"Mrotchek" is quite close, but the given name is much harder: "sh" is not
the sound that's supposed to appear there. I think it may not be present in
English - fortunately I've found a good sample pronounciation:

As for me, I'd say "Yaneck" is what you should aim for (but I'm not going
to try this for the family name :p)
