Jarold's Legacy

An entrepreneurial spirit lives on through the Matlock founders

In the tapestry of life, some threads are woven with resilience, inspiration, and an indomitable spirit. Such is the story of Jarold Sedlacek, the beacon of strength and inspiration behind Matlock, founded by his children, Joelle and John. Jarold’s journey is a poignant narrative of struggle, resilience, and the enduring power of the human spirit, a story that continues to shape and inspire the ethos of Matlock.

Jarold, an entrepreneur with a zest for life and a passion for innovation, was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS), a group of cancers characterized by the inability of immature blood cells in the bone marrow to mature into healthy blood cells. The diagnosis was a storm cloud in the vibrant sky of Jarold’s life, but his spirit remained unbroken. Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) offered a beacon of hope, a chance to replace the unhealthy blood-forming cells, potentially curing or delaying the relapse of MDS.

However, life had another trial in store for Jarold. Post-transplant, he developed Graft versus Host Disease (GvHD), a systemic disorder where the graft immune cells recognize the host as foreign and attack the recipient body cells. It was a battle against time and fate, a journey through uncharted waters of pain and hope.

Jarold’s entrepreneurial spirit and relentless fight for life became the compass guiding Joelle and John through the tempest. Watching their father, a beacon of strength and innovation, fight the relentless battle instilled in them a profound understanding of resilience, the importance of family, and the value of time. The ordeal was a crucible, forging their spirits in resilience and determination, shaping their destinies to embrace the entrepreneurial path, to create, innovate, and make a difference.

Jarold’s journey was not just a battle against a relentless foe; it was a symphony of love, strength, and unity, as family and friends rallied around him, a testament to the enduring power of love and the strength of the human spirit. It was a time of reflection and realization, a time to understand the essence of existence, the value of every moment, and the unbreakable bonds of family.

Jarold may have lost his battle to the relentless foe, but his spirit, his resilience, and his passion for life continue to live on, illuminating the path for Joelle and John. His entrepreneurial spirit, his zest for innovation, and his unwavering resilience are the foundations upon which Matlock is built. His journey is a constant reminder of the power of the human spirit, the importance of family, and the boundless possibilities of innovation.
