My name is C.G.P., I'm cousin to Jared. His mother Laura Holland is my aunt through my dad's side of the family.
Jared was always a kind, funny, loving and extremely caring person. The love he shared with everyone in his life was pure. You often found Jared surrounding his family and friends and children.
When we were kids, Jared would always be around all of us ( female family, friends) looking out for us. Growing up in East Van was the best but also came with alot of ugly too, so whenever Jared was around us, he came with a loving vibe. He was like a great big bear loving life itself and everyone in it. Every time I ran into Jared, he always had the biggest smile on his face. I have many memories of growing up with him, I'll forever keep him in my heart as he would for me if the tables were reversed.
Jared carried a beautiful soul, even more so because being raised in East Vancouver was quite the journey. We all grew up learning respect, love and loyalty.
Jared's life was cut short far too soon, he had a long beautiful life to live ahead of him with his children, his mother and siblings and the rest of our family.
From the day his life was taken from us to the day we all meet in the spirit world, I'll keep his memory alive and keep Jared in my heart.
Gone too Soon Cousin, love you always Jay <3
Thank you Auntie Laura for sharing such a beautiful person with the world!
Love from C.G.P.
