Dear Leah and girls,
I was so sorry to hear of Jarod's passing, my heart goes out to you. Although I knew you both in high school my most recent memory of Jarod was seeing him in the MRI waiting room at Penn. He had the same smile and positive attitude I remember from school and he was all smiles talking about you and your girls. Sending you my deepest sympathy.

I was so saddened to hear of Jarod’s passing. While I lost touch the Finlay Family after they left Montoursville, I have such great memories of Jarod from growing up. He was always so kind and funny and could build some of the best snow forts around. I remember lots of fun times at the house on Cherry Street and will never forget him. Keeping the entire Finlay family, along with Jarod’s friends and colleagues, in my thoughts and prayers.
With deepest sympathies,

Jarod and I worked together for several years in the Radiation Oncology Department at Penn Medicine. I found him to be an intelligent and kind man, a pleasure to work with in multidisciplinary team projects. Great sense of humor! Keeping his family and friends in my prayers.

I have known Jarod since graduate school in U of Rochester. I went to UPenn and had another opportunity to work with him. I always remember his smile and quite optimistic mind toward either scientific question or life. He is a great physicist and teacher. I saw him last year 2017 in AAPM. I still couldn't believe he leave us. I will remember all the fun memory he brought to us.
It was such as sad day to hear about Jarod's passing. But at the same time, i was so happy to know him and to have spent time getting to know him. Jarod was humble, kind, curious, friendly, responsible and unwavering. I will remember scientific discussions with him fondly, and wish all the best for his family and friends. His impact in the world will be lasting, and his role in education, research and cancer therapy, remains impactful.
