Jared was born on July 20, 1993 in Perham, the son of Barb Torgerson and Larry Kawlewski.

Jared was a kind-hearted kid who always put other's needs before his own. His love for others had absolutely no boundaries. He enjoyed playing games on his computer, metal detecting, fishing with his brothers and spending time with his family and friends.

Jared was always very giving. A personal quote that Jared wrote and lived by was, "A man with nothing to lose always has something to give." He was always there to lend a helping hand. Jared worked hard and truly enjoyed his job at Time Communications, a division of Arvig. Jared's legacy will forever live on through his family and friends.

Jared's final wish for everyone is to, "Live for today, look forward to tomorrow and don't forget to smile."
