Chase always had a smile and a hug. He was always polite and respectful. My heart shattered when I learned of his passing. There are no words that can ease your pain. I pray for peace for Tammy, Ric, Nathan and the rest of his family.

Tammy and family: I so remember Chase at the middle school with that beautiful smile, kindness and respectfulness he had towards everyone. He was a dedicated student and very bright. May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

Chase and I were close friends all throughout high school and continued to talk and check in with each other ever since. He was always such a sweet, caring person and had such a bright personality, and he meant a lot to a lot of people! He will be missed so much.

I cant even explain how it felt to hear this news. Your smile and how precious your heart was amazed me. Your love for you grandmother was so sweet. I can hear your laugh like it was yesterday.. I really enjoyed your company sitting on the front porch cutting up and literally talking about our lives and how similar we were in things that we struggled with. Its selfish to want you back knowing what all you went through. You made this world a little brighter. Thank you for allowing me the priviledge of having you in my life. Watch over us up there! Prayers!

Me and Chase worked together at Whitt’s we ended up becoming really close friends, we would always give each other advice. We always had fun at work and enjoyed each other’s company. I always brought him food to work and he loved my cooking, always told him how to make my food. I really miss him, I was talking to him one day and the next is when I got the news and honestly it feels like I lost a part of me. I know he is in a better place now, I miss my best friend.

I watched him grow up. He always had a story to share and a smile. I was amazed by his brilliance! Although he was super smart, he always showed compassion and kindness to others. May you rest in God’s peace and never feel the pain from people in this world again. You will not be forgotten and you will long be remembered for your kind soul! With love, Delynn Shiarla

Now chase and I didn't associate much in school. We didn't really have classes together, and frankly i was all over the place. But after leaving lavergne, we ended up being coworkers at Captian D's. We would cut up when no customers were around, and when we were busy he took the time to welcome everyone that walked in with a genuine warmth. He even chevked in on me when I was showing up exhausted all the time at the job, was dealing with a lot at home. Frankly he was the type of guy who would care about anyone regardless of who they were or what they've done. Rest well my dude

Chase was a close dear friend of my daughter Michaela Swartz. Although she was a senior at LaVergne High School, he a Junior, their souls recognized each others immediately. Valedictorian of the Class of 2017, he was obviously bright and had so very much to offer the future of this world. I was honored, one day to meet this young man whom Michaela held in such high esteem and spoke of so often. It was in the senior parking lot. 2016. I was picking her up, and Chase's dad was on his way to get Chase. I was so excited to finally meet him and put a face to the personality my daughter loved so much. He was welcoming to this crazy lady who gave him an eager hug and relayed to him that I heard so much about him and that my daughter really adored him. I got to watch some playful banter and a quick discussion of his future aspirations. When Chase's dad came we said our good-byes and with a quick waive to them as they drove away, that was my only in person knowledge of him. I woke this morning with a phone call from my baby girl in utter tears! I was just waking up and could not make out what name she was saying and it finally hit my brain. CHASE!!!!! Tears instantly came. I felt like I knew him so well simply by how much she spoke of him and the kind, beautiful soul he was. She was scrolling through social media and sadly, this is how she came to know of his passing. To his family: I want you to know how much Chase was loved and adored by his friends. Even by this crazy woman who came to love him through another's eyes. Baby brother, Chase loved you most of all. He spoke of you with love and spoke of you ALOT! Baby, please know that God knows your pain and confusion. Please know that you will heal and survive this. Please take care of your family and let them take care of you. Most of all take care of YOURSELF. He is truly with you always and will want you to embrace this life and run with it. Fulfill all of your dreams and know that you have him with you at every turn.

Chase and i were definitely kind of close freshman year...i had him in one class period and the short time frame of us being friends was definitely one of the better friendships i had. SUCH a sweetheart...we just kind of fell off after some stuff, but i still wished well for him. Ran into him a few times after graduation but other than that never really kept touch after high school. Chase will be greatly missed and i wish nothing but good thoughts and love towards not only his family but EVERYBODY who is dealing with this terrible loss. Family and friends alike are all in my thoughts and prayers.
