Jeremy you were such an amazing guy. Always made time to help out everyone else even if it meant you were short on sleep or money. You took the time to listen when I needed a friend, and I tried to do the same for you. When I heard about your accident I was so mad. I wanted to see you again and be able to thank you for helping me through those hard times. I was hoping you were going to have gotten some of the things YOU wanted too. I'm so sorry honey. Dave, hugs to you guys and the rest of your family. My thoughts are with you guys. Xoxo -J

He was an awesome guy who will be missed a lot by a lot of people. He was taken way to young! He worked for me at Culvers for many years. He was just there taking down my awnings. He always was there to help whenever you needed him. He always knew how to make you laugh. I will miss you Jeremy! My thoughts and prayers to your family.

Mel Tuttle left a message on July 13, 2013:

To Jeremy's family. Jeremy touched so many people. I don't think he knew just how many people loved and cared about him. He would help anyone in need even if he just met you. He was always there for my family whether it was to fix our 4 wheeler, bring us wood or help Heather at Culver's. He was a sweetheart who will be missed. I and my family are proud to have known him and will miss him dearly.

Rachel Combs left a message on July 10, 2013:

I won't ever forget whenever we crossed paths you would always take the time to come up to me and ask if I still remembered you.My answer was the same every time and you would say that you knew I was going to say that.I would then remind you that one could not ever forget that smile! Saddened of the thought of not crossing paths again soon.
