Jeremy was loved by many people, including his large extended family of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

At Maple Lake, Jeremy spent countless hours on the water, boating and connecting with friends and family. He enjoyed time spent around the bon fire and lake life. He had a passion for sports, including golf, softball, and fantasy football.

The love of his life was his beautiful daughter, Delaney Deitz (9). Jeremy instilled in Delaney a love of summer at the lake. They spent hours together playing in the water, fishing, playing board games and cards, and watching movies. Jeremy especially enjoyed teasing Delaney with the fish they caught together at the end of the dock.
