Jared Allen Wetmore 46, died unexpectedly on Saturday morning, July 6, 2019, surrounded by his family during our 29th annual Wetmore camping Ruckus in South Lincoln, Vt. He loved family and cherished our time together, especially in Lincoln. As the youngest sibling, Jared left us with many special memories. He never missed a chance to give a massive bear hug to let you know how much you were loved by him. Jared’s passing is a very dark cloud over our lives but with faith and our memories we know the sun will shine through.
Jared was born August 8, 1972, in Middlebury, Vt., the son of John Allen Wetmore and Laurie (Bourdon) Wetmore. He was a graduate of Middlebury Union High School Class of 1990 and continued his education at VTC receiving an associate's degree in computer science. Jared began working for Computer Alternatives in Middlebury and then moved to Rhode Island to continue working as an IT professional for numerous companies including Hasbro Toys, Alexion Pharmaceuticals and most recently as a private consultant for regional and national companies.
It is impossible to sum up Jared’s life in a few short words. Anyone who knew him would agree that he enjoyed life fully. He was so proud of his boys, Zachary and Nathan, and participated in all their interests and celebrated their accomplishments. He and his loving partner, Alyssa, built a life together and brought their five boys together as a family. He embraced being a devoted father. Jared was an Eagle Scout and enjoyed camping and traveling. In recent years, together with his boys, he assembled an impressive and extensive Boy Scout patch collection. While Jared’s journey was sometimes challenging and hectic, he was happiest surrounded by his family and friends.
He is survived by his mother Laurie B. Wetmore, of Middlebury, by his two sons, Zachary and Nathan Wetmore both of North Smithfield, Rhode Island, and their grandparents Diana and Richard Ellis, mother Rebecca Ellis and her siblings, by Alyssa Stevenin and her children Riley, Aiden and Zachary and her father Ron Stevenin, by his siblings David Wetmore and wife Joyce and children Rebecca (Nuwt), Chris (Mari) and Allyson (Ryan), Lynda Bushman and husband Robert and children Benjamin, Louise (Shawn) and Nicholas, by his brother-in-law Rick Lowd, and wife Deborah and several aunts and uncles and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Jared was predeceased by his father, John Allen Wetmore, his sister Kelly Lowd and Carol Stevenin.
