Jared Seth Caplin, 22, passed away on Tuesday, January 14, 2020. He was born on December 21, 1997 in Dallas, Texas to Alan Caplin and Jennifer Stout Caplin.
He was raised in Chiefland, FL and St. George, UT and graduated from Desert Hills High School. Jared was an aspiring YouTuber who spread inspiration to everyone he met and heard his story. His goal was to help inspire others through their difficult situations. “I just want people to be happy, no matter what,” he would humbly say with the brightest smile. He was a part of and loved by the Call of Duty community, creators, and professional gamers. He loved travelling with his father and did so throughout the country to support the COD community. Whether it was riding Tower of Terror or California Screamin’ at Disneyland or by performing his favorite songs by Justin Bieber at school, he was fearless. He loved music. Especially Justin Bieber’s songs. Other things that he loved were his Heavenly Father, Dr. Pepper, Sour Punch Straws, Reeses, PS4, Pokemon, singing, watching TV, movies, playing Dungeons and Dragons with his best friends, watching the Eagles and the Red Sox play, Basketball, enchiladas, hugs, making silly faces, children, hanging out with friends and laughing with his siblings and nephews. He loved spending with the people he loved most and getting to know people that he just met.
He is survived by a loving family: Alan (Dad), Jennifer (Mom), Brittani (Sister), Matthew (Nephew), Kaleb (Brother), Ruth (Sister-in-Law), Miles (Nephew), Tara (Sister), and a whole barrage of friends and people he influenced throughout his life.
