To Jared's Mom & Dad and Sisters and Brothers, I am so sorry to hear about Jared's passing. He is gone way too soon and it is unfair.He was a great man with the kindest heart, I will always remember his laugh, and enjoying life. He loved people and making them happy. He adored his parents and brothers and sisters, especially his neices and nephews! May God bring peace to you and peace to Jared.
To the family and friends of the deceased, Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. Many have found true comfort from the pages of God's word the Bible (2 Corinthians 1:3-5}. The Bible tells us why we die (Genesis 2:16, 17; Romans 5:12) the condition of the dead (Ecclesiastes 9:5) and that we can be reunited with our loved ones (Acts 24:15). The Bible also tells us where this happy event will take place (Psalm 37:29; 115:16). At John 17:3 Jesus tells us the benefit of reading and studying the Bible. He also said at John 8:32 that "the truth will set you free". Please visit to learn what the Bible really teaches.

Rest in Peace Jared...You were a true gentleman and it was my privilege to work with you in the 20 Pct.....Working with Police Officers like you made my job as a Sgt. much easier and I thank you for that.

Memories of Jared as a young kid and throughout adulthood are of a gentle, happy, funny , kind spirited soul, with a heart larger than his big curly hair ( as a kid ). Even though ( regrettably ) , I didn't get to see him much throughout the past few years (so glad I got to play a crazy, fun game of paintball with him and the entire Wendt clann) , he will be missed and always have a gentle place in my heart. I will truly miss him and I know he will always be watching over his entire family. Rest In Peace my little brother
