Obituary for Wenceslaus Emmanuel Jarnesky Jr.

Wenceslaus Emmanuel Jarnesky, Jr., 60, our Ulua King, of Pukalani was born on May 7, 1961 and passed on to catch that 200lb ulua in the sky on January 26, 2022.

In his spare time away from King Kekaulike High School, where he spent 23 years as a custodian, he was known as Mr. Green Thumb. He would plant and garden and he planted everything from sweet potato to lettuce and cabbage. Everything that Wence planted was cared for and grew to not only enormous size but full of flavor as well. He had an amazing ability to fix anything with a motor, from weed eaters, lawn mowers, chainsaws, to cars. He also had an amazing ability to lure large fish from the ocean. He studied the wind, ocean current, and moon conditions and was able to tell you what type of fish there would be and where. He loved to take his hand made kite and pole and set it out to the North Shore, to try and catch his elusive 200Ib ulua. He was very kind and always willing to help anybody in any way he could.

He is survived by his companion Tina Corniel of 29 years, his daughter Ocean (Lopaka) Kapoi, grandchildren, Arie-anna, Dane, Keaka, Rea-anna. He is also survived by his mom Janet Fernandez, his brother Joey (Chelsea) Fernandez, nieces, Shae-la (Dominic), Lilly Ann and Esmee Ann, and nephews, Joey Jr, Colby and Azriel. Wence will be missed most by his little four-legged Princess, who laid by his side until his very last breath.

He is predeceased by his father Wenceslaus Jarnesky, Sr.; brothers, Cyrus Jarnesky and Aaron Jarnesky and his furry companion Peewee.

He carried the title of Boyfriend, Dad, Son, Brother, Nephew, Cousin, and Awesome Friend.

Services will be held on Thursday, February 10, 2022 at Norman's Mortuary, Wailuku. Public visitation will begin at 9am; service will be at 11am and final visitations will continue to 12:30pm. Burial at Valley Isle Memorial Park in Haiku to follow at 2pm.
