Jared Alan Glenn, 34 years old of Roseville, MI
Born: February 13, 1985, Rochester, NY
Died: October 15, 2019, Detroit, MI

When obituaries say someone was the nicest guy ever, they’re normally exaggerating: in Jared’s case it’s 100% the truth. He legitimately cared for (and remembered) everyone he met and when he smiled at you, it was impossible not to smile back.

Whether people knew him through St. Clare of Montefalco, Ferry Elementary, Brownell, Grosse Pointe North, Macomb Academy, Kroger, Outback, the Williams Syndrome Foundation or from just being out and about, his beaming smile brought joy to everyone he met and will live forever in the memories of his family and friends. His generosity and heroism continue on as he was able to help many more people through his donation to Gift of Life.

Jared lived a life full of joy and he left behind lessons everyone should live by:
• Smile at strangers
• Tell people you love them
• Tell people they are beautiful
• Be kind to everyone you meet
• Dance and sing, often
• Be more selfless
• Be a light in a dark world

He is survived by his mother, Sarah Jantz, father, Mark Glenn; siblings, Meghan Glenn, Allison Glenn, Jessica Hustoles, and Evan Glenn; his grandmother, Joan McNanney, step-father, Andrew Jantz, extended siblings Anthony Jantz (Brittany), and Jamie Zack and a host of beloved cousins, aunts and uncles. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, John Glenn, Juaneva (Moore) Glenn and William McNanney and his aunt, Susan McNanney.

In lieu of flowers, donations are being accepted for the Jared Glenn Memorial Fund at the Williams Syndrome Foundation which played such an Important roll in his life.

We at Pewabic Pottery were so saddened to hear this happened to the family of a student. From the reports he was a wonderful man. I wish our paths had crossed.
Having lost a family member to this kind of violence, I understand how hard this is to bear. As hard as it is to imagine, someday the pain will be less, than the feelings of just remembering dear Jared and the fun times you had. I hope for you all that those sweet memories help carry you through these days.

To Anthony, Brittany, Sarah and the entire Jantz & Glenn families, please accept my deepest sympathy of the loss of our beloved Jared. The mass this morning was beautiful. Thank you all for sharing dear Jared with us.

I wanted so badly to make it for the visitation. I am completely in shock that the world has lost such a loving, generous, fun-loving person. I knew Jared from St. Joan, and saw him out and about so often. He truly was “everybody’s best friend”. My brother, who volunteered at SJA before I did, also remembers him fondly and we are both so saddened by this loss. I have so many pictures from those times, I’m just unsure where they are :(

I'm very sorry for what happened to Jared. I wish things had been very different. I met Jared while at karaoke on probably a Friday or Saturday night a few years ago. He'd been with us, my friends and I at Friends Tavern, at the start of the night of his incident. He was in very good spirits. He got in a few songs with us, then left around midnight or shortly after. I was shocked to learn of his incident when I got up the next morning. My love and condolences to Jared's family. Being a widow of a cancer victim who met a very quick end, I know what you're going through.

I was checking on the obituary of my niece, Mary Szymanski (she passed away October 7), and stumbled upon your beautiful tribute to Jared. I was deeply touched by the description of him and found myself wishing he had been my friend. He seemed like such a special person. Although I never had the pleasure of meeting him, please know that I will be keeping Jared, his family and his many friends in my prayers.
