Hello NPORA,

It is with great sadness that I share this information with you. packie88 (Jared Thomas) passed away this weekend.

With okay from the family, I am posting here to let NPORA know we have lost a long time member.

Carri - Thank you for letting everyone know on NPORA. You guys provided him with unbelievable support. Thanks for being a friend.


Here is the story from a local website: http://sammamish.kom...e-tricks-sr-202

I would like to ask that if you post here, please keep your negative comments to yourself. We all understand the risks and consequences, the only one who knows what happened that night isn't here to fend for himself, and that alone should say enough.

I would like to post my condolences to his friends and family, it truly is a loss to lose someone so young. RIP fellow pathy owner.

I never really knew Jared, but my sincerest appologies go out to his family and friends. Occasions like this really make one stop and take a minute to be grateful for what they have.

Having met Jared in person many times, I can say that he was a good guy, a lot of fun to wheel with and in general, to just be around.

He started out green here at NPORA. He jumped into the off road community with both feet and refused to give up even when things were not going the way he wanted. I spoke to him a lot on the phone before he knew much, but through the help of the community, he was becoming a valued, contributing member for us all.


packie88 will be missed, there is no doubt about that.


My condolences go out to his family and friends




Rest In Peace Jared

Rest in peace, Jared.

:ohmy: Dam.. that is sad... he lived right down the road from me and we were just gonna finally meet up, he just PM'd me the day before this happened... Super bummed.... its a beautiful stretch of road where he was.. he was probably having a blast, i know Ive let loose there many times.. i'll give him some thoughts when I pass it from now on.
We should def do the Mr Jim run at manastach ridge to honor him.

Damn, damn and damn it!!

I never met him, but we had conversed enough to where he is not a stranger. While I'm not sure what exactly happened, I do know that it ended his significant potential and that saddens me greatly.

My condolences to the family and friends that have to make peace with this tragedy. RIP Jared, you will be missed.

whats really shaking, to me, is that just 3 days ago I was thinking I would get to meet him wheeling @ evans. neither of us ended up going but when I think about it like that, it hits home a little more. if you know what I'm trying to say...
Online here I thought he was a good guy. I am sad the loss.

additonaly, If he had any military service in his past he may be eligible for military honors at his funeral. If his family choses this (and if he was prior air force) I would kindly do the honor of the service.

Tragic news. Absolutely awful.

My sympathy for his family and close friends. It is always so difficult to lose someone so young and full of life.

He will be missed around here without a doubt.

Very sorry to be reading this, no one deserves to go so young. Though I didn't know him I'm sad to see him go. May his memory live on forever, and I give my apologies to his family. Pat
