Stryder J. Wegener – In Memoriam
Stryder J. Wegener led a vigorous life full of humor, charisma, integrity, and genuine affection for his family and friends. He touched many hearts throughout his life, and he gained a reputation for being someone his loved ones could always depend on no matter what.
Stryder was born in Kalispell, Montana, and moved to Seattle at the age of 8 where he established lifelong friendships. During his years at Roosevelt High School, he was voted “Class Clown” and enjoyed pumping up the crowd at football games.
In 2013, he married his best friend, sidekick, and the love of his life, Lauren. Together, they raised their beloved daughter, Chloe.
As a dedicated father, Stryder enjoyed taking Chloe on walks, daddy-daughter date nights, and golfing adventures. The commitment and passion he had for his friends and family extended to the clients he served throughout his legal career.
Stryder graduated from the University of Washington in 2001 with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Psychology.
He earned a Juris Doctorate from Seattle University School of Law where he graduated Cum Laude in 2004. After law school, Stryder worked at the YWCA of Pierce County in the legal services department, where he represented primarily Spanish-speaking victims of domestic violence in matters ranging from criminal hearings to protection orders and dissolutions.
These experiences fostered Stryder’s perspective on how cases are practically handled and instilled a deep appreciation that everyone deserves responsive and aggressive legal representation. This guided him to establish Emerald City Law Group, which is dedicated to protecting people’s rights. He will be missed dearly by his friends, family, and the legal community.
