Jaiden’s family described him as being an “energetic, loving and playful 3-year-old with a witty sense of humor and an appetite for fun and adventure."

They are still in shock by the whole ordeal and they can't believe what happened to the sweet little boy.

Our thoughts go out to the family. We are so sorry that the family has had to deal with such a traumatic death. There are no words that can bring this family comfort and our hearts are completely broken and are aching for the family. We hope that this family gets some peace in their time of struggle.
