In the year 2015, Jared became a Junior Vice Chief in the community of Cumberland House. They were promised money to provide equipment and activities for the community, but nothing was given, so the Jr Chief, and Jr Vice Chief Jared started to do activities without Chief and Council's help. They created many things out of nothing. They ended up buying a gaming business, which lasted 2 years, then the new Mayor shut them down with no explanation why. One of the Greatest accomplishments and title Jared achieved, was becoming a Big Brother (nickname: Brother Bear) to the youth of his community.
