Jarvis Jacob Madlung, age 49 of Hudson, Wisconsin passed away suddenly on January 21, 2022 at Western Wisconsin Health in Baldwin, Wisconsin, five months short of his 50th birthday. Jarvis and his twin brother, Jason were born June 22, 1972, at the hospital in Amery, Wisconsin to Clayton and Marina (Benitez) Madlung. They were later joined by sister, Tania. Jarvis was baptized at Our Saviors Lutheran Church in Amery, and confirmed at Bethel Lutheran Church in Hudson. He attended school in Clayton, Wisconsin, then Amery, and graduated from Hudson High School with the class of 1990. After high school, Jarvis attended the University of Wisconsin-River Falls and graduated with an environmental engineering degree in 1995. He was united in marriage to Cindy Weyker, and through this union, was blessed with a daughter, Sarah Marie. Jarvis worked various jobs, including Anderson Windows. He was employed at Eco Lab at the time of his passing.


Jarvis loved motor vehicles, but was especially fond of Jeeps, Audi sedans, 4-wheel drive pickups, and a Polaris 4-wheel ATV. He was a member of the St. Croix Valley Swamp Stompers and enjoyed participating in car shows with his prized 1984 Jeep CJ7 that he owned since shortly after graduating high school.

Jarvis's Tribute Wall

Tributes (8):

Please note: if you just submitted a tribute, it is pending approval.
    • It was truly the most beautiful and touching and sad day Friday January 28th as we all gathered to honor my lovely brother. It was such a tribute to who he was as a person, deep down to his soul. He would always be there to help and with a smile on his face. He was one of the easiest people to ever hang out with. Thank you to everyone who came to honor him. May we all try to be a little more like him with unquestioning kindness, helpfulness, and a smile. Rest In Peace brother. Until we meet again. ❤️❤️❤️

    • Can’t believe it! Jarvis lived across the street from us on 117th Ave for 20 years and was always the happy, smiling picture of health. We are 29 years his senior and when we got large snowfalls he came to our house with his ATV with snow plow attached and cleaned our 200 foot driveway and asked nothing in return. That was the kind of guy he was. He will be greatly missed. Our sincere condolences to his girl friend, brother, Cindy, Sarah and especially his mom. May God be with you all.

    • I cannot say anything more than everyone else.. what a great guy that will be terribly missed. Anytime I would run into Jarvis, he always had a smile on his face & was so genuinely pleased to say hi & catch up. I’m sure I can speak for the entire Class of ‘90 when I say, we will miss Jarvis & he will be remembered always. My deepest condolences.

    • One of my very dear friends, Jarvis will be greatly missed by his many friends and family. So many memories, but I’ll share a few that I think really represent who Jarvis was as a person.

      If I mentioned that I’d be back in the area, he would always do something like “…let me come pick you up”. Inevitably, he would show up in the Jeep with that genuine smile and provide a full update on the local stories, along with what band he was into lately. One update always at the top of the list was Sara and how she was doing. He loved her with all his heart.

      Another is my sister Cheri had just learned to drive and had I think slide off the road or something in North Hudson. As she put it, not more than a few minutes went by and here pulls up Jarvis recognizing her car and there to immediately help. Between Jarvis and Jason, my sister used to say “It’s like I have two extra brothers in town.”

      A great friend that will be missed by our entire family.

    • Words cannot express the sadness felt by a huge part of this community. Jarvis would help anyone at anytime. Mr. Reliable. Sara…your dad loved you with all his heart. Nobody can replace your dad but there is a very capable group of his friends that will do anything for you.

    • One of the best friends a person could ask for ! always there for you anytime you asked and even if you didn’t ask and he knew you were working on a project and he knew about it ( especially a car or truck) he would just stop by to see if he could help. I am going to miss him so very much! My heart goes out to his family, Shannon and his friends, he will be greatly missed!

    • Jarvis was such a wonderful guy and was so extremely thoughtful. If I was standing alone at a car show while my husband was talking shop he would always come over and keep me company. Whenever me and my husband had a fire or party he was always over hanging out. On January 21st the world lost a wonderful man and he will be missed by so many! My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and his daughter that he always spoke so highly of
