Adam Craig Jenisch

Adam Craig Jenisch of Troy, NH (previously of Swanzey, NH) passed away on July 5, 2020 from declining health from after a hypertensive stroke two years ago.
He was born on November 14, 1985 in Peterborough, NH to Leslie L. (Skudera) Jenisch and Brian R. Jenisch of Swanzey. He attended Swanzey schools and worked 14 years for Chrysler in Keene, and was manager of Buff N’ Shine there.
He enjoyed baseball and especially the 12 year old Swanzey all-star baseball team he played for, hitting numerous homeruns. He was a huge Patriots fan. He loved all outdoor activities, hunting, riding his 4-wheeler in the woods, and when he first got it, around in circles in the yard - even though he wasn’t supposed to. Adam enjoyed spending time in his yard and watching the birds. His true passion was fishing and he was a great fisherman. His favorite fishing spot was Lake Champlain.
He had a great sense of humor, keen wit, and his own way of enjoying simple things. He could put a smile on anyone’s face. Adam was a gentle soul with a big heart. He had recently told his family, “I like helping people out.” He loved visiting with his family and friends. He will be missed by his two cats: Mr. Kitty and Missy, who he was devoted to.

I send my deepest sympathies to Adam's family, he was a great friend and always had my back, even when we didn't agree on everything. I have lots of fond memories of working together and hanging out, he was always laughing and joking around, and was always good about helping out, no matter what the weather or situation. He was a true original and as solid as they come, I will miss him deeply.

Dear Brian, Leslie, Carl and Amy, My thoughts are with you all at this difficult time. I have fond memories of Adam both at school and at work when he took good care of our cars and was always so helpful. I'm sending our condolences all the way from Arizona. I send my deepest sympathy.
