Curt Jahn passed away on Saturday, April 27, 2013, following an 18-month battle with cancer.
Curt was born the son of Paul Giering and Margaret Siebecker Giering on May 10, 1943. He was raised by Margaret and Albert Jahn.
Curt attended and graduated from Baraboo Public Schools, graduating in 1961. He attended Naval ROTC and the University of Wisconsin, and in 1966 received a Bachelor of Business Administration degree. He was commissioned an Ensign in the U.S. Navy and served as a Naval Aviator.
Following their marriage in 1976, Curt and his wife, Sandy, jointly led and grew the company. When they sold the company in 2002, Capitol was operating in excess of 800,000-square-feet of warehouse space and a substantial number of over-the-road trucks.
Curt enjoyed first and most deeply, the love and affection of his wife of 37 years, Sandy. He thrived on the company of his children and grandchildren and on their achievements, successes and happiness. Curt and Sandy enjoyed traveling across the country and around the world with family and friends.
Curt is remembered for his ready smile for friends, family, visitors and employees, a creativity and tenacity in both his love for his family and friends, and in business pursuits and for being a very warm, loving and generous person, and a formidable foe to business and government adversaries.
Curt is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Sandy; his children, Natalie (Steve) Hellenbrand, Paul (Tammy) Tuite, Nikki (Jake) Nicholson, and Tori Jahn; five his grandchildren; his mother-in-law, Ruth Dalton; his sisters, Lynn (David) Caldwell, Pam Gossman, and Paula (Bob) Trotter; and other relatives, friends, and business partners.
A funeral service was held Saturday, May 4, 2013, at Ryan Funeral Home, Madison, Wisc. Entombment followed at Roselawn Memorial Park.
