Steven Tadeo Funeral & Expenses

Steven Tadeo, a beloved son, brother, uncle, boyfriend, friend and local high school teacher, tragically passed away on March 19, 2023 just outside of Yuba City, California. He was only 30 years old.

Steven was returning to Chico after spending his spring break visiting his mother, father, girlfriend and three sisters that he leaves behind. He was struck by a semi-truck at the intersection of Highway 99 and Oswald Road.

An inspirational figure to many, Steven was an active member of the Chico community. He worked for Inspire School of Arts & Sciences as a high school history teacher and remained committed to empowering youth through education and diversity. Commonly known as “Mr. T,” Steven was preparing to embark on a field trip with his history class to the Deep South where the students would learn about the Civil Rights movement.

Outside of school, Steven enjoyed exploring the outdoors with his dog Ghost and socializing with friends. His natural leadership and positivity toward other human beings were a huge part of his identity throughout his short-lived life. Please help us in supporting Steven’s family who are enduring this tragic loss.
