HAMPTON – Jared Michael Gillis, 29, of Hampton, N.H. passed away suddenly, Wednesday, June 10, 2020 at Exeter Hospital from an undetected heart ailment. He was born in Lowell, Mass. Dec. 12, 1990 the beloved son of Frederick and Pennie (Condon) Gillis of Hampton, N.H.

Raised in Hampton, Jared was a graduate of the Winnacunnet High School Class of 2009. During his high school career, Jared excelled in academics and sports and was selected as the captain of his varsity basketball team. His love for the Hampton school system and the game of basketball inspired him to give back, and he later went on to serve as the basketball coach for the freshman team at Winnacunnet High School.

After high school, Jared attended the University of New Hampshire where he earned a degree in business and psychology. He was employed by the State of New Hampshire park division as an Engineering Supervisor for many years. Most recently, Jared was employed with Arakelian Plumbing and Heating where he was able to hone his trade but in a short time made great friends and truly became part of the APH family.

Jared had a passion for life and was always on the move. He was a sports enthusiast, who loved the game of basketball, but his biggest joy was spending time with his family and friends. Jared was a thoughtful and caring person who always put others before himself and wouldn't hesitate to give you the shirt off his back. These traits along with his charming and outgoing personality are just a few of the reasons why he was loved by so many and had the ability to befriend just about anyone he met. Jared will be sadly and painfully missed by those who knew him and loved him.

In addition to his parents he leaves two brothers, Frederick Gillis, IV and his wife Sydney of Hampton, Patrick Gillis and his wife Rachel of Dover, his niece and godchild, Amelia, his nephews Frederick V, and Connor, along with aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.

Jared, my first best friend. I miss you tremendously, cuz. For the past couple of days I have been living in memories of our childhood. Whenever we were going somewhere, I just remember asking my parents, can Jared come? Sure enough, you were down for the adventure, whatever that adventure may be; from kayaking, to jumping off bridges/cliffs, hiking, body surfing at Hampton Beach, racing each other, the list is endless. You were my partner in crime. It has brought me comfort witnessing the impact you have had on so many people. Jared, you have shared with us your passion for life, smile, contagious laugh, energy, and above all, your gigantic heart; and for that I will be forever grateful and think of you everyday. I love you. Rest easy, until we meet again

I remember playing basketball at HAJH after school and thats where I met Jared. I already knew Pat and at first only knew him as Pats little brother. Quickly we became friendly and from that time on it was always a pleasure to run into Jared. My condolences to the entire Gillis family.

I Had the privilege of coaching Jared when he played football with the Little Warriors. His smile and quiet resolve are things that stood out. When he broke his arm his reply to coach Steve was "I'll be back"
What Jared went on to accomplish is no surprise to those who knew him best.
On behalf of my self and my two son's we give our condolences to the Gillis family.

My big cousin,

I remember as a kid you, Freddie and Pat used to say whos that over there and Id shyly grin back and youd smirk over to the boys and add no that cant be, is that Ellie belly? Ellie belly full of jelly?? And Id pretend to not like the attention but we all knew I adored it. And then the three of you would break out in tune singing Ellie belly full of jelly as I fought the smile from growing bigger on my face.

I still adore you, we all do. Thank you for creating memories like this with me. I selfishly want more but Ill delight in the ones you gave me.

Love your little cousin,
Ellie

Jared Gillis

I only knew you for a short period of time but through our interactions I could tell you were a fun, loving, and genuine person. You and the rest of your family made me feel very welcomed and I felt a since of belonging, being the partner of your cousin Kaleigh, I saw the deep bond and love you two had; so to say you will be missed does not quite summarize it. Thank you for being so kind. My thoughts, prayers, and strength goes out to the family.

Jared was an enthusiastic student and a true joy to have in Sports Journalism his senior year at WHS. Im was thrilled to see him return to coach basketball and give back to his community. Its a true testimony to his character. He was kind and loyal, and embodied the Warrior spirit. My deepest condolences to his family, friends, players, and all who knew him.

Jared was a little brother I admired.
His passion, his drive and his happiness inspired everyone that he met including me. As his older brother I always admired him.
When we were little we used to talk about sports. That was something we bonded over. Wether we were playing 45s or rummy or as a family we enjoyed that precious time together.
Having a brother is like having a built in best friend. I treasured him as such. I never thought I would be saying goodbye to my brother when we still had so many more memories to make. I will always tell Connor, Amelia and Freddie about you and share stories and memories from when we were younger. Please keep an eye on them.
This isnt goodbye this is until we meet again. Wait at the gates of paradise for us. We love you Jared

Love you so much!
