We present model wave functions for quasielectron (as opposed to quasihole) excitations of the unitary Zk parafermion sequence (Laughlin, Moore-Read, or Read-Rezayi) of fractional quantum Hall states. We uniquely define these states through two generalized clustering conditions: they vanish when either a cluster of k+2 electrons is put together or when two clusters of k+1 electrons are formed at different positions. For Abelian fractional quantum Hall states (k=1), our construction reproduces the Jain quasielectron wave function and elucidates the difference between the Jain and Laughlin quasielectrons.
