Let's help Amanda!

Jeremy Johnson (and his son Colin, as they liked to joke), married Amanda on August 1, 2015.  They planned a life together and their first child is due on June 11, 2017.  

Unfortunately, Jeremy suffered medical problems on June 1, 2017 and unexpectedly died at the age of 41.  

We are creating this page to assist Amanda with medical bills, funeral expenses and to help assist with expenses for the new baby, as well as help with a future for Colin.

Jeremy was a well-liked teacher at Forest Ridge Academy in Schererville, Indiana, who's passion was with the Science Olympiad teams.

Amanda was a Hammond Police Dispatcher for 15 years, until she transferred to Lake County Emergency Communications, where she currently works.

Let's all get together to help Amanda out!
