Jade R. Schoneberg

Jade Ryan Schoneberg was born May 10, 1977, in Denver, CO, to John and Suzanne (Zimmerman) Schoneberg. He grew up in the small town of Sutton, and attended Sutton Public Schools. A cowboy from the start, he knew from an early age what he wanted to do with his life. Trading horses became his passion when he made a profit on his first pony, sold at 6 years old. For the rest of his life he would love a good horse, a good horse sale, a good trade and the many lasting friendships made along the way. When not at a horse sale, his favorite place to be was at the barn working with his dad. He also worked in the ag industry, the last five years for Nutrien Ag Solutions.
