Johnathon Casimir Stec


Johnathon Casimir Stec, passed away at the age of 42, on Tuesday, May 16, 2023, at Bolingbrook Hospital, surrounded by the love of his family.  Johnathon was born on November 23, 1980, the son of Casimir and Linda (nee Korabik) Stec.  He was born in Berwyn, IL and grew up in Cicero and moved to Plainfield, where he was a graduate of Plainfield Central High School and attended DeVry University. He was currently a Manager with Vita Bella.


Johnathon was one of the friendliest people you could meet, and he touched so many lives. He was funny and quick witted like his father. Johnathon was a huge sports fan; he loved the Chicago Bears and the Cubs.  He always knew the stats on any team as well as individual players.  Johnathon enjoyed playing disc golf and bags with family and friends, and has been known to be an exceptional cook.  He loved his family more than anything and would do anything for them. Johnathon will be missed by all who knew him.


Johnathon is survived by his mother, Linda R. Stec; sister, Patricia Magaña; two nieces, Eleni (Jason) Regino and Isabela Magaña; nephew Alex Magaña, Jr.; great-nephew, Grayson; great-niece, Charlotte; paternal grandfather, Processo “Joe” Jaramillo; and his fiancés children, Alexis Ordaz and Ruben Ordaz III; and his devoted canine companion, “Wrigley”.  Numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins also survive.


He is preceded by his father, Casimir John Stec; and his fiancé, Melanie Tagliere.
