Jeremiah was born in Chico, TX to Cindy Willis on June 17, 1978. He was adopted by Billy Young and raised in Decatur, TX. He graduated from Decatur High School. He married Jennifer on March 14, 2009 in Snyder, TX. He worked for Vexus Fiber as a Residential Sales Manager. Jeremiah lived a life that was entirely devoted to chasing Jesus when he was baptized at the age of 21. The years that followed were marked by joy that flowed from obedience to the Holy Spirit. His God given personality, filled with joy and humor, drew him to serve in the Beltway Student Ministries and Beltway Kids. Jeremiah was moved by the Lord to seek revival and walked out his calling and faith alongside the Godly men of his Fire Team. As Husband, Jeremiah championed for Jennifer in every season guarding her heart and spurring her on. As a loving father, he shepherded Emmalyn and Tristan by bringing the fun and joy while setting the example through a Christ-centered life.
Jeremiah was preceded in death by grandfather, Reno Clayton, mother-in-law, Debbie Roemisch, and grandmother-in-law, Jayme Roemisch.
