Elliott Z. A. Senseman


Elliott Zachary Allen Lyons Weinstein Senseman, known to many as just “El” was born August 17, 1994, he left this earth on July 24, 2022. Elliott is now becoming one of the newest members of the 27 Club, meeting all the requirements. He was creative in a way that left us in awe, he was brilliant always wanting to discuss a new method, solution, or idea with any willing or captive audience. He wanted to learn as much as he wanted to teach, never feeling like he knew enough.  Passionate is a word that many people would use to describe Elliott but even that falls short to the energy that emanated out of him.  He was an advocate, an activist, he called himself a feminist which many of us women would argue sometimes. He wasn’t political but he was dedicated to global human rights and welfare.  He was compassionate, kind, and an empath. He was more selfless than most could imagine, if he had it to give, he would; But if he didn’t, he would steal or trade to give. Plato said, “Once free of the body, the soul is able to see truth clearly because it is more pure than before and recalls the pure ideals which it knew before.” Elliott already lived his life pure, never wearing the constraints and fear we all do, he was a book of questions to which there are no answers. Elliott went to Kutztown University for Environmental Science, minoring in Chemistry and Geology. But El would tell you his education was useless; life is the only school. El had a passion for woodworking and sculpting. He devoted his life to Community Regenerative Agriculture.

With so much more to offer this world he leaves behind, his parents Heather Lesko (mother) Kevin Lesko (father) Anthony Weinstein (father) Stephanie Weinstein (mother), and His siblings; Julian Lesko, Aiden Weinstein, Jada Weinstein, and Gianna Lesko. He leaves behind his grandparents Aaron "Pop" Lesko, Sara Senseman, Marcus Lyons, Ira Weinstein, and Danielle Lucas. He left behind his Great-Grandparent Ruth and Richard Stine. He left behind his many aunts and uncles, great-aunts and uncles, and cousins, and so many friends that are family to him. He is predeceased by his grandfather Roger Senseman, grandmother Linda Lesko and his cousin Hannah Jordan.

We will remember Elliott as the kindest, others-oriented, always curious to find the explanations to life's deep questions with eye wide open, mixed with an adventurous spirit. He was our "Little Prince". As Elliott’s girlfriend Lauren said, “he was always looking for an adventure and now he is on his biggest learning experience."
