Venomin James Drummer Dies of Cancer.
VENOMIN JAMES drummer Jared Koston passed away of cancer on Tuesday, June 1 at his home in Madison, Ohio surrounded by his family and friends. He was 40 years old.
“I want to thank everyone that has helped him with this fight,” says Jared‘s wife Michele Koston. “The fight is over and now he does not have to worry about all the pain it has brought him.”
“I will never understand why my soulmate, my best friend, my husband, my lover, and the father of our two great kids is not with me.
“This is so hard to know that when I go to sleep in bed he will not be there.
“He should never have got cancer. He would still be here with me.
“I miss my baby so much.
“This can’t be real.
“I want to wake up from this bad nightmare.”
Michele is in immediate need of financial support to help pay for the home hospice care and funeral arrangements. The Kostons have four children, no health insurance or employment.

“Michele stayed by Jared‘s side right until the end,” says Auburn Records president Bill Peters. “It was incredible what she did for him. The love they have between each other is very special. She stayed strong throughout the duration of Jared‘s illness for both him and her children. She is an amazing woman.
“I am very happy Michele was able to bring Jared home from the hospital in time to be at peace with his family. This is where he wanted to be.
“Jared was fortunate enough to have the love and support of many family and friends by his side right up until the end. I was there with him, too, and could tell he was at peace when he left us.
