Jerad was born December, 23, 1989, in Madison, the son of Larry Lutz and Florenda Watters. Married to Sarah (Phelan) Lutz. He enjoyed the freedom of his job, meeting new people, and looking for new places to fish. The job was unsettling for most but he enjoyed sharing the stories of his different experiences he had on the way. The times he treasured most was sitting by the water with a pole in his hand spending time with family, grilling food, frying fish and telling his crazy stories. He cherished his growing DIY taxidermy insect collection, that inspired him to start his magical fairy garden. He was known for being brave, adventurous, a bargain hunter, generous, loving, helpful, great love for animals, brightening any room he walked into, and also a great twerker lol, upon his passing Jerad left one last selfless gift of organ donations that will help save multiple lives.
