A retired professor at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colo., where he was known as a kind-hearted and good-humored instructor, Jeremy died July 17, 2020, of injuries sustained in a fall from a ladder.

He took up teaching after retiring from two decades at the U.S. Department of Transportation, where he worked on dozens of roads in the West, including the Flaming Gorge Scenic Byway. He earned a master’s of public administration degree from Harvard and a doctorate in business administration from George Washington. During 20 years at Fort Lewis until 2002, he was acting dean and assistant dean of the business school. He launched the international business program and started a study-abroad scholarship.

Jeremy met Judy in high school in Rochester, and they married in 1962 before senior year. He earned a degree in civil engineering and belonged to Elm Club, where after supper “she played bridge with my smart clubmates while I studied.” In their 50th year of marriage, an auto accident took Judy’s life and left Jeremy with years of recovery.

In 2015 he married Ginny Wood Brown. Also surviving are sons Sean and Prescott, two grandchildren, stepchildren Alison and Katie, three step-grandchildren, and siblings Liz, John, and Kathy.
