Jeremiah "Ghost" Ledesma

Jeremiah Eugene Ledesma...a loving Husband and devoted Father of four. Although he worked a full time job as well as attending UEI College at night, he always found time to dedicate to his family. This included volunteer coaching for Camp Pendleton Youth Sports. Being an encouraging role model to his sons was extremely important to Jeremiah. Missing his daughters Choir performances or softball games was never an option. Seeing them succeed and wanting them to know he was always proud of them was his #1 goal. Another important part of his life included his beloved wife Rachel Ledesma. Together for 13 years, his desire for her happiness never waivered. They often spoke about growing old and grey together. A true hero, in every sense of the word, he proudly served 12 years in the United States Marine Corps. This included a deployment to Iraq in 2008-2009. He always put everyone else before himself, whether you were a friend or someone he just met, this was truly the kind of Man he was. His goofy, charismatic, outgoing personality kept everyone he met laughing and smiling. We know he will be guiding us in the days to come, allowing us grieve and heal over time until we are all together again. We will always love you Jeremiah and you will be deeply missed.
A message from his bestfriend " Jeremiah a.k.a. Ghost, was taken from us before his time. He was 36, a husband, an amazing father, a great son, and a true brother regardless of blood. He lived for his family. He would drop everything to be there for his kids. On February 2, 2017, Jeremiah was on his way to school when a car cut him off. He was unable to react in time and hit it with his motorcycle. He was taken from us too soon. He will be missed."
We are looking for donations to help his wife, Rachel Ledesma, with his funeral expenses and for help with the family. Anything will be appreciated. Thank you.
