I had the honor of knowing Jared through our work for only a few years. When we were on the same project he would come by and say hello and with me being the guy at work with the candy bowls, we would each have some candy and catch up. Myself being a preacher's kid we would talk about church things and he was very much an example of how to live that life. Jared was very kind and the kind of guy who had a smile that people describe as "going all the way up to his eyes"... well that is very much how I would describe Jared. Very gentle and kind and seemed to smile all the time. My heart goes out to the Sherman family and I wish you peace in this time of sorrow. I personally believe in Heaven and although bittersweet now, I hope you are granted solace in knowing Jared is smiling down on us and is at rest until we can all see that smile again firsthand.

I’m saddened at the sudden loss of Jared. I’m heartbroken for your family. I’ve got many fond memories throughout the last 20 years of being blessed with Jared’s friendship and his musical talents. The one that sticks out the most is when Jared and Becca came to visit my new little family. You both had such a fun time in the area and we all hung out and visited like no time had past. It felt like old times. He will be greatly missed.

To Jerrod’s family, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I am sorry for your loss.

I only new Jerrod by reputation growing up but I admired him as a fellow musician and audiophile. I enjoyed the brief time we were able to spend together playing bass for the church worship team. More recently I had enjoyed talking engineering with him whenever he and his family visited Redeemer.

Words cannot express how deeply sadden we are by Jared's passing. So many emotions are running through our hearts but the most prevalent is the intense sadness of losing a great friend. Although short, we feel blessed that we got to be a part of Jared's life, and was able to share a few meaningful memories with him and his family. In the past year we have been graced with his friendship and kindness. To us, Jared was more than a neighbor or a friend. He was a brother. Someone you knew you could count on no matter what. Someone who truly cares and loves without asking for anything in return. He was always there when we needed him. One particular memory that will be forever ingrained in our hearts was going to the World Series with him. He generously offered to take us to two of the most important games in baseball even though we knew little about the game. We ended up having so much fun and the result of this memory was an even tighter bond between our families. We will never forget that memory. Jared, you may not be here physically but you will forever be in our hearts. We love you, Becca and the kids very much.

Jared was a wonderful son-in-law. I was always impressed by his patience and love for his children. If either Nolan or Annaleigh needed a daddy hug or kiss, he was always ready. No matter what he was doing, if either child wanted to talk to him or show him something he stopped what he was doing and gave his children his attention. He and Becca were joyfully in love, always doing something as a family, and always making plans to create memories as a couple or with Nolan and Annaleigh. We will miss him so much.

I remember Jared's impish smile. Especially whenever I was over at the Sherman house to hang out with Jenny when we were in elementary school. It didn't matter what we girls were doing, it always seemed as though Jared was plotting mischief!

Words can not express how deeply saddened we are with the passing of Jared. Condolences to Becca and the entire Sherman family.

Jared had a profound impact on me and my development in playing worship guitar for Compass Church. I was constantly asking him for feedback and guidance and he was always there to help me out. Over the course of the last couple of years, I knew I had gained his trust when he continually bumped me up in the mix. He always made us sound so good every Sunday morning. I’ll miss picking his brain. I’ll miss seeing him walk through the church doors with his satchel around his neck carrying his laptop for sound. I’ll miss his knowledge of music and production. I’ll miss his humor. I’ll miss my friend and brother in Christ.
