I can only say I care.
Jeremy was a great friend and coworker, I have had the pleasure of working with Jeremy for a little over a year at the Department of Health and we are definitely missing his presence. Our condolences to his entire family and close friends. We will continue to keep you in our prayers.
Jeremy was My Neighbor for almost 10 years. I can only think of him as a Sweet, Dear Young Friend. kind, considerate and always there with a Welcoming smile. My Sincere condolences to Jeremy’s Parents, siblings and family. Rest in Peace Dear Boy.
I am so very sorry for your loss and I’m also sorry I’m so late with this condolence. I was the kid that lived across from the Kuttruffs on Yager rd. in TN. He was my best friend from the age of 7 to around 12 and I always wanted to tell him how sorry I was I missed his last week or two in TN. I was young and didn’t know how to deal with the thought of my best friend moving so I just avoided him and I never got to apologize for that. I never spoke to him again after he left TN. I’ll always remember the fun we had playing at that house. I spoke to Mark (a friend of ours from up the road who moved in after you guys moved out) and he sent me a photo of the old chicken coop in the barn that was our make shift club house way back when and it still had the old James Bond spy numbers we painted on the door as kids. That was about 40 years ago now. I pray your family can find peace, I just wish I could have found him a bit faster, I would have liked to have this conversation with him.
I was digging through some old high school stuff then decided to look Jeremy up, then I found this unfortunate news. I played guitar with Jeremy when we were in school, and still play today. My condolences to the Kuttruff family.
Tracy and I offer our condolences to his family.
Jeremy was a fine neighbor and very friendly. His presence will be missed.
I have always loved Jeremy’s smile and ready laugh. When I think of Jeremy, I think of laughter, music, warm acceptance, and the way he was always interested and engaged in what I had to say whenever we would see each other. And the backdrop of my most recent memories is our family cottage on a peaceful lake with loving relatives all together. <3
I am saddened to learn of Jeremy passing , I worked for Jeremy in 2018 for 3 months.
He was the most kind of people I ever met in my life. RIP Jeremy you are missed.
