Our Story

After the loss of our son Jarrod Lee Klein, we formed Just Love and Kindness in his memory,  our entire family has been devastated at this senseless, meaningless, and preventable tragedy.   Through our loss and grief, we could not allow Jarrod's death to be in vain, and as a family, we are committed to making a difference in Texarkana.  We know we can't save them all, but we can sure try.

Our Current Activities:

  • Serve as a support system for the Texarkana, Arkansas, Police Department Pride Academy
  • Plan to support the Texarkana, Texas, Police Department H&P (when it becomes operational)
  • Speaks with Bowie County Juvenile Probation participants 
  • Support individual needs of youth, veterans, and other community members on a case by case basis

Our Family

Our Mission

The aim of Just Love & Kindness is to promote the development of young people, veterans, and the forgotten and underserved members in our society in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential, as individuals, and as responsible citizens, as members of the community. It is not only the family that is "affected" when our loved ones depart from us, whether they are lost to the streets or have gone home to Heaven. So many people sent cards, letters, flowers, calls, and texts, each of them was deeply affected too. As a family, we do not want anyone to endure this type of pain, heartbreak, and loss. As a society, we believe we can all do better.

Our Veteran

Jarrod's grandfather, Henry Klein aka Poppie, was a Veteran of the U.S. Army and served in Germany during WWII. What he taught us about respecting our service members and their sacrifices is freedom is never free, someone paid the ultimate price for our freedoms and we must revere those who answered the call to serve. 

Poppie had pet names for all the grandkids, and Jarrod was affectionately referred to as Bunkbunk.  Our nickname for him was Pookie.  We miss them both.

Till we reunite.
