Jeremy

June 29, 2022

Born in: Lawrenceville , IL
Resided in: Montgomery, IN

Jeremy Jon Carter, 47, of Montgomery, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, June 29, at Good Samaritan Hospital. He was born January 15, 1975, in Lawrenceville, IL, and attended Lawrenceville schools before completing his college education at Southern Illinois University. He worked in healthcare IT services with AME and Good Samaritan Hospital before working for FujiFilm Medical Systems where he had been employed for the last 16 years – most recently as Senior Manager of Upgrades. Not only was he proud of his work, but of his team and colleagues. 22 years ago, he met his wife Jennifer (Webster) on a blind date inspired by mutual friends and a mutual love of music. The couple built their friendship and family from that moment on. The couple has two daughters, Ava and Hailey Carter of Montgomery, and two stepsons, Caleb Evans of Des Moines, IA, and Colton Evans, of Brea, CA. He was extremely proud of his family. His daughters’ involvement in Barr-Reeve athletics and student activities was a special source of this pride and prompted his involvement in the greater Montgomery community. He became a member and club director of the Montgomery Ruritan and looked forward to the fun (and work) of the Turkey Trot Festival. In his spare time, he most enjoyed hours spent at the river camp with friends and family – stoking his campfire and beer in hand. He was immensely proud of his grillmaster skills, cornhole prowess, and his freshly mowed yard. When not outside, he enjoyed playing cards, watching Formula1 and NHRA racing, watching Cardinals baseball, and taking naps on the couch with his beloved dog, Biscuit. No one who lived with, worked with, or knew Jeremy was safe from his practical joking, nicknames, and “cattle prodding” – his famous beard never too big to cover the hearty laugh and smiles aimed at the victims of his antics. In addition to his wife and children, he is survived by his parents, Mike (Patty) Carter and Nicki Stevenson of Lawrenceville, siblings Aaron (Jacie) Carter, Mary (Richard) Walls, Kristi (Terry) Brown, Trisha Stover-Hammond, and Cassie McClellan-Cooper, one granddaughter, Isla, nieces Madison, Sydney, Allie, Cloey, and Lilly, and many uncles, aunts, cousins, family and friends who will cherish his memory.  Memorial gifts may be made to the Montgomery Ruritan at PO Box 126, Montgomery, IN, 47558, or to his daughters’ college education.

  10. Jeremy – you were like a brother to me earlier in our lives. For that part of my life, I barely have a memory without you in it. You were such a great friend. Then we got busy with life, and our times together were very few and far between. In the past handful of years, we finally reconnected…the seven of us who talked nearly every day. I am so grateful for that reconnection. We were so busy giving each other a hard time, I never told you what a special person you were to me. Thanks for everything…and we will never let your memory fade.
    To your family – my thoughts and prayers are with you. I don’t have to tell you this, but Jeremy was such a great guy. I’m sure he was even a better husband, father, son and brother. My heart goes out to you. There is nothing I can say to make the pain go away. I just try to remember the smiles he brought us all.

  11. Bob and I send our prayers of sympathy. It sounds like Jeremy was a true blessing to everyone.

  12. Jeremy,

    You have been such a huge part of my life since the day we met and it has been an honor working for you and with you these past years. Words can not express what you have meant to myself and your Fuji family. You will be dearly missed my friend. All our thoughts and prayers go out to your family and friends as we all deal with the loss of one of the great ones.

  13. We were deeply saddened to hear about your passing. From what I hear you were quite the prankster and a fun guy to be around. I’m sad for my daughter in law Kristi, your parents, your wife and kids and the entire family. I know you are already missed so much…gone too soon. Hugs,thoughts, and prayers to the entire family.
    Dennis and Kathy Cook💔🙏❤️

  14. I’m so very sorry for the loss of your husband, father, brother, son and friend to all those grieving. Jennifer, I never had the pleasure of meeting your husband but sounds like he was one of a kind and loved life big! Holding you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. 🕊

  15. I cannot adequately express in words how deeply sorry I am for your loss. Jeremy was truly one of a kind and will be missed by all who had the good fortune of crossing paths with him. Jeremy loved his family deeply, cherished his friendships, and was a guiding light for those who worked for and with him. Whenever I hear the words “Good stuff”, I’ll always think of you my friend! Rest in Peace Jeremy! My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  16. Jeremy, you were a pillar at Fujifilm, with your calmness and cheerfulness. You will be sorely missed.

  17. I had the honor of working with Jeremy at Fujifilm. He was a gentle soul, funny, compassionate and one heck of a leader. He was taken too young and I miss him deeply. The company will miss his leadership and his even tempered approach to some of the most difficult and challenging projects.

    Rest easy my friend.

  18. My deepest condolences go out to Jeremy’s entire family. I’ve read everything that my colleagues at Fuji said about Jeremy and I underscore it all. He was fantastic to work with, a true leader, and a calm presence to his co-workers and customers. While we have lost a great leader at Fuji, the world has lost a wonderful man. Rest in peace Jeremy!

  19. Jeremy was an incredible teammate – always calm and collected – leading with a steady hand. Words seem woefully inadequate, but my deepest condolences are with the family and friends. He wil be missed by so many.

  20. Jeremy always used his uncanny, dry wit to make me laugh in most meetings or conversations. It was a pleasure working under Jeremy’s leadership. My hope is that there is more laughter than tears over the next days, weeks, years for all friends and family who are touched by this tragic loss.

    In his memory, a donation will be made to help educate and eliminate cardiovascular disease. @Nutritionfacts.org. Peace be with you all.

  21. I have always admired Jeremy’s steady, calm, and friendly personality. I could always count on him to help me out when I needed something with work, as he did for so many others too. I’m so grateful to have known him, laughed with him, and be inspired by him. May his family be comforted during this difficult time, until you meet again.

  22. Jeremy was a great person! I met and got to know him through the Montgomery Ruritan Club. We became members together at the same time. Jeremy was a leader in our club, we will miss his friendship and all of the hard work he put into the club. So sorry for the loss to his family and apologies I will not be able to attend his memorial ceremony, I am traveling back today from being out of town.

  23. Condolences and prayers to friends and family. Jeremy was such a wonderful person to work with. I will miss him immensely.

  24. Jeremy you are missed my friend and my mentor you always had a quick word to brighten the day. Our weekly calls were always something to look forward to and your ability to nickname people was beyond incredible. Until we meet again.

  25. As Jennifer’s cousin, I offer my condolences. I pray that Jesus Christ will be with the family during this time of grief and mourning.

  26. “But ah! thou soul at peace! Return unto thy Lord, content in His good pleasure! Enter thou among My bondmen! Enter thou My Garden!”

    I love you brother!
