Terry, Alex & Brandon I am so sorry for the loss of Brett. I remember both of the boys when Dennis coached them in little League, just a few years ago. I so remember those days & wish we could go back to them. I guess Dennis can start a team in Heaven with Josh & Brett.
My prayers are with you all for strength to get thru this. Hold on to the memories! I hope people will share with you all there memories of Brett. Thinking of you during your time of grief! Love Patti Woods

I love you and miss you terribly. You made me feel like I had a purpose in life. You made me feel needed.
I will never forget the first time I met you. You gave me a huge hug and I knew right then and there I would marry you someday.
I love you more than words could ever express. I would give anything for just one more of those hugs...
I love you Brett, always and forever

There aren’t many memories from high school that didn’t involve Brett. Seemed like we were always together no matter where I hung out! He was a prankster, and I loved that about him. Life was always more fun when Brett was around. Even after high school we kept up with each other (until the past year or so). Brett helped me when my brother went through his darkness after he was deployed. He was fighting his own darkness, but was still willing to help and talk to his friend. I’m grateful to have known, loved, and shared parts of my life with Brett. My heart and prayers are with his family....

Grew up with Brett him being right down the street from me. Our parents became close friends, would go over to their house with my parents watch him and Brandon jump their dirt bikes over the ramp they had in the field. Or times down at the river whenever him and Chad would come down there being silly mooning us and such.
I'm proud to have known you Brett Jabot you were definitely one of a kind ❤ Rest easy friend.

Bret, was a friend of my son from high school so I got to know him some before his military days. He never asked for anything and was always polite when over to visit. After his service to his country he came by a few times and I seen how he grown; married, children a lot of responsibility! He still was the quiet Bret from his high school days I knew, but I could tell he had a lot on his mind. I’m sorry for his loss and those who needed him most.
