Jared Logan (Bear) Zess
July 13, 1984 - November 3, 2019

Jared was many things to many people. He was a loving and wonderful father, a proud brother, a humble son, an adoring grandson, a devoted cousin, a honorable nephew, and doting uncle. He could be a fierce competitor, a loyal and hard working employee, and a committed and life long friend. His constant smile and positive outlook, even in the toughest times, were hallmarks of his personality that we will always remember.

Jared passed away in his home on Sunday, November 3, 2019 following a long and difficult battle with cancer. Jared is part of a large and extended family, but in his immediate family, he leaves behind his three children, James (11), Skyla (6), and Logan (4); life/family partner, Rachel Reviczky; grandparents, Sam and Dianne Skogen, and Joyce Zess; parents, Rick Zess and Sue Bell, and his siblings, Lindsey and Kyle Zess.

Jared was a brave, strong and loving man. He was fiercely committed to his family and was determined to fight his cancer with everything he had in order to be there for his children. Sadly, after bravely enduring many surgeries, chemo and radiation, he suffered a sudden seizure in his home on Sunday from which he was unable to recover. He will be missed so very much by all.

There will be a Celebration of Life for Jared on Sunday, November 10 from 3-6 pm at the Thorncliffe/Greenview Community Association Hall. There will be a short, informal program followed by light refreshments.

I worked with Jared Zess at the Arriva Condominium when he was working for the security contractor, Beretta Protective. He was a very thoughtful person. A hard worker who was very proactive and took a lot of pride in his job. I wish him peace now

Last time i saw jared when he came our home to grab his daughter carry on bag, He had smile on face. We offer him to come inside, he said he has to go home to kids. he said he told kids that they all going to have pizza. thats why he could not stay. He was good father to his kids, thinking allways about them. We saw him as a kid. And then a grown man. Always smile on his face. He fought with this cancer but lost his battle. its so sad to see Jared lost his life to this cancer. You always going to be in our hearts. You are in heaven looking down.You are angle. God give the strength to whole family to go through this grief time. Big hug for family, we can not take your pain away. Please remember he is with god, not suffering anymore. hug again.
