Jared was fun-loving with a wonderful sense of humor that would brighten anyone's day! He was kind hearted and had an instant rapport with the elderly and children alike. He was passionate about cooking and enjoyed sampling foods from many cultures. He was an avid reader and had an artistic flair. These he shared with his daughter at every opportunity. He loved sports, especially the Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots for which he bore the brunt of much teasing from his Chicago friends.
