Live Like Jer
Posted by Denise Henry
We didn't say goodbye, because we will see Jer again on the other side.
It was a beautiful tribute to our friend, our loved one. The sun was shining and the ocean was calm. We held hands and shared our love for Jer, before releasing his physical presence to the ocean he loves so much.
Jeremy Montes, Jr. lived every day to the fullest and never let anything stand in the way of him and his goals and dreams. He endured much and maintained a positive attitude through his darkest days.
His spirit lives on in our daily words and actions. When we face challenges with relentless determination, pursue our dreams with passion, and give real hugs, we Live Like Jer.
The outpouring of love and support to Jer and his family over the last two years means so much and will never be forgotten.
Through generosity shown by friends, family, and friends we've yet to meet, Jer's family was able to spend countless days by his side in the hospital. Without your support on the donation site, this would not have been possible.
As you know the gift of time with those we love is the greatest gift of all.
Thank you so very much.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Please join us as we will gather to celebrate Jeremy Jr's inspiring life at Twin Lakes Church on December 30, at 3:00 p.m. The dress will be Santa Cruz casual, meaning that you should wear whatever you feel most comfortable wearing. On December 31, we will paddle out for Jer at 12:00 p.m. at his favorite spot - Rockview St. - in Capitola. Please plan to come early to find parking.
Keep fighting hard Jer, we're all behind you!
Good luck Jer. Oss.

Hello-I'm wanting to know how Jer is doing? I will donate a few bucks next week, and posted to my facebook to get my friends to help as well.
love to you and your family always and forever
Thank you so very much to friends, family and some that God has touched your hearts to give to my Grandsons fight against Leukemia. Everyday is new and I still hang on to the power of prayer! God's Blessings on you and your loved ones. Jeremy Jr's Grandmother
I too fight Leukemia and have know Jer Jr's dad since he was 5 or 6. This is a war, this is life changing and this can be very costly. I ask ALL to give as much as they can and as often as they can, Make this a cause for your school, group of friends or maybe yourself but help this family who is Loved & respected and needs us to share now through our gift of giving financially. Remember it doesn't need to be a lot, just what you can and maybe you can find a way to do it more than once. I have spread the word to the Vancouver, Washington community and asked them, challenged them to do the same, dig deep and give, it is the gift of life you are giving back. I know, I walk the same path and fight the same fight. Jer WILL WIN!
Dear brothers and sisters; you are so much more then friends. I can not thank you enough or often enough for what you are doing to support Jer in this fight. It's because of you that I am able to stay close to his hospital just across the street. There are so many factors in the logistics of this battle; your gifts are keeping the supply line safe and the front line nourished and rested. ...all of which supports Jer during this time where only he can take the fight; it lets us be with him so that he does not feel alone. Thank you again, Ossuu - Jer Sr.
I am Jeremy Jr.'s Aunt, thank you all. He is so young. He's concerned about falling behind in school. He has so many plans and goals and dreams. His family is a supportive and very close knit group of amazingly positive persons. Again thank you from Aunty Lali
