Jaelen Miguel Yracheta, 18, was born to this earthly world on July 8th 2004 in Milwaukee, WI and unexpectedly passed on to his afterlife December 29th, 2022. He is survived by his loving parents Orlando Yracheta (Bianca Robertson) and Shannon Tadych (Mark Clements), all of which miss him immensely. Jaelen loved being a brother and is further survived by his siblings Antonio, Shomari, Jada and Lauryn. Jaelen truly loved life and lived it in an enthusiastic manner, surrounding himself with his family and closest friends always. His smile and perfectly timed sense of humor touched the hearts of all he encountered.
Jaelen prioritized pursuing his dreams through education. He had graduated from South Milwaukee High School in June 2022 and was enrolled in the Master Electrician program at MATC by September. Jaelen enjoyed school, he had a promising future as an electrician and was on course to achieve this. Inspired by trips to Puerto Rico and recently Atlanta, he talked often about traveling and looked forward to seeing more of this world. He had big dreams and the motivation to make everything possible.
Jaelen had a passion for life that included many hobbies and interests. He was a sneaker fanatic that took meticulous care of his personal shoe collection. From Jordans to UGGs, he was always on the lookout to add another pair to his closet. Jaelen enjoyed various sports and had competed in youth baseball and basketball teams when he was younger. Most recently, he loved to spend hours playing NBA2K with his friends on PlayStation. His favorite professional teams to watch were the Milwaukee Bucks, the Green Bay Packers and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Whether driving around listening to music with his friends or finding his way to various family gatherings, Jaelen made a point to be around those he loved as often as possible, including his beloved cousin Ava Allen in their final moments.
Jaelen is survived by his paternal grandfather Michael Yracheta, paternal grandmother Carmen Maldonado and maternal grandparents John & Aurelia (Dolly) Tadych. He was also a nephew and a cousin to so many other family members, many of which who deserve mention but far too many to list in entirety. Jaelen is further survived by his numerous friends and family friends.
The loss that Jaelen’s untimely, and far too soon, departure has left on this world and everyone who knew him, is immeasurable. He was destined for great things and put himself on the trajectory to get there. Jaelen will be missed and forever in the hearts of those who loved him for the caring, beautiful soul he was. Although there are no appropriate words to heal those in grieving, we can find solace in knowing that “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit” Psalm 34:18. Until we meet again our beloved Jaelen.
