Remembering a Hero and an Angel:
Jeremy Herbstritt

by Kevin Caruso

Jeremy Herbstritt, 27; graduate student in civil engineering; from Bellefonte, Pennsylvania.

Jeremy grew up on a small farm in central Pennsylvania where he and his father raised steers and sheep.

His career goal was to be a civil engineer, and he was considering getting into environmental work after school.

“He liked to work on machinery, take a lot of stuff apart and fixed it,” said his grandfather Thomas Herbstritt. “He was a studious kid.”

A friend of Jeremy’s summed things up very well she said: “He was a wonderful student and person, and will be greatly missed.”

Jeremy Herbstritt is one of the greatest angels in Heaven.

We miss him.

We honor him.

We love him.

We will never forget him.



Please visit and honor
the angels we lost:
