Jared Carpenter Memorial Fund

Tragically Jared lost his life yesterday,  in his twin brothers words, “Doing what he loved to do.” Jared was so full of life and loved sports and riding his dirt bikes and 4 wheelers with his friends and his other half Marcus. We never expect to loose a child, it’s something that should never happen. We all love you Jared, you are now our special angel. I would like to let everyone know who I am so you feel safe knowing your donations will be going directly to Crystal, Jacob, and Marcus. My name is Kim Slezak, Crystal and I have been best friends since we were little girls, our friendship has always remained so strong that it’s like we are sisters. Each of us always there when the other needs anything at all. We grew up on the street over from each other and I’ve always lived in coventry. I started this go fund me because I know how stressful and expensive it is to plan a wake, funeral, and burial. I can’t even imagine having anything else to worry about after loosing a child. It kills me that I can’t take even an ounce of her pain away. Jared was also my Godchild, my nephew, my children’s cousin and friend. I am in complete awe over all of the support and all of the amazing people who have donated, shared, and offered kind words. Crystal has requested that I handle this whole fundraiser by making the withdrawals and delivering the money directly to her, Jake, and Marcus. They just can’t deal with anything else at this time and I am honored to be the one they trust. These are things I’ve been asked to specify in this post by go fund me. I want you all to know how appreciated you are and how much you have touched the hearts of this family.
