There is a Facebook group dedicated to Jarrett's memory, which states the following:
Jarrett Lane, 22, was a senior civil engineering student who was
valedictorian of his high school class in tiny Narrows, Virginia, just
30 miles from Virginia Tech. His high school put up a memorial to Lane
that included pictures, musical instruments and his athletic jerseys.
Lane played the trombone, ran track, and played football and basketball
at Narrows High School. "We're just kind of binding together as a
family," principal Robert Stump told the AP. Lane's brother-in-law
Daniel Farrell called Lane fun-loving and "full of spirit." "He had a
caring heart and was a friend to everyone he met," Farrell said. "We
are leaning on God's grace in these trying hours."
