Jared was an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved the great outdoors and was a jack of all trades. He was a free spirit who lived life to the fullest in so many ways. He had so many people he loved and so many that loved him back. He was a one of a kind guy who was always up for an adventure. He was like a brother to so many wonderful family and friends. Someone so many people looked up to and put a smile on so many faces.
“You and I have become more than best friends we have become brothers”, “When I needed someone you were always there”, “You're wise beyond your years”, “Thanks for being the light of the room”, “You always put others first”, “You were the kindest person I have ever met”, “You were my partner in crime”, “He was so protective over us girls (his cousins)", “He has helped me meet amazing people”, “I love how you always stood up for yourself”, “You always made me feel loved”, “We will cherish every moment we had with you Jared”, “Not one day he won’t be watching over his boys” and “What wasn’t to love about him? I loved his spunk, his love of life and love for all”. These were just a handful of quotes from loved ones.
