On the evening of Saturday, June 16th, while driving home after spending the day with family, the Lazer family was involved in a tragic car accident. Jared Lazer died at the scene of the accident and Jillayne and all three of their children were hospitalized, including one child with critical injuries.
Jared was a loving husband and father of twin 5-year old girls, Peyton and Audrey and a 3-year old son, Parker. The love, dedication and adoration to his wife and children was evident in everything he did, as his family was his world.
The family is not new to challenges, as shortly after the birth of their twins they learned that Audrey was born with a congenital cataract that required surgery to remove the lens, as well as strabismus/amblyopia. The daily routine of putting a contact lens into an infant's eye, patching the eye and frequent trips to Mayo were done with such love and never a complaint.
Jared was a gifted athlete, special friend to many, remarkable neighbor and loving brother, uncle and son. He always had a smile on his face, was willing to help anyone with anything, and had a great sense of humor. He truly cared about others and went out of his way to make people feel comfortable and special.
On Father's Day, instead of celebrating a special dad, we are mourning the loss of an incredible person. The Lazer family is now faced with the unimaginable task of carrying on without their beloved husband and father. Funds will be used toward funeral costs, medical bills and to support the family with future financial obligations.
