"Attitude Is Everything"
Dylan James Zuleger, age 21, died peacefully on Wednesday, June 5, 2013 at his home with his family at his side.

Dylan was born May 1, 1992 in Neenah to Jennifer Alice Jahnke. He was a 2010 Appleton North High School graduate and was attending Fox Valley Technical College in Woodworking Manufacturing Technology. Dylan enjoyed golf, disc golf, music, going to concerts and spending time with his family and friends. Dylan was a total gamer, a true certified Pokemon Master. Dylan was a kind soul with an amazing attitude. He brought a smile to everyone he met and had a great sense of humor. Dylan was the first to help anyone, stranger or friend. He's been and will remain an inspiration to all he's touched. He'd want you to always remember: "Attitude Is Everything".

Dylan, We loved you so much. Our visits to WI won't be the same without you there, but we have peace knowing that you are truly home now. You fought so hard, and we know that the true victory lies with you gaining eternal life in Heaven with your heavenly father and king.

Breathe Sometimes I feel it's all that I can do Pain so deep that I can hardly move Just keep my eyes completely fixed on You Lord take hold and pull me through this has been my "head mantra" since I lost my son, it is a pain like no other. Sometimes you feel like the next breath won't come, but if it does that is God's way of saying life will go on for you and he will keep you going just take that breath and wait on the next, sometimes that's all you can do and that is all you should expect out of yourself right now.


May Dylan James Zuleger RIP, this young had so much to live for and accomplish. Please let the consoling words found in God's Word massage your grief and pain. Jesus' whole-hearted concern for the weak was the same as his Father's feelings "Likewise it is not a desirable thing with my Father who is in Heaven for one of these little one's to perish. " Matthew 18:14. May Jesus' prayer in Matthew 6:10, as well be your firm hope for the future, "Let your Kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in Heaven, also upon Earth." Psalms 115:16; John 5:28,29; Psalms 37:10,11

Jennifer and Cheyenne You two are in my thoughts and prayers and even though I only got to meet Dylan once I will never forget it. He had a smile on his face and was laughing telling me and Cheyenne about his high school days. Love you both very much. He will be dearly missed by many and may he continue to watch over both of you. God bless Emily Roskom
