He was charming, outgoing, charismatic, loyal and thoughtful. Jerrad would do anything for a friend. He enjoyed his career at CGI working in marketing and recruiting.

    I did not know Jerrad, however one Christmas Day in 2010, I went for a walk in the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary, and found the bench with his plaque, covered with a beautiful garland and a shot glass of whiskey (?) on top. I took a couple of photos. I’ve been back to the Bird Sanctuary after the flood, and it seems that area was damaged quite severely, so I was just thinking that bench might have been washed away as well. If so, and if you would like photographs of the bench, please let me know and I can send them to you.
