Jason Melvin Niebuhr, age 39, of Wells, died Friday, August 16, 2019. A funeral service will be held Friday, August 23, 2019 at 2:00 PM at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Wells with Pastors Mary Iverson and Kenneth Haack officiating. Visitation will be Thursday, August 22, 2019 at 4 to 7 PM at Bruss-Heitner Funeral Home in Wells, MN and one hour prior to the service at church. Interment will be in Rosehill Cemetery in Wells, MN. Bruss-Heitner Funeral Home is assisting the family. Please leave online condolences at www.brussheitner.com. THE FAMILY PREFERS MEMORIALS ONLY PLEASE. Thank you for your understanding.

Jason was born June 5, 1980 in Wells, MN, the son of Lyle and Becky (Eastvold) Niebuhr. He grew up as the fifth generation on the family farm southeast of Wells. Jason graduated from United South Central, the Class of 1998 and South Central Technical College. Jason was four months old when he was diagnosed with retinoblastoma and by age 2 he was completely blind. Jason wasn't afraid to try anything. His mechanical skills started when he took his toys apart, learned how to drive a minibike at the age of ten and helped his parents on the farm every way he could. Jason enjoyed restoring his tractor, a 1946 B John Deere, which had been his grandpa Melvin's. He was always very curious, independent and a great leader. Jason was proud of his Wells heritage and wanted Wells to thrive. He owned and operated Wells Computer and Electronics for 16 years. He was a supporter of the community and an active member and leader in many Wells area organizations including the Wells Rifle Club, Flying Club, Lions, Jaycees, Farming of Yesteryear, USC Boosters, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church committees, Promise Keepers, Pheasants Forever and Wells Chamber of Commerce. Jason had a great sense of humor and loved helping people. His motto was "Nothing gets by the blind guy."

Jason is survived by his mother Becky Niebuhr of Wells, MN; many aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and 4 extra special children who were very dear to his heart: Milana, Calin, Amara and Colton Whitcomb.

Jason was preceded in death by his father Lyle, grandparents, aunt Janet in infancy and aunt and uncles Cindy (Curtis) Whitcomb, Kent Niebuhr, Gary Broviak.
