The sister of a man killed in a Wednesday morning shooting in east Mesa remembers him as a normal 19 year old who liked hanging out with friends, traveling, and watching movies.

Busso-Estopellan, 21, told police he shot Olek Wladyszewski, 19, and ASU student Tyler Webster, 18, over a deal he had brokered for Wladyszewski to sell marijuana to a Jamaican man at least two months ago, according to a Mesa police report. Both men died.

Ola Wladyszewski, Olek’s younger sister who lives in Gilbert, described Wladyzewski in an email to the Tribune:

“He loved cars; he has attended many car shows,” Ola Wladyszewski said in the email. “He also loved to play poker with his friends. He also liked going to the gym on a regular basis. He was a good son, brother, and friend."

Olek also is survived by his parents, Alex and Dorota Wladyszewski, and another sister, Lena, who also is 19.

“We are all holding onto the good times we had with him. It’s what’s getting us through this tough time,” Wladyszewski said. “He was a good man, had no enemies. He was so funny and could make any one laugh, he was overall a funny person, always smiling and happy. We all miss him very much.”
