I met Jeremy a couple of weeks ago, just for about an hour. I found him a man as full of life as you could wish; engaging, confident, eloquent and quick to laugh. I looked forward to working with him. Today he was declared missing following the blasts in Sharm al-Sheikh.

He wasn’t a friend – he was barely an acquaintance – but I’m still sad, and if he doesn’t return I shall miss him.

    So sad when a lovely young life full of promise is just snuffed out by people believing the lies of the deceiver. I feel that God’s heart must be breaking over his creation. He made us to love him and each other and look at what we;ve done.

    I knew Jeremy in school days travelling on the bus together each day. He was good friends with my sister at the time. Im deeply saddened to hear of this news. You never think things like this will touch you, until they do. My thoughts go out to his family and friends at this time.

    He was my friend. So very full of life. “I’m just me, I’m Jez!”. So true and so sadly missed. x

    I’ve just seen this blog from google. Jez was one of my bestest friends who i’ve known since Uni. This is truely the worst thing I have ever known to happen. I miss him so much. So much. xxx

    Jeremy and I were friends through primary and secondary school along with many others that enjoyed being around him. I was absolutely shocked to hear the news when it happened, I did not think it was real or true that this could happen to an old school friend. Jeremy was smart, fun and had a great character. I lost touch with him as everyone’s lives go in different directions by the time you get to Uni, but I will remember him without question. I hope his Mum & Dad plus brothers are well and also have some comfort that so many people liked Jeremy.

    Just re-stumbled across this blog. Found it on Google years ago!

    He’s still sorely missed, my legend of a big brother.
