Jared was a graduate of West Prairie High School Class of 2015. He worked doing carpentry, flooring, especially tiling, and welding. He enjoyed hiking, fishing, 4 wheelers, jet skies, being on the water, music, playing board games. The time he spent with his brothers having air soft battles and playing with them on the X Box, brought him great joy. In his younger years he was a member of a boxing club that he worked very hard at improving his skills. Jared could light up a room with his personality and laugh, he would always take time to help anyone out that needed help. Trey said, he liked to ride bikes with Lance, Gavin and Trevor. Trey also loved to ride with Jared on the 4 wheeler. Lance said even when times were hard for Jared, he would always care for his family and somehow was always the funniest and fun person to be around no matter what. Nathaniel said Jared always wanted to make sure everyone around him was laughing and happy. He would always be animated and upbeat with a story and would get everyone to listen. He wanted everyone to have a good time and was driven to be the center of it. Even when he was frustrated if he could bring laughter to others it would bring a smile to his face. When grandpa wanted some kind of manual labor done, he knew he could count on Jared to help him. Of all the things that he enjoyed taking part in and doing, he loved the time he spent with his friends and family.
