Type: Donor Advised
Established 2007 This fund was established in honor and memory of Lance Corporal Jeremy Shock, U.S. Marine Corps. Jeremy was killed while serving his country in Iraq, November 2006. Jeremy was a 2002 graduate of Clyde High School, where he was a member of the football team. He went on to play football for Tiffin University and earned a bachelor's degree in criminal justice. Friends remember Jeremy as a good friend who was smart, generous, worked hard, and made them laugh. He married his college sweetheart, Clara, in April 2006. It was always a dream of Jeremy's to have lights at the baseball diamonds located in his hometown of Green Springs, Ohio. Jeremy's family (parents: Duane and Sherry; siblings: Zachary and Sara), members of the community, and local businesses and organizations have undertaken the mission of making Jeremy's dream come true and ensuring that his sacrifice is never forgotten. Fundraising efforts began at Great Scot Supermarkets, Green Springs, where they sold U.S. Flags and memory cards.
