Jared graduated from Kokomo High School in 1997. He lived in Pompano Beach, FL and worked for United American moving company.
Jared loved his family and his daughter more than anything in the world. He loved golfing and fishing with his friends. He was the life of the party and was always making people laugh. Jared loved music, dancing, and concerts; some have even called him “the songbird of his generation.” He was Jerry Garcia’s biggest fan and was rarely seen without a Grateful Dead tie dyed shirt on. Jared was passionate about helping addicts in recovery and had ambitions to one day open a drug rehabilitation center in Kokomo, IN.
