Steven Michael Yeisley, 38, of Rockville, MD, passed away on Monday, January 8, 2018 at 4:15AM at Shady Grove Adventist Hospital in Rockville.  He was born on January 12, 1979 in Washington, DC, to Richard and Valerie Yeisley.

Steve was a beloved history teacher, first at Neelsville Middle School in Germantown, MD, and then at Northwood High School in Silver Spring, MD.  His students would recount how he made history come alive, but more importantly, how much he cared about each of them individually and in making their lives better.  Steve truly impacted the lives of so many people in Montgomery County over the past 17 years.

He married his true love, Jennifer Marie on July 11, 2011, in Frederick, MD. Everyone who came in touch with Steve noted how outgoing, caring, and genuine he was.  He was an avid sports fan and enjoyed traveling across the US, as over the last 8 years he visited nearly every Major League Baseball stadium as well as numerous beaches on summer vacations in Hawaii and Florida.  He passionately rooted for his local teams, especially the Redskins and the Nationals (never missing an opening day), and shared his joy of history, sports, craft beer and politics with all.

Steve is survived by his wife, Jen; his parents; sister Karen Yeisley Quispe and her husband Eddy; brother Gary and his wife Emily; nephew Nathan Yeisley; niece Caroline Quispe; great aunt Ruth Campbell; aunts and uncles Joseph and Nadine Baskerville, Norman and Gail Yeisley Diefenderfer, Warren Yeisley, and Dorothy Yeisley; mother-in-law Beth Palmer; father-in-law Michael Palmer and his wife Susan; brothers-in-law Steven, David and James Palmer.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Central Scholarship or to Compassion International.

We will always carry his memory in our hearts.
