Jasper was born in Frizzleville, Missouri, on August 25, 1939, to Richard and Mildred Miller.
He grew up in Gentryville, Missouri, and went to school there. He graduated from the Albany Missouri High School.
Jasper farmed in the Gentryville area until he married Shirley Marquerite Grace, and they made their home in Stanberry, Missouri. They were married on October 19, 1963, in Albany. He worked for Big 4 Hardware there.
In 1965, they welcomed their daughter, Debbie Lynn.
