He entered heaven on September 8, 2022, just days shy of his 74th birthday, after a long battle with Parkinson’s Disease and Parkinson’s Dementia. His family was his pride and joy. He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Donna Smith Causey; daughters, Jenny Stowell and husband, Jared, Katie Burgess and husband, Chad; and his son, Jeremy Causey and wife, Christina; four grandsons, Camon Stowell, Carson Burgess, Caleb Burgess, and Langston Causey; future granddaughter Lindyn Causey.

Jere is preceded in death by his mother and father, Betty and Jack Causey; and father-in-law, Don Smith.
Growing up in Bossier City, he graduated in the second graduating class at Airline High School. He attended LSU Baton Rouge while serving in the Army National Guard. Jere worked many years as a sales representative in the beauty and barber industry. For the last 14 years, he was employed as a Petroleum Landman. He served on the Board of Directors of the Ark-La-Tex Association of Petroleum Landmen. He loved most the gathering of his family at sporting events or spending time at the family camp. Most people will remember Jere's smiling face and his many jokes or pranks.
