Sorry I haven’t updated in a few days; I’ve been swamped with work. While I was working today, I got several texts informing me of horrible news…
Chris Jarvis, a football player who I went to school with, passes away this morning.
Even though I didn’t personally know Chris, our school was small and I knew of him. I can’t describe the emotions I am feeling about his passing and I can only imagine the grief and pain of his family and friends.
In high school, everyone remembers him as having a glittering personality. Chris always joked around and made everything fun. He was open to everyone and made the idea of the Lasallian Brotherhood have true meaning.
With his passing, the only thing we can do now is keep him and his family in our thoughts and prayers. I kindly ask of you reading this to pray for him as well.
Here are a few commemorations that people have posted on his Facebook wall.
“From football to kairos, from everything in between, you were always a great friend and a better person. The world lost a little bit of its light with you not being here. RIP, I love you and will always remember you.”
– Garrett Roland
