As Jeremy's first child I was only four when he passed away. I was to young to know, to young to understand but now I am 14 and I learned that he had a brother that cared and taught me that he was a great person and he loved nothing more then us and now I really am thinking I really have a family that has been missing from me and now I know that he still cared and that his part of the family was searching for us but I never cared. For I was to young to even remember what we did for fun, who played with me and that I had a father.

You were a great friend who I will miss a lot. We had many fun times together. I'll never forget what a great time we had going to broker training in New York for three weeks (with Dean Witter). We were buddies already and then to go on that trip together was awesome. I am so sorry for your family's loss.

I cannot find the words to express the sorrow I felt when we all lost you as a friend. Your generosity, support, and good advice was appreciated by all who knew you. My thoughts are with you and your family. You will be greatly missed.

Your friend,

We have had many fund times together, and some not so fun (cold calling at Merrill) I will always remember our crazy trips to Tahoe, you were a great person with a big heart and we will all miss you greatly buddy.

Peace be with your family through these difficult times.

My deepest sympathies go out to the Packwood and Therre families during this sad time. It was painful for me not to attend his memorial service. I wish I could have been there to remember Jeremy with all of you who loved him and shared time with him as I have.
There is a great deal I will miss about my friend Jeremy. Some I just didn’t understand, like his energetic appreciation for “serious metal” music, or his charmingly futile devotion to the Seahawks. But others were part of what made him great. I will miss his laugh which was sincere, easy to rouse, and contagious. I will miss the way he listened and spoke to people with great intent. When you had a conversation with Jeremy you knew he was listening carefully; he always made you feel like what you were saying was important. And, of course, I will miss his friendship above all.
Jeremy and I were friends for over 20 years. We met our freshman year at Northgate. He would be one of a few who, over the years, became a part of who I was, who we all were, as friends, as young adults and men. I will always remember with tremendous love and fondness all the moments we shared, together, with friends, and with family, that defined our young lives.

Dear Uncle Jim, Aunt Laurie, Kris, and the rest of Jeremy's family,
I am so sorry for your loss! You guys are in our prayers. I wish I would have known that Jeremy was a Hawks fan--would have loved to have dragged him to a game.
Love from Oregon,
Michelle, Craig, Michael & Katelynn
PS-thanks to whoever posted the pictures!

Jeremy my love,

I miss you each and every moment. We were the best of friends, the love of my life and soon to be my husband, Sept. 22, 2007. You called me Mrs. Packwood and said that we are already married in your heart and that the marriage certificate was just a piece of paper.

We met Dec. 21, 2006 and were inseperatable from the start. We seemed to have everything in common from our love for the outdoors to raising our children. We were also born the same year, exactly one month apart. Jeremy June 28, 1970 and Connie July 28, 1970.

We both liked to snow board and wake board. We spent time hiking, swimming, golfing, dining and the movies. We loved our date nights along with spending time with friends and family.

Jeremy was a devoted father and the boys went every where with us. There were Siemens Company events, Monterey Aquarium, Oakland Zoo, Manhattan Beach in LA, trips to the park, swimming/visiting at Grandparents and more. We were always on the go.

Jeremy and I wanted to help raise Taylor and Hayden playing sports and exeriencing the outdoor life that we loved. Hayden and I did the parent-tot swimming. Jeremy watched us and also Taylor in Tiny Tots.

I am also the soccer coach on Taylor's team. We spent all Summer at soccer clinics and our season is about to start. Plus, they loved going on simple hikes with us to often see deer, hawks and wild turkeys.

There's so much that we did along with just the simple things. Every night we would eat dinner together at the kitchen table, give the boys bubble baths, and I would read the boys a bed time story after daddy tucked them in and gave us all good night kisses.

Jeremy was also a friend and father to Amber and Marc. He was there with me to see Amber off to the Senior Ball, Senior Graduation Parties and Competitive Soccer Games. Amber just started College and is on the Soccer Team. We were looking forward to the first home game.

And Jeremy helped teach Marc to drive. They came home one time to tell me that Marc had gotten his first speeding ticket on his permit. Jeremy suggested that Marc should wait to tell me and Marc insisted. Saying that it's better to tell me upfront. Jeremy later told me that my kids know me all to well and that they love me.

Jeremy had once told me that we would get Amber and Marc through College, help raise Taylor and Hayden, and in the end, we would always have each other. Our lives had only just begun and in my heart, Jeremy was my husband.

There's so many found memmories. Please feel free to share and/or contact me. He was an incredible man with a beautiful heart. He touched mine so deeply and he will always be with me. I love you Jeremy, always and forever.

I'll miss you a great deal buddy. It's been a few months since we've hung out but I knew that no matter what, you'd be there to hang out or to talk. Thanks for all the wonderful memories and for helping me get to the next level with our old Guardian job. I'll miss going out to A's games with you and hearing your stories about your sons. You'll always be in my thoughts and prayers. I will always remember your for being a great friend and someone I could always count on.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Jeremy's family and friends at this time of sorrow. I hadn't seen him in years, but carry warm memories of the great person he was. Living out of the country, I unfortunately cannot attend the services for Jeremy but my prayers will be there. God bless. A warm hello to all '88 Northgaters.
