Jared was born in Penticton, BC on April 5, 1966 and grew up in the Okanagan Valley the youngest of six children. He enjoyed playing sports such as hockey and baseball. Jared excelled at school academically and had a very close network of friends at Pen-Hi.
Jared worked in the aviation and cooking industry. His love of aircrafts was very apparent as he was very excited to return to aviation as a refueller with Lockhart Aviation in Regina. He was well respected and admired by his co-workers.
Jared had a love for animals and his two furbabies, Norway and Sherman, who were always being photographed and posted on social media for everyone to enjoy. They truly were his children.
Jared was an avid sports enthusiast. His favorite teams being the Vancouver Canucks, Seattle Seahawks, and Saskatchewan Roughriders. He had a vast collection of sports memorabilia which he proudly displayed in his new man cave at his home in Regina. He attended Roughrider games and met many sports players at special events whenever possible.
Jared had a wicked sense of humour, a love for others and animals, was a fantastic cook, and enjoyed researching all different subjects on the internet. His friends and family will miss his daily banter on social media. He will be forever remembered and loved by all who knew him.
