Words cannot adequately describe the loss felt by those who knew Jarold Callahan. Jarold was an active alum, strong supporter, and true friend to our department. Our hearts go out to his family at this difficult time. A Celebration of Life will be held at 10 AM Friday, December 29th at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Callahan family. Jarold was a proud alum of the department and provided unwavering support and leadership.

On behalf of the entire Cowboy family, we express our sincere condolences on the passing of OSU/A&M Regent Jarold Callahan.

Jarold was a fierce advocate for higher education and changed thousands of students' lives through his leadership on the OSU/A&M Board of Regents. From his years as a faculty member to his decades of dedication to the agriculture industry, Jarold lived by the Cowboy Code and always worked to do what was right — even if it wasn't easy.

He lived a life of character and inspired all of us who knew and had the honor of working with him.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Jennifer, and the Callahan family, and we hope the peace of the season will provide them comfort.

Jarold was a true Cowboy, and we will miss him.
