Kurt John Olschner passed away March 22, 2021 after a battle with a rare form of leukemia. He was surrounded by his loving wife and children when he passed.

Kurt was born on April 20th, 1967 in Princeton, NJ to Paul and Carolyn Olschner. He lived in Belle Meade, NJ until the age of 5. He and his family then moved to Centennial Colorado where Kurt started kindergarten. He continued his schooling and graduated from Cherry Creek High School in 1985. He then attended the Art Institute of Colorado for 2 years.

In 1988 Kurt proudly enlisted in the U.S. Air Force Reserve. He faithfully served in Iraq in Desert Shield for three months in 1990-91. During the 11 years he was in the Reserve, he traveled for two weeks each year. He visited Korea, Japan, Italy, Hawaii, Alaska, and Germany. In 1992 Kurt moved to Blaine, Washington, where he studied photography. He enjoyed the change of scenery and found great places to hike in the area.

After about two and a half years in Blaine, he returned to Colorado and lived in Highlands Ranch. He worked at Gart Brothers Sporting Goods where he worked in the Photography Department selling and teaching photography. Later, he worked at Pentax for five years working in management and customer service. He met Hector who reached out and shared the gospel of Jesus with Kurt.

Kurt was a faithful, unwavering disciple of Jesus Christ. He studied the bible and was baptized on July 26th in 1998 proudly proclaiming Jesus is LORD. He was steadfast in his faith and professed his love for God until the end of his life.

Kurt had the opportunity to travel to the Philippines with Hope Worldwide. During his time there, he helped build houses for the Philippine community. He was able to serve and document his experience through his talented photography skills. He also got to travel to New Orleans to help with Hurricane Katrina Relief. Kurt was a lifelong servant to so many. He often served in secret and called it “Love Bombing.”

Kurt was a well-established business owner as a Professional Photographer serving his clients with integrity and a beautiful artistic eye. He finished his career at Columbine Heath Center in Fort Collins, CO. as an IT specialist, where he worked for 12 years.

Kurt and Amelia married in 2003. They bought their first house in Parker shortly after they were married. In 2008, God inspired Kurt and Amelia to move to Fort Collins, CO. to help serve the Fort Collins Christian Church. In 2011, they bought a house in Fort Collins and lived there for the next nine years. They were married for 17 years and have two beautiful children whom Kurt found great joy in.

Kurt and Amelia were deeply in love, grateful to serve and love God together and fulfilled many lifelong dreams together as a married couple. Kurt and Amelia were dedicated to the mission of Christ and were disciples of Jesus their entire marriage. The two of them together were eager to entertain others and live life to the Full. They both loved to host church parties for the marrieds ministry and used their house and resources to serve God and His people. They had many fun adventures together as a family. Their family: Kurt, Amelia, Katelyn, and CJ are known as “TEAM O” by close friends and family.

Kurt’s daughter Kathryn was born November 25th, 2007 in Littleton, CO. He was excited about having children because he thought it would better help him understand the heart of God. He was a proud stay at home dad for the first eight months of Katelyn life. His nickname for her was “Sweet Pea.” Katelyn loves music and is a deep thinker like her father Kurt.

Kurt’s son Cameron John was born on June 1st, 2010 in Loveland, CO. He was delighted to have a son! He loved Jeeps so much that he made sure to have his first name begin with the letter “C” so his nickname could be CJ. Cameron shares his dad’s middle name. Kurt loved reading books to Cameron and enjoyed fishing with him. They loved to learn with one another, tell jokes to each other, goof around and laugh together. One of Kurt’s favorite things of all, was to hear CJ laugh.

Kurt is survived by his mom, Carolyn Olschner, his brothers, Fred (Sue) and Eric, a sister, Lisa, two nephews, Rob and Tom, his wife Amelia Olschner and his two children, Kathryn Grace Olschner (13) and Cameron John Olschner (10).

He is surpassed in death by his father Paul Olschner who passed away April 3rd, 2020.

Kurt will be deeply missed by many but take heart and rejoice as he is in heaven now hearing the words he longed so much to hear "Well done good and faithful servant, here is the room I have prepared for you.”
