Jeffrey Tyler Muehring
Received into Heaven Saturday, 27 October 2018.
Born 1969 to Gene Howard Muehring and Judy Dendy Muehring.
Loving father, faithful husband, kindhearted son, beloved brother, generous uncle, loyal friend, wise mentor, dedicated leader, innovator, strategist, builder and craftsman, lover of languages, missionary, spiritual leader, lover and follower of the Lord.
Jeff took part in the Adventures in Missions training program in Lubbock and spent 27 months as a missionary in Yugoslavia. He received a Liberal Arts BA from LCU and Computer Science MD from TTU. Jeff joined RiskMetrics in 2000 where he and his wife, Trina, found their dream jobs working together on the frontiers of technology. RiskMetrics pioneered cloud-based financial risk management, where Jeff led the platform architecture and development. After the company sold in 2010, Jeff and Ken Parker left to co-found NextThought LLC in 2011, an innovative education technology company based in Norman, Oklahoma. He viewed each employee as a person first, an employee second, and worked diligently to make NextThought a place where innovation and creativity flourish, people thrive, lifelong friends are made, and technology is advanced.
He considered his greatest success and joy his wife Trina and son Jasper. He loved both fiercely and always found time to dedicate to them. He taught Jasper lessons and strategies in video games, school work, sports, world history, and matters of the heart. He enjoyed supporting Jasper’s beloved school Terra Verde. Jeff’s deep and profound faith and belief in God was unshakable throughout his life. His devotion to knowledge, truth, love, but especially his understanding of God’s heart was what drew people to want to spend time with him.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Judy Muehring, in 1996. He is survived by his wife, Trina Stewart Muehring, and his son, Jasper Muehring; his father Gene Muehring and wife Karel; his sister, Deanna Muehring; mother-in-law Dot Stewart; brother-in-law, Kevin Stewart and wife Monica; brother in law, Brent Stewart and wife Patti; sister-in-law, Cherie Sherwood and husband Ron; ten nephews and nieces (Stephen Stewart and wife Vanessa; Jeremiah Sherwood; Joshua Sherwood; Joseph Sherwood and wife Evelyn; Jacob Sherwood and wife Michelle; Ethan Stewart; Allyson Stewart; Ashley Stewart; Chase Stewart; and Nikki Richburg and husband Chris); step-sister Shannon Wilkinson and husband Nathan; step-brother Price Fowler and wife Stephanie; and many wonderful aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Jeff continues to live--in our hearts, in his legacy, in wonderful memories, and in spirit. This isn’t goodbye, but a brief pause, before we will all be reunited again.
