Jeremy was one of those rare individuals who always viewed the world with a sense of wonder. He followed his heart and gave freely of it as well. To all he met and spent time with he will always be known as one of the kindest and gentlest of souls.
Life was a grand adventure and he wanted to drink every drop of amazement that the world had to offer. Always ready for what may be around the next corner with an open mind and with no prejudices. Spontaneous, funny and engaging are words often used to describe him.
He found his passion in cycling not long after having suffered a horrible skateboarding accident that destroyed one knee. Cycling strengthened him until he even decided to participate in the 4k for Cancer ride to benefit the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults. He set off from Baltimore in June, 2016 and finished the ride in Portland, OR in August. It was his proudest accomplishment and had continued to support the cause since then.
Irony is when one can ride 4000 miles and only suffer a flat tire, only to be struck down riding about 10 miles to get home.
A scholarship fund is being set up in his name by the Ulman Fund for Young Adults. Details forthcoming- please check www.4kforcancer.org for more information.
