Jarrod has always been described as a polite and kind young man. It has been said that he didn’t have a bad thing to say about anyone. He was sensitive, fun-loving, and always had a joke to share. He enjoyed socializing with sharing his many friendships.

For a time, Jarrod was an active member of St. Matthew Catholic Church with his daughter, Ariana where he faithfully attended Mass and participated in Generations of Faith with her.
