Jill A. Rudolph

Jill (Casler) Rudolph, 52, passed away December 20, 2018 in her home.

Jill was born March 4, 1966 to Wally and Donna Casler amidst the worst blizzard in North Dakota history. While snow drifted to over 20 feet and 125,00 head of livestock perished, Jill entered into this world with her blazing red hair.

Born in raised in Fargo, ND, Jill attended Fargo North High School and graduated from University of North Dakota with a BS in Business. Jill hired with Osco Drug subsequent to college and resided in Billings, MT, Bismarck, ND and Overland Park, KS.

Returning to Fargo, Jill married Steven Rudolph. They had three children, Allison, Abby and Jack.

Jill began her career in medical sales when she hired on with Med-Line, where she sold everything from Band-aids to hospital beds. She was soon employed by Space Labs, then Johnson & Johnson, and finally Medtronic. Jill not only sold the cutting edge products of Medtronic to hospitals but was also known to sit in with surgeons to ensure that new products were properly implanted into patients. As a result of both extraordinary personality and ability, Jill rose in position steadily, managing sales teams from several divisions over the years.

Jill was blessed with the love and enjoyment of family, whether it was pulling her kids on the tube at the lake cabin, celebrating Christmas at home, or traveling on vacation with family. She enjoyed the further blessing of close and loyal friendships developed over the years, especially those formed during high school and college. She will be missed by the many who loved her for the wonderful individual she was.

Jill is survived by her mother, Donna (Mills) Schatz; children, Allison and Jack; brother, Craig Casler; loving nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, and special friend Jeff Kraemer.

Jill was preceded in death by her father, Wallace Casler and daughter, Abby Rudoplph.
