Yesenia was born to Michael Gasca Sr. and Angelita Linda Garnica - Gasca on June 17, 2002. Being the middle child, she was surrounded by love from her four siblings. Sisters Mariaelena “Nena” and Serenity and brothers Albert and Michael Jr. Sharing a strong and special bond, the five siblings often made videos with one another. For Yesenia, her greatest joy was to be around family and seeing all the people who meant so much to her. She enjoyed hanging out with cousins and friends and loved music, dancing, singing and animals, especially their dog, “Lola”. Recently, Yesenia graduated from Grizzly Youth Academy. This accomplishment was her greatest which made her very proud of herself.
Yesenia will be tremendously missed but never forgotten by her loved ones, friends and family. Yesenia touched many hearts by who she was and what she did. Many looked up to her and appreciated her for just being herself. She brought smiles, laughter and joy to those who needed it and showed how much she cared and how genuine she truly felt about their feelings.
