I had the extreme pleasure of working where Evan lived and he quickly became like family. He is one of the sweetest men I have ever met. He made my day so much better and he will be strongly missed. My deepest sympathy goes out to all those that knew him! Rest easy my friend, until we meet again.

To the family of Evan Jennings,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I met your father at Forest Park because he sat at the dinner table with my dad, who passed away in March. He was such a sweet and caring man and often checked on my dad to make sure he was eating well. May the Peace of God be with your family during this time of grieving.
