Jeremy Lee Yanez

August 26, 1987 ~ January 14, 2021 (age 33)


Jeremy Lee Yanez, age 33, “Waabishkii-wiiwidan” which means “White Teeth”, a member of the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe, and resident of St. Paul, MN passed away on January 14, 2021 at Region Hospital in St. Paul, MN.  Jeremy was born August 26, 1987 in Minneapolis, MN and was the son of Torivio Yanez, Sr. and Noreen Smith.

Jeremy loved to ride his bike all over the Twin Cities.  There wasn’t a spot he hadn’t been and would make it clear on how he’d gotten there and what trails and route he had taken.  He had a fascination for skyscrapers, particularly the Capella Tower in Minneapolis.  Jeremy insisted that was his building.  He loved listening to his favorite rap group, Bone Thugs -N- Harmony most of all the time while smoking Loud.  His charisma was unmatched by anyone and anyone who knew him could tell you the same.

He was proceeded in death by his father, Torivio Yanez, Sr.; sister, Celesta Yanez; brother, Robert Taylor; and grandmothers, Marlin Smith, and Kathrine Yanez.

Jeremy is survived by daughter, Maddison Brooklyn; mother, Noreen Smith; brothers, Torivio Yanez, Ruddy Yanez, John Robertson, and Daniel Robertson; sisters, Kristy Aldape, Marlin Yanez, and Kathrine Yanez.

Visitation for Jeremy will be on Saturday, January 23rd from 2-5 p.m.  Funeral services will be Sunday, January 24th at 3:00 p.m. all being held at the Onigum Community Center.  Burial will be in the Onigum Cemetery.  Pallbearers will be Shawn Griffin, James Yanez, John Robertson, Daniel Robertson, Todd Powell, Eddie Smith, and Brian Smith.
