Jarret was born Aug. 8, 1989 in Nocona to Jeff Duke and Tammi (Nichols) Daniels. He was a genius musician, able to play any instruments he picked up. He loved to sing and performed in several one-act plays in high school. As an adult he was active in theater in New Mexico, were he was an instant hit. Jarret attended Cisco Junior College and was a drum major his senior year. He loved music and he loved people.
Jarret had a smile you could never forget and eyes that showed you his soul. He loved everyone and wanted to move to Hollywood and pursue an acting career but his life was cut short. He lost so many dear friends that his heart was filled with pain and yet he continued to be someone that you could turn to in a time of need.
Jarret left this world doing what he did every single day, helping someone else in need as an organ donor. He hated the thought of someone in need and not being able to help. He never in his 29 years met a stranger, never pushed away a needy hand and never asked for much of anything out of this life, except to help others.
He is preceded in death by his granny, Mary Wells and uncle, Dean Duke.
Jarret is survived by his dad Jeff Duke and wife Lisa, Waynoka, OK; mother, Tammi Daniels and husband Ikey, Graham; his other mom, Pam Campbell and husband Alan, Bowie; brothers, Justin Duke and wife Samantha, Waynoka, OK, and Jacob Rogers, Big Springs; step-brothers, Matthew and Brandon Blevins; someone he thought of as his sister, Ashley Campbell; nephews, Dalton Lee Duke and Jackson Ray Duke, Kansas; his sweet little nieces, Halo Grayce Duke, MacKynna Faye Reed and Novalee Rayne Reed all of Waynoka, OK; grandparents, Paul Wells, Montague, and Barbara Atteberry, Nocona; a very special friend, Josh Jefferson; and numerous cousins, aunts, uncles, other relatives and friends.
Jarret was passionate about so many things and you weren’t going to change his mind, and that just made us love him more.
