1973 - 2018
Jeramy Louis Evans was unexpectedly called back home to his Father in Heaven on March 1, 2018, as a result of an apparent pulmonary embolism. To all of his family it was a shocking, bitter tragedy. We weep for our loss of this loving, kind, and energetic presence in our lives, but we honor his memory and influence.
He lived with amazing energy and enthusiasm.
He was born on August 6, 1973, in Salt Lake City and attended Beacon Heights Elementary School, Hillside Junior High School, Highland High School and the University of Utah, where he graduated with a Bachelors degree.
During all of his school years, and throughout his life, he loved athletics, for the physical challenge and competition, but mostly for the comradery and friendships, including his lifelong friendship with "the fellas" from Highland High. He played and coached football, rugby, and racquet ball, and loved water skiing, snowmobiling, motor cycle riding, camping, and being anywhere with friends. Wherever he was, that is where the action was. He lived life to the fullest. It takes a real man to coach a Polynesian rugby team by day and be in the cast of the Utah Opera Company's Aida by night and comfortably know and love everyone in the cast and on the team on a first name basis.
He earned his Eagle Scout Award. He served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Argentina Bahia Blanca Mission where he mastered and learned to love Spanish. In his work and daily activities there was seldom a day when he did not find an opportunity to speak Spanish.
He excelled in every job he had. He had a genuine love for every person. Whether he sold cars, portable toilets, fast food, limousine services, private investigations, or insurance, his boundless energy and enthusiasm for his work and affection for all he met made him loved and successful.
He leaves behind the love of his life, his precious wife, Erica Hansen Evans, his daughters, Romney Rae and Khloe, and stepdaughter Victoria, who in a few short years blessed him with a life time of love and happiness. He is also survived by his grandfather, J W Child, parents William T. and Jan Child Evans, brothers William J. Evans, and Nathan S. Evans (Jocelyn), and sisters Dawn Dunham (Robert), Amanda Miller (Clint), and Kathryn Pendleton (Daniel), and 16 nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Joan Spratley Child and grandparents Richard L. and Alice T. Evans.
We express sincere gratitude for his employer, Alpha Warranty Services, for their tender and gracious help in returning his body from Georgia, where Jeramy died on a business trip. His coworkers nationwide have established a GoFundMe account for Jeramy's family.

Jeremy was our neighbor in Syracuse but soon became a friend. We were both shocked and saddened by the news of his passing. He had a way of making everyone feel welcomed. He was definitely the life of the party! Not only did he want to have a good time, he made sure everyone else was to. He's smile, mischievous sparkle in his eyes, sense of humor and zest for life will greatly be missed. Much love to Jeremy and his loved ones. May God be with you.

I'm deeply saddened by the loss of such an amazing man and friend. One of my favorite memories was performing a Blues Brothers skit together at Highland HS. Jeremy's contagious smile, authentic personality, and genuine concern for others will be missed. May your sweet family find peace and solace during this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

I loved any chance I had to talk with Jeramy when I was at his parent's home. Jeramy had a gift of making you feel like he was a friend and that he was genuinely interested in you, We will all miss your engaging smile. We love you.

This is such sad news. Jeremy was a wonderful friend of mine from high school and I would see him from time to time at our kids' gymnastics studio and around town. To say he was warm and friendly doesn't begin to describe what it was like to be talking to him. He was one of the kindest and most unassuming people I've ever known with the happiest smile and the biggest heart. He loved his children so dearly and spoke of them with such pride. My heart goes out to them, his wife and the rest of his family who lost him way too soon.

I met Jeremy while performing with Aida. Because we have the same last name, I started calling him cousin, and had some great laughs about that. People kept asking if we were really related, and one of us would say if you go back far enough we probably are. He was always smiling and goofing around, and I really enjoyed performing with him. Lots of love and prayers to your family.
