In a separate put up, Juli shared a slideshow of pictures of Jarrid smiling extensively as he fished, hiked and hung out along with his youngsters.

Whereas Juli stays devastated over her husband’s loss of life, she wrote that Jarrid is not in “pain.”

“No more struggle. You are made complete and you are finally free. Suicide and depression fed you the worst lies, but you knew the truth of Jesus and I know you’re by his side right this very second.”

Juli went on to share that “suicide doesn’t get the last word.”

“I won’t let it. You always said, ‘Hope gets the last word. Jesus gets the last word.’ Your life’s work has led thousands to the feet of Jesus and your boldness to tell others about your struggle with anxiety and depression has helped so many other people feel like they weren’t alone.”

“YOU WERE an ANTHEM OF HOPE to everyone, baby, and I’ll do my best to continue your legacy of love until my last breath.”

In his last Twitter post, shared hours earlier than his loss of life, the daddy of two wrote, “Loving Jesus doesn’t always cure suicidal thoughts. Loving Jesus doesn’t always cure depression. Loving Jesus doesn’t always cure PTSD. Loving Jesus doesn’t always cure anxiety. But that doesn’t mean Jesus doesn’t offer us companionship and comfort.”

“He ALWAYS does that,” Jarrid added.

Previous to his loss of life, Jarrid made it his mission to assist these battling despair and psychological sickness.

In 2016, Jarrid based Anthem of Hope, a Christian group devoted to “amplifying hope for those battling brokenness, depression, anxiety, self-harm, addiction and suicide.”

Harvest Christian Fellowship has since launched an announcement mourning Jarrid’s loss of life on their web site.

“It is with the deepest sadness and shock that I have to report that Jarrid Wilson went to be with the Lord last night,” Senior Pastor Greg Laurie wrote. “At a time like this, there are just no words.”

“The Bible says, ‘There is a time to mourn.’ This is certainly that time.”

“Jarrid is survived by his wife Juli, his two sons, Finch and Denham, his mother, father, and siblings. Jarrid loved the Lord and had a servant’s heart. He was vibrant, positive, and was always serving and helping others.”

“Jarrid also repeatedly dealt with depression and was very open about his ongoing struggles. He wanted to especially help those who were dealing with suicidal thoughts,” Laurie wrote.

“Tragically, Jarrid took his own life.”

“Sometimes people may think that as pastors or spiritual leaders we are somehow above the pain and struggles of everyday people. We are the ones who are supposed to have all the answers. But we do not.”

“At times like this, we must remember that as Christians, we do not live on explanations but on promises. We fall back on what we do know, not on what we don’t know. We do know that Jarrid put his faith in Jesus Christ and we also know that he is in Heaven now,” Laurie concluded.

A GoFundMe has been created in hopes of elevating funds for his household. The web page has raised over $49,000.
