Moreno Valley, California
Last moments spent cradling his brother
Known as “Lil JJ,” he was a tall, skinny 17-year-old, often seen smiling in photos with his older brother. Both had played football for Canyon Springs High School.
Loved ones described him as “always full of energy;” he had dropped out of high school and was being home-schooled instead.
On March 7, 2018, Jeremiah and his brother Eli were outside a Jack in the Box restaurant in Moreno Valley, California. Witnesses claim that they heard six to seven gunshots. Eli was shot in the neck and Jeremiah rushed to his side, only to be shot in the chest. He died. Eli died, too.
