JAMES “JIM” VELISHEK, age 49 of Waterville died on April 14, 2020 at his home.

Born on December 16, 1970 in Mankato, Minnesota, he was the son of Roger and Sheila (Olson) Velishek. Jim graduated from Waterville-Elysian High School in 1989 and Mankato State University in 1995. He worked at Mystic Lake Casino during and after his graduation from college for a few years. He then went on to work for Daikin in Owatonna. He was currently employed at Cybex in Owatonna since 2014. Jim loved deer hunting and was so happy when he shot one of his biggest bucks in the fall of 2019. His passion was fishing in both summer and winter in all the area lakes. He will be dearly missed.
