Jaise was born December 11, 1985, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa: The son of Walter Weldon and Lonie Goldsberry. He attended Catholic elementary and junior high schools in Cedar Rapids and completed his high school education in the Twin Cities.

In 2010, Jaise married and bought a home in Champlin, MN. He and his former wife had one child together, a son, Everett.
Growing up, Jaise was often a goof and jokester. He loved to make people laugh with embarrassing quips about those around him. Although he loved the uncomfortable laughs, Jaise ardently loved and was loyal to each and every member of his family and friends. He was exceptionally empathetic to others' feelings and had an enormous heart. Jaise had high expectations and moral standards; he recognized human faults and pushed everyone to be better, but none as much as himself. He spent a lot of time thinking about how one becomes a better person, contemplating deeply about the meaning of life. He believed, "Tomorrow will be brighter." He was an avid nature-lover, bringing home and surrounding his family with various pets and critters.
