Funeral Expenses for Jared Padgett

In a situation like the one at Reynolds High School, there is no justice.  There is only heartbreak.  We acknowledge that huge amounts of terror, anger, and even hatred can come from a tragedy like yesterday's.  But given the choice, we would rather respond with compassion than with more hatred.

I cannot imagine what the Padgett family must be feeling right now. Please donate any amount you can to provide for funeral expenses for their son, brother, and cousin.

My name is Amy Evans, and I graduated from Reynolds in 2009, with a family member of Jared's.  Several of my alumni friends and I have agreed that this is a tangible way to show compassion and empathy in the midst of the tragedy. I will keep this page updated with details of the account and the way funds will be distributed.


Any and all hateful comments will be immediately deleted.  Choose compassion for Jared's family, and please share.
