Jared Ryan Valmores, 19, of Summerville, SC, a US Marine Corps Rifleman, passed away on Wednesday, November 11, 2020.

Jared was born in Belleville, Illinois on March 29, 2001 to Eric M. Valmores and Bonnie J. Fagan Valmores.

The best things in Jared’s life were hanging out with his many friends and playing games with his brothers and sister. Jared enjoyed traveling and vacationing with his family. He looked forward to many more adventures and outdoor pursuits. He loved looking at the night sky. Jared was passionate about wrestling and he achieved his goal of making it to State. Jared loved eating – he was enthusiastic about trying exotic foods. He was very artistic and we appreciated his caricatures of family. Jared’s silliness and antics kept us all laughing.

Survivors: Mother and Father (Bonnie and Eric – Summerville, SC) and siblings – brothers Travis (Longview, TX), Devin (Goose Creek, SC), Dustin (Summerville, SC) and sister Rosemary (Summerville, SC).

Dear Valmores Family,

I learned today through a conversation with a coworker of Jared’s passing. I had the honor of teaching Jared while he was a freshman at Ashley Ridge. Jared’s presence and personality both as a student and a person made him a memorable part of our school community. He didn’t know a stranger, and he treated classmates and teachers alike with empathy and compassion. I am saddened to hear he has passed, and I cannot express adequately how sorry I am for your loss. Jared was one of the good ones. He definitely felt the world around him deeply, and you could see that in his best and worst days. I am grateful I got to experience the joy he brought to others when he was in a room. He will be missed, but more importantly, he will be remembered.

Valmores family,
Jared is without a doubt one of my favorite people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He was truly a light through every moment I shared with him. I am going to miss the times in high school of just sitting in the driveway of your house while talking, laughing, crying and just staring at all the stars and thinking about what life is truly about. When Jared left for bootcamp and I went back to college, it was very upsetting knowing we would probably not be able to be home at the same times. But that didn’t stop Jared from either facetiming me or calling me to “act like we’re hanging out in real life” he would say.
I truly have so much love for Jared, and always will. He was one of my best friends and I am thankful for having the opportunity to know him.
To Jared’s family, if there is anything I can ever do for you, please do not hesitate to ask.
My number is (843) 870-2906.

I miss my time with Jared a lot. He wasn't only a friend, but he was the first person I could call my best friend. Every day I went to elementary school I was excited, not for classes, but because I got to see my best friend Jared. Every time we hung out, played games on the playset in the backyard, sleepovers, Nerf wars, manhunt, videogames, Legos, etc. I was always so happy to be with him. There was literally nothing better than 3rd grade us hearing that we got to have a sleepover or hang out, and those times were some of the most fun parts of my life. He is the first thing I think of when I remember my childhood because he was there for so much of it. I honestly don't know who I would be today without Jared's fun, goofy energy. Even after your family moved from Illinois to South Carolina, hearing about Jared growing up as we went into high school was something I looked forward to, and he became such a great guy. For so many years, Jared felt like a brother to me, and I will never forget the happy times we had together.

To my former classmate, close friend, and neighbor,
I will forever miss the adventures that we had and late night conversations in Spencer’s driveway. You were the most genuine and the funniest person I knew and I am so glad we had sports med freshman year of high school and realized that we lived right down the road from each other. Then Spencer moved in right next door to you and the rest was history! I remember always waiting to hear the doorbell ring or a rock thrown at my window (which yes, did happen once or twice). My favorite memory was us three going downtown Charleston and the mini photo-shoot I took of you and Spencer.
You are already so missed.

Valmores family,

I am crushed to hear about this passing. I loved my time spent at your house in Illinois, and all the bustle of a busy house with a ton of kids. I remember hanging out with Jared, playing table top games or watching Adventure Time. There was so much love in that house. I’ve prayed for your family each day since his passing. I pray that you all find peace and support that is necessary right now.

I love you all,

Valmores Family,

I am heartbroken and so sorry for your incredible loss. I am Jared’s friend Patrick’s mom. All of those boys loved each other and loved being together. Any time I saw Jared, he had a beautiful smile, gentle demeanor and always a gentleman. Such a great kid. I’m grateful for the kinship the boys found in one another. I know it will be one Patrick never forgets and always cherishes. Thanks to you and his brothers and sister, for nurturing his wonderful spirit. You are ALL in our thoughts, wishing you peace.
