Jared Finnegan of Chelmsford
He is survived by his devoted wife Suzzanne Finnegan, who lovingly supported him throughout the years and stood by his side.
Born in Lowell, he was the son of the late Blair and Joan Finnegan. He graduated from Chelmsford High School with the class of 1969, and Norwich University with a B.S. in Science and Nutrition.
Jared retired from the Chelmsford Police Department after 20 years of service. While with the police department, he served as an undercover narcotics Detective working with the Drug Task Force.
In his early years, he was a Physical Education teacher for Chelmsford Public Schools. He enjoyed spending time with his friends and family at their home on Newfound Lake in New Hampshire, watching Patriots football, and taking his grandchildren to Disney World. He will fondly be remembered as larger than life, driving his big red pick- up truck, helping with home repairs, and mowing his lawn with a cold beer in his hand. He loved to torment car salesmen and convince his grandchildren that he was a cliff diver.
