    Jarrod was one of the kindest honest most genuine people I have ever met. HHe was loved by anyone who ever knew him, he was impossible not to move. He is missed more than words can say. Condolences to his family.

    So sad to see a Father to be die and at such a young age! He was a brilliant mind and was involved in the Talented and Gifted Program at his school. He was a fast learner, a competent paddler, a good hand in carpentry and he loved music and wild life. That’s what I remember about Jerrod!
