    I didn’t know or ever meet Jared. But it hurts like a family member. So sad…the only football game I’ve ever been to was to see Jared’s team play Tennessee on a cold day with my dad. The memories of that day with my dad, who is now gone, are even more special now. Praying for his family..

    Wow, things were just going so well for our football program. we were flying high with recruiting and looking forward to another fun, competitive season. This is like a punch to the gut. I hope our football team can dedicate their season to Jared’s memory. Godspeed to his friends and family. Jared will be looking down on every game from the best seats in the house.

      It was definitely a shocker. He just seemed to be like one of the many boys from Kentucky. A bit blue collar, hard working guy a bit rough around the edges at times. Never giving up, taking a hit for the team. Raised up the way many of us good ol Kentucky boys were raised. I’m not all that good with words, but I’m sure y’all all know what I’m trying to say. This will be the toughest loss for many seasons to come. Rest In Peace #22. Go Cats.

    I still can’t believe it. A young lady (young to me) that I go to church with, and who is a very good friend to me and my family and who was only 50 just died and we’re in shock from that (needless to say the whole family is). She and her aunt taught my daughter in Bible class several times when she was small, and this young lady referred to all her students as her babies. She has a daughter who is in college. Jared was only 38. Man, prayers for those kids especially.

      CG, so sorry for the loss of your friend. I have so many people to pray for this week.

    Sitting here listening to the KSR Show replay from after the Florida win, and it makes me so grateful that Jared was able to see that happen.
