Jess Morgan Brost

February 2, 1961 — March 15, 2024


Jess Morgan Brost, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, and friend to many, passed away on March 15, 2024, at St. Vincent's Hospital in Billings, MT at the age of 63. Born on February 2, 1961 to Herman and Kay Brost, Jess led a remarkable life filled with dedication to his family and passion for his work.

Jess was a man of many talents and interests. He excelled in mathematics to the point where even NASA considered recruiting him, but Jess's heart was always with his cows and ranching. His career took him from the oilfields of Ridge, MT to Black Thunder Mine near Upton, WY and back again to Ridge, where he worked as an oil field pumper, roustabout worker, and finally as a dozer operator at MTI.  In addition to his successful career in the oil industry and ranching, Jess was also an accomplished handyman and known as “Mr. Fix-It” amongst family and friends. His hobbies included hunting, fishing, arrowhead hunting, golfing and his great love of music and singing, but above all else, Jess found true joy in taking care of his cows - except for #20, his arch nemesis.

Jess's proudest accomplishments include marrying Linda Kuhbacher in 1987 at St. Mathew’s Catholic Church in Gillette, WY.  Together they raised four children: Kaleb [Katie] Brost, Jessica Brost, Eli Brost, and Judd [Ali] Brost.  Each child brought immense joy into Jess’ life as his family meant everything to him.

He was predeceased by his father Herman Brost in 2004 and every "crazy-eyed cow" whoever tested Jess’ patience. He is survived by his loving wife Linda Brost; children Kaleb [Katie], Jessica, Eli, Judd [Ali]; granddaughters Grace and Hannah Brost, as well as Carter Maye Brost; mother Kay Brost; sisters Johanna Wills, Suze Bayne, Sally Sawyer; brother Jake Brost, his second family the Iossi’s; along with a host of other relatives and friends whose lives were touched by Jess' kindness.

A memorial service to honor Jess' life will be held on Noon April 6, 2024 at CAM-PLEX Multi-Event Facilities- Heritage Center in Gillette, Wyoming. Jess will be deeply missed but never forgotten for the love he shared with those around him and the legacy of hard work he leaves behind.
