26, of New Philadelphia, if he could speak today, would say that the devastating effects of drug addiction finally beat him, despite his efforts to overcome. He passed away as a result of losing that battle on Friday, Sept. 7, 2012. Born in Aultman Hospital at Canton on June 20, 1986, he was the son of Cynthia Ann (Berisford) and Richard A. Jenkins and the late Gary Charles Fisher. After completing his education at New Philadelphia High School and graduating from Buckeye Career Center, he continued his formal education at Kent State University where he obtained his Associates Degree in Computer Technology. Jeremy continued to further his education obtaining multiple Microsoft certifications. He has worked at a variety of companies serving as a "contracted computer geek". When Jeremy crossed a threshold, he filled up a room with his loud voice and unique energy. Jeremy was a ball of fire and a force to be reckoned with. He was never satisfied to blend into the background. From a very early age, Jeremy was participating in baseball, soccer, roller blading, and skate boarding. He enthusiastically played drums in several punk rock bands. He was an avid Columbus Blue Jackets fan. Anyone who spent much time with Jeremy walked away wondering which was louder, the drum set or Jeremy! One of a kind, Jeremy marched to his own beat.
He will be deeply missed by his parents, Cynthia (Gary) Jenkins of New Philadelphia; his brothers, Michael R. and Nathan D. Fisher, both of New Philadelphia, and Matthew T. (Brooke) Fisher and their son, Colt, of Japan; his maternal grandparents, Thomas and Maxine Berisford of Moundsville, W.Va.; step-brothers, Matthew and Aaron Jenkins, both of New Philadelphia; step-sister, Keri (Duke) Dailey of Nashport, Ohio.; step-grandma, Rhoda Jenkins of New Philadelphia; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
