Jaedyn was someone who always told me if i needed someone to talk to he would listen, he always came to me when i was upset or sad. He always knew how to cheer up anyone, no matter if he knew them or not. He had the most kind heart, the biggest smile all the time. The most amazing personality. Always so happy, I went to an old friends house 2 days before the wreck.. He gave me a big hug and told me he missed me, we had a short conversation but i knew he was enjoying life and where he was in life. He’s so strong and such an amazing man.
I never took any photos with him but my favorite one i ever took, we went to first fridays, my first fridays ever and we walked and we stayed for hours and all hung out, Jake, Eli, Jaedyn and i, we had a blast and ill never forget that.
I found a video a few weeks ago, Jaedyn, Jake and i all were wearing the same pants, Jaedyns were white, Jake & i’s were black.
The first time i ever met Jaedyn i went to Olathe North’s homecoming, freshman year. I felt left out because i was an Olathe South student, Jaedyn did everything he could to include me in the group, every since then jaedyn was someone i always trusted with my secrets and the one person who seemed to care about my problems when he didnt have to. Such a beautiful heart.
Rest easy, You will be missed everyday💜

To the friends and Family of Jaedyn Wretling,

I extend to you my deepest condolences on behalf of the Greater Kansas City Army Recruiting Company. Though I served as his commanding officer for only a short time, his energy and his passion were amplified in all he did and I was honored to serve with him. I was saddened to hear of his loss and I pray that the Lord helps you find comfort during this time of grief.

First Team!

Best regards,
CPT Cody E. Wellman

Oh Jaedyn, where do i begin. I know I never ever wanted to have to write this for any of my boys. I remember the first time I met you. Hunter brought you home after a dance at MT and in about 10 minutes I knew your life story and i knew you were an amazing kid. I knew Hunter would never have a more loyal friend in the world. I thank you for being his brother. You, Eli and Nick were always around. Im gonna miss you! I really dont know how we will get over you. But i do know we will never forget or stop loving you. Thank you for all the love you brought into the Orth home. Miss you jaedyn.

You were a valuable member of our Army Team. This photo is the day you committed to becoming a Soldier and you fulfilled that commitment. I’ll never forget your “Swagger” and the energy you brought where every you went.

I was blessed to be Jaedyn’s leader during his time in my squad. When he first came to my Squad I knew that he had some great potential, and that he was hungry to prove what he was made of. The beat memories I have with this young man was in Fort bliss, TX. He slept on the bunk above me, and always had something that he was eating, and I swear he was the only person I’ve ever known to eat 2-3 MRE’s a day of his own free will, and he was always looking for an open MRE box to rummage through. It was like no matter what he could never get enough to eat no matter how much or little he ate. He was always so passionate about life and the many possibilities that he had in front of him, it was an honor and a pleasure to have him as part of my family for the time that we had him with us.

I met Jaedyn when he was so little-he attended the daycare where I was the Director. I remember like it was yesterday his glowing personality, his laugh and smile. He was pretty ornery and he and I spent a lot of time together. I think he really just enjoyed hanging out with me in the office! I loved that he wouldn't leave without giving me a hug-and from reading other people's memories that never changed. Lizz, Markayla and Charles I am so sorry for your loss. Jaedyn grew up into an amazing young man. He has touched so many lives in his short time of being here-I know for a fact how much he touched mine.

I only knew Jaedyn for a few days before he passed. Even though they were short, I don't regret them. He was so nice and caring. I added him on snapchat and from there we barely talked. But from what I saw from his snaps were amazing. Hanging out with friends, and the way he treated them was remarkable. I arranged plans to hang out with him on Wednesday but it too late. I regret not making plans earlier. But i'm just glad that I got to know him. He was a son, a grandson, a soldier, and a good friend. I hope that he was satisfied with the life he lived, and I hope and pray that his family and close friends are doing alright <3

I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know Jaedyn and his mother during his middle school years at Mission Trail. Up until 8th grade my son had never played football but he decided to go out for the team. He was nervous because the other boys had way more experience with the sport than he did. It didn't take long for me to figure out who Jaedyn Wretling was since he was clearly the best player on that team. Jaedyn was not only an excellent athlete, he was an awesome human being! Jaedyn welcomed my son on the team and encouraged him to be the best player he could be even though he was new to the sport. He didn't judge him for what he hadn't done but he encouraged him for what he could do. He didn't have to do that but he did because he was Jaedyn. When I met his mother on the sidelines I figured out right away why Jaedyn was such a great kid. Jaedyn Wretling was a well raised, mild mannered, kind, compassionate, polite, funny, humble leader. He will definitely live on in my memory of what a great young man he was. God Bless Jaedyn Wretling and his family in this extremely difficult time.

Jaedyn was a student in my chemistry class at Olathe North. He was such a charming young man. So full of life and so interested in everything going on around him. And passionate about life. I sure enjoyed having him in my class for a year and all of his stops in my room the next year after just to check in and say hi. What a wonderful young man. My condolences for your loss, may you be comforted by your memories of him.
