    Jared was my son too and I love him very much. Tall handsome, laid back personality, always a smile and great sense of humor. Smart, compassionate and charming. When he entered the room it was always a treat. He always brought out the best in people. He was a model human being for the rest of us. We need more Jared’s. I always enjoyed watching him play football and lacrosse. A very gifted athlete. He will certainly be missed by all but my memories of him and my love will last forever.
