Austin M. Jeche

Austin M. Jeche, age 32, formerly of Beaver Dam, died on June 20, 2016 at Meritor Hospital in Madison.

The visitation will be at Koepsell-Murray Funeral Home in Beaver Dam on Saturday, June 25, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon. The funeral service will follow at the funeral home with Fr. Mike Erwin officiating.

Austin Matthew Jeche was born on June 6, 1984 in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin to Steven Jeche and Michelle Hammond. He grew up in Beaver Dam and was a 2001 graduate of Beaver Dam High School. As a teenager, Austin got his first job working as a server at Benvenuto’s. He developed a passion for cooking and that became his career of choice in the years that followed. Austin transferred to Madison where he was the kitchen manager for a number of years and most recently he was a chef at Oak Park Place in Madison. He loved cook outs with friends, golfing and bike rides. Austin loved and admired his dogs. He had a zest for life and although our hearts are heavy that he is gone, his organs were donated to give quality of life back to many others.

Survivors are his parents, Michelle (Joe) Disabato of Mayville and Steve (Laurie) Jeche of Beaver Dam; brothers and sisters, Branden Jeche of Horicon, Taylor Jeche of Beaver Dam, Alexander Jeche of La Crosse, Joe Disabato of Fond du Lac, and Michelle Disabato of Waupun; grandparents, Richard and Barba Hammond of Coconut Creek, FL, Richard and Carol VandeZande of Beaver Dam, Arnold and Betty Wodill of Beaver Dam, and Doris Jeche of Beaver Dam; girlfriend, Amanda Bender of Madison; numerous aunts and uncles; other relatives; and many friends. He was preceded in death by his grandpa, Dennis Jeche; an aunt, Dawn Jeche; and uncles, William Leander and Richard Wodill.

The family wishes to thank the staff at UnityPoint Health-Meritor in Madison for the exceptional care that was given to Austin.

The Koepsell-Murray Funeral Home in Beaver Dam is caring for the family. To leave online condolences, or for directions and other information, please visit our website at www.KoepsellFH.com
