Jeremy was a member of the Christian Union Church. He attended school at Indian Lake where he played soccer and football. He was a member of the Presidential Academic Society. He also attended Delphos Jefferson and Vantage Vocational where he studied machining. He had worked as a precision machinist in Ottoville. He was an avid fisherman and spent hours fishing with family and friends alike. He also loved camping and always combined his love of fishing with camping whenever possible. He was an extremely talented trumpet and guitar player with a natural ability to play anything by ear. He was always there to lend a hand if someone needed help with carpentry and other home repairs which he learned from a young age working beside his grandpa. He could fix anything mechanical from cars to computers. His absence will be felt and our love for him will endure.
