorman’s Feeding Company as a dairy specialist, Carlyle Syntec, as a maintenance technician, for 18 years, Lakeside Farms, for Jim Schaufelberger, for 3 years, which is what started his love for brown swiss cows, and Essendant, since 2016. He was also the owner and operator, along with his daughters, of Harvest Breeze Farms.

Organizations and community service were important to him as he served on many boards. He judged for dairy, soil and mechanics for the Greenville FFA and 4H Club, was on the board of directors for the National Brown Swiss Association, and currently the vice president of the Illinois Brown Swiss Association, as well as a former president.

He was never afraid of hard work and often helped other farmers out during planting and harvest season. He had a hands-on approach to work and family and tried to instill the same work ethic and family values into his children.

Collecting toy John Deere tractors was a fun hobby he enjoyed, as was traveling to cattle shows and sales. His passion, other than his family, was cows, farming, and tractors.

Jason will be missed by his children, his family, and the friends who knew him best.

He was preceded in death by his father, Ralph.

Surviving Jason are his children, Peyton (Christian) Paine of Kincaid, IL, Hannah (Jack Hilt) Albert of Keyesport, IL, Ellie Albert of Keyesport, IL; mother, Rosemary Albert of Greenville, IL; grandchildren, Paisley Randolph and Bayleigh Paine of Kincaid, IL; sisters, Cheryl (Kenny) Korte of Mulberry Grove, IL and Shelly (Clyde Lurkins) of Greenville, IL.

Memories Timeline


  1. Light a CandleWe were proud to call Jason our friend. All the good times we had together at the State Fair roving the grounds in the cover of darkness still make me laugh. The number of times we could’ve tipped Sue Ann’s golf cart! Wowzers it’s a wonder we made it out alive with some of our shenanigans! Barn 25M holds special memories for me and I’m glad I was able to make them with such a great guy. Be at peace, my friend.

  2. Light a CandleOur deepest condolences, our heart goes out to you all, sending prayers and hugs for comfort. Bill & Lana Nance

  3. Thoughts and prayers are with you all. May holding the memories and each other close give comfort. Cari (Chappel) Outman

  4. It was a pleasure getting to know Jason over the past year or so. He was very respected by his team, his peers and me. He will be sorely missed by all of us. Our deepest sympathies to his family, friends, coworkers and all whose lives he touched.

  5. This young man was so full of life and fun, it breaks my heart he is gone. Jason dearly adored his girls. If you think he lit up over a brown swiss cow you should talk about his daughters! Jason brought so much fun and laughter to our family. Always called me “Mom”, Like many of the rest of you. My deepest sympathies to the girls and his mom, and sisters for their loss. We will never forget him!!

  6. Light a CandleJason was a very kind and thoughtful dairyman. He was willing to give of his time to the Brown Swiss Cattle Assn. and his input as a national board member will be greatly missed. Our prayers go out to his family as they grieve at this time and know that God has taken him home to rest. It was my privelage to work with him on the board.
