Obituary for Jared Gutierrez

Jared  Gutierrez
Jared Nathan Gutierrez

Jared was a man awed by the depth and complexity of the world, a world that weighed so heavily on his heart that it finally broke his spirit.

Jared Nathan Gutierrez, 32, of Boulder, CO, died July 11, 2018 after a long and difficult battle with depression. In happier times, Jared thrived on sharing his wisdom and laughter with his students, who could feel his passion for teaching social studies and AP U.S. History at Boulder High School. He transformed his students’ lives in a profound way, and his compassion and vibrancy radiated like no other. He inspired through kindness and understanding and cared very deeply about each and every student. When arriving for class, Jared would have them look out the window at the majestic Flatirons he loved so much. He recognized the importance and beauty of the mountains and didn’t want it taken for granted.

Some of Jared’s favorite things were soccer, snowboarding, golf, music, and travel to Europe as a chaperone for his students. His passionate spirit and unique perspective of the world enriched the lives of many friends, and his devotion to sharing casual, fun family time was just as important. Simply going on mountain treks and flying kites with his mom, brother, sister and long-time girlfriend-turned-wife would bring joy. Jared also developed an amazingly strong bond with his late Siberian cat, Jinx.

Jared is survived by his mother, Grace Karnowka; his father, Jerry (Debi) Gutierrez; his step-brother, Brock (Melissa) Wilson; his sister, Kala Gutierrez; his brother, Andrew Karnowka; and Lauren Grady, widow of their 12-year-long relationship and marriage.
