Ulrich Jaussling (Jaussle, Jausel), was the successor of Sebastian Dietrich as the leader of the total Hutterite community in Moravia and Hungary. Concerning Jaussling's origin nothing is known. Bossert surmises that he came from Grossgartach near Heilbronn, where there were several Josslin families after 1570. By trade he was a coppersmith. On 14 March 1599 he was made a preacher, on 24 February 1602, an elder, and on 18 December 1619, leader of the total brotherhood. As such he had by no means an easy position. At that time the Thirty Years' War was raging in the country, causing the brotherhood enormous losses by murder, plundering, and arson. Jaussling fled to Hungary with many helpless brethren. The strains and responsibilities of the care of the brotherhood apparently undermined his health. At the age of 48 he died at the Pranitsch castle in Hungary, 8 April 1621, 22 years after his first ordination and a little more than two years after becoming leader. The chronicles describe him as a God-fearing, zealous, and faithful leader, who left many good teachings to the brotherhood. His successor, Rudolf Hirzel, was chosen on 9 May 1621; he was, however, not equal to the strenuous task, and was deposed a few months later.
