In 1949, the 23-year-old goalkeeper Walter Jäschke was in the squad of the Central Sports Association (ZSG) Altenburg for the first season of the newly founded East Zone League (later GDR Oberliga). He was called up for the first time on the 9th matchday and then completed all the other 17 point games until the end of the season. He was also in the goal of Altenburg in the relegation game for relegation, which the team won 3-2 against Anker Wismar . Also in the 1950/51 season, during which the ZSG was transformed into the Betriebsportgemeinschaft (BSG) Stahl, Jäschke was goalkeeper of the BSG. In the Oberliga, renamed because of the introduction of the new second-rate GDR league, he was used in 29 of the 34 point games.

After completing 14 league games, he moved to the 1952/53 season for 1. FSV Mainz 05 in the Oberliga Südwest. He stayed there until 1955 and made 70 missions in the three seasons. After he had played one more season for Rot-Weiss Essen in the Oberliga West in 1955/56 , Walter Jäschke ended his career in top German football.
