Jarrett Michael Powell, 29, of Belvidere, IL was taken from us too soon on November 8, 2020 in Marengo, IL. Jarrett was born on July 9, 1991 to Martin Powell and Laura (Pyrcioch) Durham. Jarrett graduated from Belvidere North Highschool and shortly after, began working as a diesel mechanic and then started working for Johnson Paving as a Teamsters Union Truck Driver. Jarrett loved riding his motorcycle and driving diesel trucks, but especially his orange pickup truck. He liked to shoot guns, drink Busch Light, play slot machines, and host barbecues and cookouts.
