Jared Aaron Wasserman

Today, we gather here to pay tribute to a remarkable beautiful man, loving husband, great friend, and cherished soul. As we reflect upon the life of Jared, we celebrate his enduring spirit, his unwavering love, and the indelible impact he has left upon all who had the privilege of knowing him. Jared was born November 10, 1982 in Fort Campbell, Kentucky to his loving parents Ted and Vicky Wasserman. Shortly after that, his family relocated to Michigan where Jared grew up and spent his childhood. Jared was incredibly close with his father, Ted, sharing his devoutness in his Jewish heritage and faith. Growing up, Jared and his siblings shared a love of sports, music, and especially great food (Latkes anyone?).

Jared was exceptionally hardworking. Jared had a job from the age of 14, when he first hired de-tasseling corn. He earned enough money to buy his first car at just 15, a beautiful teal and pink monstrosity that was all his own. Throughout high school, Jared worked at Mancino's Pizza where he met and became great friends with Jessica Hall, and later working at Meijer. After graduating from Coldwater High School, Jared enlisted in the U.S. Army with the 1st Infantry Division, 4th Calvary as a Medic. Upon his return, Jared found work at Thurston Woods as a CNA, where he was adored by staff and residents alike.  

Jared and Kevin met in 2004 after he moved to Chicago, and we instantly connected and fell in love. They married in 2014 after Jared proposed while they vacationed with his brother Jacob and family for the holidays in Texas. To say that Jared was a brilliant, remarkable man would be an understatement. He possessed a rare combination of strength, knowledge, kindness, and wisdom that shone through in every aspect of his life. His presence lit up a room, and his warm smile could bring solace to the most troubled hearts even though he was very direct and spoke his mind. Jared was a pillar of unwavering support. He stood by my side through thick and thin, demonstrating a profound commitment and dedication that words cannot adequately describe. He loved Kevin with a passion that knew no bounds, showering him with affection, understanding, and comfort. Their bond was built on a foundation of trust, respect, and a love that transcended all obstacles.

In all aspects of his life, Jared displayed a deep sense of integrity and compassion. He was a true friend, always ready to lend a listening ear or offer words of wisdom, and help in any way he can. His generosity knew no limits, extending his hand to those in need and providing a haven of encouragement and guidance.

His wise counsel and gentle nature touched the lives of countless individuals, leaving an imprint that will forever be cherished. Whether it was within his family, his circle of friends, or his community, his presence radiated love and inspired those around him to strive for greatness. Jared was indeed one of a kind. Beyond his personal relationships, Jared also made significant contributions to the world. Jared earned a Bachelor's in Business with a concentration in Accounting from Robert Morris University and an MBA and Master's in Finance simultaneously. Jared also became a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE), having practiced since 2008. Through his professional endeavors, he pushed the boundaries of innovation, leaving his mark on countless projects that will continue to shape our future.

Jared was very accomplished and such a hard worker, belonging to countless Executive Boards and organizations to make the world a better place. His dedication and passion for his work were contagious, inspiring those around him to aim higher and dream bigger. He was so business-driven and recognized in all aspects for his contributions that many were shocked to learn he was also a Veteran. Jared was proud of serving his country and would engage with anyone interested in hearing about his experiences and the discipline and structure the Army taught him.

Jared was extremely proud of being Jewish and supported various Jewish causes. He loved spending holidays with his nephews Tristan and Theo and educating them on the Jewish culture; moreover, everyone knew how much Jared loved his nephews Tristan and Theo, constantly highlighting their achievements, intelligence, and overall his pride of being their uncle. When Jared and Kevin celebrated non-Jewish holidays with friends he would always say he loved Christmas only because of the pretty lights, which made everyone laugh. Today, as we bid farewell to a beloved husband and friend, we will try our best not to succumb to sorrow but instead celebrate the gift that he was to this world. Let us cherish the memories we shared with him and honor his legacy by living our lives with the same kindness, compassion, and love that he displayed so effortlessly.

Jared unexpectedly passed away on January, 22, 2024, and is survived by his husband, Kevin Winters. Jared was preceded in death by his father Ted Wasserman, grandmother Phyllis Atlas, and grandfather Charles Baker. As we say goodbye to this remarkable soul, let us remember that his spirit will forever reside in our hearts. May his legacy continue to inspire us and guide us towards a brighter future.

Jared will be greatly missed by his beloved husband, Kevin Winters; his Uncle Scott Wasserman, and his family; his mother, Vicky Wasserman of Coldwater, MI; his sister, Jennifer Marker of Sandpoint, ID; Brothers Joshua Wasserman of Apollo Beach, FL; Jacob Wasserman of Greer; SC; Nieces and Nephews especially Tristan and Theo Wasserman; close friends, Jewdess Buckhoy, Samantha McCurties, Jessica Hall, Jessie Montes de Oca and Jennifer Concepcion, Colleen and Jeff Giltz, Renee Grizzle, Shawn Woods, Justin and Patricia Pearson, and many more who cherished him. 

Rest in peace, dear husband, knowing that your love and light will forever shine upon us.
