Jaedon D. Bain (2002-2019)
Jaedon D. Bain, 17, of Kenosha passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, June 29, 2019, after losing a long-standing battle with depression. Jaedon was born on March 31, 2002 in Kenosha to David and Michelle (Kuester) Bain. He attended KTEC and Harborside Academy, where he was preparing to enter his senior year. Jaedon had a love of books and a quest for knowledge from a very early age, and loved to memorize facts and share them with others. Growing up, he tried his hand at every sport, from soccer to baseball, lacrosse to football, but he abandoned them all when he found his true calling in the theater.
He performed in his first show through Children’s Theater Academy when he was in first grade, and continued with them until he was in middle school. Almost every summer from grade school through middle school he also participated in KUSD’s summer theater program, KYPAC. Upon entering high school, he was very active in the theater at all of the area schools, and a member of the International Thespian Society. He even gained a new perspective off-stage by stage managing a few shows instead of acting in them. He became involved in community theater at The Rhode, and the Lakeside Players became his second family. He loved supporting theater even when he wasn’t performing and enjoyed attending shows with his mom. His dream was to pursue a BFA-Acting from UW-Stevens Point upon graduating from high school. Outside of theater, Jaedon was a very dedicated student who was involved in National Honor Society, Excel Club, and was committed to making the world a better place. He filled his spare time by working at Tinseltown, a job that he truly loved.
Jaedon will be remembered for his kind heart, gentle soul, keen wit, great sense of humor, and the ability to break out in song and dance at any given moment!
He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Brian Kuester.
Jaedon is survived by his mother, Michelle Bain and her friend, Syed “Prince” Haque; his father, David Bain; three siblings, Tristan, Ethan and Madelyn Bain; two aunts, Debbie (Bryan) Turgeon and Becky (David) Warren; his uncle, Michael Kuester; his paternal grandparents, Larry and Janice Bain; his maternal grandmother, Nancy Kuester as well as other family and many, many friends.
