Jarred David Glaza

September 27, 1983February 8, 2020

Jarred David Glaza “Jar Bear” “Uncle Jar Jar”, 36 years old, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, moved to Heaven on Saturday, February 8, 2020 due to a sudden illness. Jarred was born in Bad Axe, Michigan, on September 27, 1983, where he was the oldest of three brothers. He graduated from Cass City High School in 2003 and attended Baker College and Delta College thereafter. Jarred was born and raised in Michigan until moving to Arizona at the age of 28. Jarred has held numerous jobs throughout his life, including some of his favorites, which required him to travel throughout the country. He worked for three years at Northwest Railroad Company, repairing railroads and bridges, and he was also a truck driver for one year. He used this time to see the country and travel to many different states. Although Jarred liked traveling for work, he really enjoyed jobs that centered on helping animals. Jarred worked many years on dairy farms, while living in Michigan, Arizona, Tennessee, and Indiana. While living in Fort Wayne, Jarred worked at Bentley’s Animal Boutique for two years and most recently Family, Farm, and Home for one year in the Fort Wayne, Indiana area. Jarred’s favorite activity was to play and spend time with his two nieces. Jarred wanted to be his nieces’ “favorite uncle”. He wanted nothing more than to watch his two nieces grow and build a strong relationship with them. Jarred is survived by his parents, Art and Suzette; brothers, Jordan (Regina) and Justin (Alesia); and nieces, Eris and Caia. In lieu of flowers for the memorial, a discretionary memorial donation may be given to Art and Suzette Glaza. In memory of Jarred, please consider becoming a blood and/or organ donor. The family of Jarred Glaza wishes to thank St. Joseph Lutheran Hospital of Fort Wayne and the ICU Staff for their exceptional care and support. The family would also like to thank Heartland Hospice for all their support during this time. The memorial service for Jarred will be held at Shabbona United Methodist Church on Saturday, February 29, 2020. Jarred is being cremated, but there will be a visitation from 9:00am-11:00am with service immediately to follow starting at 11:00am. Pastor Mike Smith of Life Song Church will be officiating.

As memories of Jarred from our family childhood, he was quiet until he opened up. Always polite and considerate. I recall him being in Boy Scouts and representing the lord by wearing WWJD bracelets and Jesus shirts. I remember Jarred being a good worker, loved the land and animals. As he grew older, he remained a responsible, good-hearted man. I recall him watching over my house and my labs; Bo and Bear. He did wonderful with them. He was always very trustworthy. I pray they are all reunited now. We will greatly miss you Jarred for I myself feel you have been gone too soon! However, that wasn’t up to any of us who selfishly wish for you to still be here with us. God speed loving cousin! Until we meet again!
