Jarrett had an intense curiosity about how things worked in society, and how to improve on the status quo. He was a problem solver, inventor and dreamer. He was generous with his time, money, and friendship; he helped anyone in need. He was an avid reader (especially science fiction, fantasy, math and chess). He was an accomplished chess player and seemed to take a break from playing lately. His technical skills with computers was advanced as he built himself a state of the art system. He loved language and Latin, and was a member of the National Latin Honor Society. He went all the way through Boy Scouts to become an Eagle Scout. In a world that is so noisy, Jarrett was a listener. The Thinker Figure by Auguste Rodin reminds me of Jarrett contemplating the world.
