He was born Sept. 21, 1994, and is survived by all four of his parents, Heidi Whitley and Jessica Trader, as well as David Wood and Nicholas Norris.
Jared was a worldly guy who lived many places and traveled very often, and, as such, he has touched lives in these many places. Jared most recently resided in Trevorton, where he was a recent graduate of Line Mountain High School, class of 2012. He graduated with honors in computers from Northumberland County Career and Technology Center. Jared loved his friends and his teammates on the Line Mountain football and basketball teams.
He was a kind and considerate person who only wanted peace and happiness for everyone around him. Jared's smile and sense of humor will be sadly missed.
Jared leaves behind a very large and loving family. Surviving are his great-grandmother, Gertrude Chase, of Absecon, N.J.; his paternal grandparents, Eloise and Joseph Wood, of Hammonton, N.J., and his maternal grandparents, Joan Whitley, of Tremont, and Henry and Carol Whitley, of Wagener, S.C.
