Joseph M. "Yuz" Yeselavage, 49, died Wednesday at his residence in Jessup.

Born in Scranton on Nov. 13, 1964, son of the late Joseph and Anastasia Malinosky Yeselavage, he was a lifelong Jessup resident. He graduated from Valley View High School, class of 1982, and was enrolled in the Argosy Online University, pursuing a degree in business administration. He began his employment with Tommie's Market in Eynon. He then worked at WEA/Cinram for many years, and had currently worked at Mini-Golf in Jessup. He was a member of the former St. Michael's Church in Jessup, the Carbino Club and the GCU, and held a combined membership of 24 years with the Jessup Hose Company 1 and 2.

"Yuz" was an avid golfer who got his nickname, "72," from his best round at Elkview Country Club. He enjoyed playing the lottery and always said, "You can't win, if you don't play!" He loved the Washington Redskins, Boston Red Sox and most of all the Valley View Cougars football team.

He is survived by his wife, Lee Ann Zielinski Yeselavage, Jessup; his sister, Mary Beth Turner; his two nieces, Kelsey and Cait1yn Turner; and a great-nephew, Elijah Bryce Pitts, all of Yuma, Ariz.; a goddaughter, Justice Zielinski; aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
