Matt Zelasney Obituary, Death – Matt Zelasney was 26 years old and a resident of Council Bluffs when he passed away on August 12, 2022. His passing occurred on that date. In Omaha, Nebraska, on October 27th, 1995, Jeffrey and Denise (Woods) Dehaai were overjoyed to announce the arrival of their son Hunter into the world. He started working for his grandparents at their hot dog stand known as The Dog House” when he was just nine years old.
The stand was located in Bayliss Park and the surrounding area. He was the Kitchen Manager at both Jonesy’s Southside and Jonesy’s Corner right up until very recently. His last day on the job was very recently. Hunter was a young man with a carefree spirit, but he had the soul of an old man, and he valued spending time with people who were significantly older than he was. Despite his age, he had the wisdom of an old man. It was well known that he was fairly kind to the people who resided in the Bayliss Park area.
This was due to the fact that he genuinely cared about people. His grandfathers, Tom Fennell in 2012 and Jerry Dehaai in 2003, as well as his great-grandparents, Shirley and Charlie Jones, with whom Hunter had a very close relationship, and his great-grandma, Wanda Ellerbeck, all passed away before Hunter did. Additionally, his grandparents, Joe and Ruthie Larsen, as well as his great-grandmother, Wanda Ellerbeck, also passed away.
