Jerome - Jared Thomas McKay, 24, of Jerome, passed away Friday July 14, 2017, at his home.

He was born June 26, 1993, in Twin Falls, Idaho, the son of Thomas and Carol McKay. Jared was raised in Jerome and graduated from Jerome High School in 2011. Then attended the Northwest Lineman College in Meridian, Idaho, where he graduated with a 4.0 and started working at Eureka Construction as an apprentice lineman.
