  • Heartfelt sympathies for family and friends of Jeremy. Praying for peace and healing in the weeks/months to come.

  • Please accept our sincerest condolences. It was through Jeremy’s initiative with the space balloon project that my son Jack was introduced to engineering and my daughter was introduced to knots through a 4h club. We all experienced the space balloon trip as a family which we will never forget. My heart is broken for Pam and Megan and Michael and for Jeremy’s family. Please know that Jeremy made an impact on the life of my children and thus an impact on me. He will not be forgotten and his legacy lives on through the lives of countless others he impacted in his short time on this side of Heaven.

    Jeremy was an inspiration to all he came in contact with. He was a leader not only at work but also in his community. Jeremy strived to do his best at every thing he was working on. He was always looking for ways to improve not only himself but all those around him. He truly cared for others. We will deeply miss him.

    “Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.” 1 Thes 4:13-14
