Jeremy was born and raised in Whiteville, North Carolina. After graduating from Whiteville High School, he attended the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Sociology. Once he moved to Greensboro, it became home. Over the span of twenty years, Jeremy cultivated friendships which built a community focused on love, music, and most of all, staying weird. Jeremy was an exceptionally talented drummer and musician, playing in numerous bands throughout his life. When Jeremy wasn’t on stage, he could often be found shooting pool with his league or in the front row listening to others jam.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Jeremy’s memory to a charity of your choice, especially any efforts to support the environment or music. FountainFest, a music festival, will be planned for the fall of 2023. If you wish to support this event, you may contact his sister, Katie Fountain, at 910-258-6762.
