Jeremy's favorite activities were spending time with his family, and attending their sporting events and activities. He was very proud of them; they were the joy of his life. Jeremy was an avid sports fan and diehard Vikings fan and really enjoyed ice fishing.
Jeremy was a wonderful, fun loving father, son, brother and friend, with a gentle soul and kind heart. He touched the lives of many and will be missed.
