Traveling was something he enjoyed.

The trip which stood out the most was when his godmother Barna flew him out to Denver. He saw the Bronco’s play on the 50 yard line, got a signed shirt and saw many other sights. He remained a Bronco fan until his older brother Josh became a Packers fan and he switched to the Vikings for some fun competition.
Jeremy was all about sports. He participated in baseball, wrestling, football, basketball, competition swimming, never passed a chance for Punt, Pass, and Kick. He sang in the boys chorus, played the trumpet and drum for the marching band in Boy’s Town. For all activities and competitions he never failed to place for that trophy or ribbon or medal. Jeremy loved coaching his son’s football team.
Jeremy always believed in Jesus Christ. He followed the Catholic faith until he was Confirmed. He spent years in AWANA’s and scouts.Jeremy eventually followed Christ teachings at Celebrate where his heart and soul found it’s home.
