Daniel James O'MEARA
Daniel wanted to know everyone, and everyone wanted to know Daniel. Like his grandfather, he had a gift for rapport. Loved ones and strangers alike shared their stories with Daniel because he made them feel seen, heard, and valued. He genuinely believed every person he met had something to offer. Daniel was a passionate and talented artist, and a curious and kind young man. Most of all, he was loved. Even in death, he touched new lives by donating his organs and giving the gift of life. Because of Daniel, three people – three families – get to make new memories, get to continue their stories. Daniel is survived by parents, Karen and Mike; brothers, Benjamin and Charlie; and all of his loving family and friends. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Steve Rummler HOPE Network or Juxtaposition Arts in Daniel's honor.

Miss you man, it was fun to play monopoly city with you, you were indeed super charismatic and cool when I knew you, and you rocked it on Halloween. Benjamin, I hope you have people there for you and I wish you happiness in all the littlest places you can find it.

Daniel went to school with my daughter. I’m so sorry about your loss but I’m reaching out because of twin loss. My identical twin died 15 years ago. Please contact me if you want.
