Jared packed more into his 22 years of life than anyone could imagine and left without any regrets.

People have described him in words such as humorous, loving, vibrant, smiling, compassionate, integrity, kind, passionate, advocate, generous and fun. He was all these things and more. He was a 'big strong kid' in both size and spirit. He is remembered for his words both written and spoken, as Jared would say himself, "it's all good." He truly was a gift to all who knew him.

Jared was the current Winona State Student Body president and board member MSUSA, past Winona County DFL Treasurer, college democrats / DFL supporter and president of WSU Price is Right Club.

He graduated from Tartan High School in 2004.

He was active in DECA as chapter vice president and state/international winner/participant.

He was also in student council, National Honor Society, football, wrestling, track, P.E.B. and was an academic letter winner.

He is survived by his parents, Bruce and Char Stene (Kanski); sister, Caitlin Stene; grandparents, Al and Barb Stene, Fred Kanski and Vicki and Ray Karras; aunts and uncles, Colleen and Arnold Rodakowski, Charles Kanski, Chris and Becky Kanski, Greg Stene, Dennis and Barb Stene, Sheila Hoium and Lisa and Jeff Wing; and many cousins and dear friends.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to the family.
