Submitted by his Mother
Jared joined the Prairie Township Fire Department in 2007. He was also a reserve Sheriff Deputy.
He was an amazing person‚ always ready to help others and always just so happy all of the time. He was a member of the National Honor Society in school. He owned his own semi-truck and trucking company – Zimmerly Trucking when he was just 18. He worked very hard and long hours but still maintained an active social life. He had so many friends. He was an avid motorcyclist and owned his own Harley Fat boy motorcycle.
He is survived by his daughter Kierra and her mother Jolene; his mother and father Tim and Marlene; a sister Julia; a brother-in-law Cody; a brother‚ Jeremy; and a niece Shaelyn. His best friend Eric Miller was like a brother to him. Eric has named his new son after Jared.
Jared is missed very much by Jolene. They loved each other very much.
He was one of the most generous and kind people I have ever met. We miss him so much. Nothing is the same without him.
