    This young man would come and visit the children with Developmental Disabilities at Fayetteville high school. He was very sweet and respectful with the children. The kids enjoyed him eating lunch with them, as well as playing games. He did these tasks with gladness and singleness of heart. His kindness will be missed, however it will never be forgotten.

    God Bless

He was naturally athletic, and he was a smart, good looking kid. I had a lot of good memories with him. I’m sorry to hear about this, my prayers go out to y’all.

That’s how I will always remember him: kind, silly, always generous, and immensely caring. I am so blessed to have grown up with Jared. My family and I are sending prayers your way.

I love you with all my heart and I will be praying for you everyday. Jared will always be in my heart and I will forever remember how sweet he was to Veronica.

Always put a smile on my face when we had classes together and even in between. He was a beautiful soul that’s for sure.. I was heartbroken to hear the news and my heart goes out to the family and everyone else who knew Jared personally. He was a bright light in everyone’s world.

    As a Senior at FHS, Jared helped get my day off to a good start for an entire school year. We talked music and football and cars. Sometimes we even talked literature because that was the subject of my class. He was occasionally late, but I never minded (and he knew this) because it was always good to see him–as it was always good to see him behind the counter at Richard’s since he graduated. There was a blessing in him and everybody felt it. That he will be missed–and missed terribly–is surely a fact. That he is now with us always in another way is no less so.

    Jareds Family: I have taught school for 29 years and once in a while you come across a student who has all of the qualities you want to see in a young person. As a Agriculture teacher and a FFA Advisor your son Jared is a the top of the list as leader and hard worker. When Richard’s Meat market called me looking for good students to work for them Jared was the first student I thought of. My daughter was in many of his classes and a FFA Officer with Jared and also worked with Jared at the meat market. She is in college at UCA and is driving up here for the visitation. Your son had a wonderful effect on all of those who knew him. Thank you for sharing him with me and I want you to know I will remeber him always. My sincere regrets: Bill Laney Ag. teacher FHS.

    Jared was one of my favorite students ever. I got to know him through 3 years of high school ag classes and as an FFA member and officer. He was caring, thoughtful, and one of the hardest workers I have ever met. Jared was mature beyond his years and we could carry on conversations that many adults could not. I always looked forward to seeing him and was so proud to see him become a young man. My prayers go out to you and your family on this loss.

    Jared had the biggest heart of anyone I have ever met. He was so incredibly talented in whatever he did. It didn’t matter who you were, he always made you feel comfortable. I had several classes with him throughout high school and enjoyed watching him perform in Surf De Soleil. He definitely has impacted the lives of very many people. It’s absolutely heartbreaking that he is gone, my heart goes out to family and close friends. R.I.P. Jared, you will be greatly greatly missed.

He was always in a good mood and carries positive energy with him and to everyone he was in contact with. I had a few classes with him and he always knew how to make me and others laugh. I wish I could make it to the funeral, but I currently reside in Pennsylvania and can’t make it.

    He will be a wonderful addition to Heaven and one day we will all meet again.

    I think of Jared every school year. There are just some former students that stand out so strongly that you will never forget them. Jared is one of those. Such a kind, sweet-spirit, even at eleven years old. He was a hard worker, always gave his best, and was never in too big a rush to help others or offer to lend me a hand. He loved the Lord, even at such a young age and was never ashamed to share his faith. He loved his family and spoke often of you. I know you will miss him so much, especially in the coming holiday season. My thoughts and prayers are with you. May it give you some peace to know you’ll be with him again one day.

Even though I was not very close to Jared as I would have liked, I always think him as my sister’a very first crush when we came to the states. and for that he occupies a very special space in my heart. He always had that beautiful smile on his face that transmitted happiness to everyone around him.

    I’ve only known Jared from music and didn’t say but a handful of words I imagine, but I always loved watching him perform because he loved what he did and showed such a passion. it has been amazing watching the strength of his sweet wonderful friends, and how supportive everyone has been-they are truly wiser beyond their youth and it’s peaceful to know that jared surrounded himself with such like-minds. he will always be in our hearts one way or another, and memories/legends never die.

    Martha and Scott,
    I feel so blessed to have had your son as part of my family the last three years. He was truly such a joy. He was also a gentleman. He opened every door, he would bring in my groceries, he was always the first one to clear the table, and ask what else can I do? Gratitude was one of his greatest gifts. No matter how small, he thanked me numerous times. That always meant so much to me. I know he is in heaven, and I know he will be watching over all of us. I will think of him and miss him for the rest of my days. One day I will see that sweet face again. Ashton loved him so very much and so did we.
    All my love and prayers to you both, Jessica
