Jason Cleereman Age
Jason Cleereman was 54 years old.
Cleereman’s sister, Vanessa Maldonado, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Cleereman was a devoted husband and father of two. She said, “My brother was a very kind, loving, helpful man. He’s well-known at the courthouse and a lot of people around the east side, where we were raised, near where the incident happened. He was just a good man. He wanted to make the neighborhoods nice. He talked to everybody. He was amazing.”
She provided the outlet with more information about the incident. Cleereman was the passenger of the vehicle and his wife, Evanjelina, was driving, Maldonado said, and they came across a cyclist who was riding dangerously or erratically on the Holton Street Bridge. Cleereman’s sister said that his wife was nervous about the cyclist and was concerned that she might hit him. She added, “At some point there were words exchanged between this guy and my brother.”
The cyclist then came up to their vehicle, she explained, and punched Cleereman. The attorney then exited the vehicle, at which point the cyclist shot him in the head and escaped on a nearby bike path, according to Maldonado.
One of Cleereman’s friends, Pat Prabhu, spoke to WISN about the homicide:
It seems like it was just somebody who was in a rage, and Jason just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. And Jason was the kind of person who always wanted to right every wrong, and he felt something was wrong there. And he would get out and try and make it right. I guess that’s what he wanted to do, and you know, and this guy pulled out a gun and shot him in the head.
