Jeremy had a love for life….Never Failing. Jeremy’s truest loves in his life were his family and friends. His nephews were his life, and he thought the world of them. Jeremy taught people to live every day as it were their last. After Jeremy’s dual transplant…HE LIVED!!! Truly living life to the fullest, from camping in Colorado to Santa Fe, NM with his best friend Kris, to sitting on the beach at sunrise…just him and his Bible. Jeremy knew God and has been given the greatest homecoming.
Jeremy loved his Mama, and she will be forever missing a part of her heart now that Jeremy has made his trip home.
Jeremy and his Daddy cherished their every afternoon lunch dates as he got off from work, and his Dad was leaving for work. Dad will forever miss and cherish the talks about Jeremy’s love of fixing planes.
Jeremy opened the eyes of so many to music, movies, shows (particularly “Game of Thrones”), and the sheer love of life itself.
