I will always remember Cadet Mendoza for his amazing smile. When I was taking pictures at Washington Youth Academy, he would be intense and working hard and when he saw the camera, he would flash a ear to ear smile. He told me, "Ma'am, I can't have you posting pictures of me where I am not smiling! Don't want to worry my mom!" I saw in him the kindest heart, a loving spirit and his excitement for each new day was contagious. He worked hard and always, always smiled.

I am so sorry to hear the news of Jaret today. Absolutely heartbreaking. My heart goes out to all of you. I remember both Jaret and Kris coming to Epic so many years ago. They were the best behaved kids and always so well taken care of. The most handsome little boys you ever saw. I remember you and Jose picking them up, your faces would just light up at the first sight of them. May God surround you with with love and comfort during this time.

My son, Chris, knew Jaret most of their young lives. I just got the news today and my heart broke, the tears have not stopped flowing and my heart goes out to his family. They went to school and played sports together from early on at St. Pauls, and were reunited at West Valley, and Jaret always seemed like a good guy. I remember him being full of smiles, charisma, and jokes. It is such a shock to so many people and he will be missed. No words can take away the pain but hopefully the love and support of those who knew him and the family can ease the grief.

Jaret and Grayson were invited to a basketball camp one summer. So Jose took them to the camp and I picked them up. I surprised them with a trip to silverwood after with Scott Maki and my other son. What a time we had! All of the boys played hard and really enjoyed our day at silverwood. Jaret ordered the largest burger the restaurant had. Lol. And he ate it all!
So many good memories of him. My heart aches for Jose and Araceli, Chris and Tiara. For the loss of their beautiful boy
Rest Easy young man.

Sweet, funny Jaret
What sad news to get today. My heart breaks for your family but I know that your time here was wonderful. You were loved so much by everyone who knew you, including teachers. You were a joy to have in class and you always kept me smiling. Rest easy, sweet boy.

I’ve known Jaret for 11 years thats the time i have been working at his parents daycare, i still remember he was 15 years old and was on summer vacation when he first decided to volunteer/work at his parents daycare center and he would arrive for his shift and only 30 minutes at the job and telling me he was going to take his “coffee break” those 10 minute coffee breaks were turned into 2 hours of sleeping time in his dads office lol he was a good coworker during his time there helping us he made our day fun and looked forward to going to work knowing he was going to make it fun lol kids loved teacher Jaret and were also excited to see him when he would get there. During nap time he would always tell me he was going to buy at least 2 or 3 pair of Jordans with his first paycheck because if he worked these many hours and gets paid this much per hour he can buy that many Jordans lol i hated to burst his bubble but i had to explain how his paycheck wasn’t going to be the amount he thinks its going to be because he has to have taxes taken out and other things but he was so innocent and would just tell me “no esa, i can just tell my dad not to do that” lol, i would just tell him im sorry Jaret but thats how the law works but he didn’t care he would still continue to come to work and when he did receive his first paycheck he would come to me and ask why where they robbing him lol We would just laugh it off because he was looking forward in getting shoes, he did ended up getting his Jordans he wanted but 1 pair at a time lol

Your memory will forever be in my heart and will never be forgotten.

I coached my son Scott and Jaret in AAU basketball all through elementary and parts of middle school. Jaret was a gifted athlete and fun to coach. He loved to compete and provided us a spark on more than one occasion. We’ll miss you Jaret!

My sweet, naughty Jaret, 💔

You were in the first 4th grade class that I taught. You were the sweetest, cutest kid. And your parents....they love you soooo much. You worked your way into my heart because you loved life.

I’m so sad to hear this news. God bless your family.

I met Jaret in high school. My deepest condolences to the entire family, he was a great person when I met him and will continue to be when we see him again.

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed
he was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path
of his life there was only one set of footprints.

He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
and saddest times in his life. This really bothered
him and he questioned the Lord about it.

"Lord, you said that once I decided to follow
you, you'd walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in my life,
there is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why when I needed
you most you would leave me."

The Lord replied:
"My son, my precious child, I love you and I would
never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you."

Jaret was one of my son Graysons best friends growing up. School friends from St Paul’s and basketball and soccer. We had many sleepovers and tournaments together. Jaret was so fun and eager. Many laughs with those silly boys. They recently hung out and played basketball for several hours. Grayson is grateful for his time spent with Jaret. He will be forever missed but always in our hearts ❤️
