I will never forget your special/funny dance you did behind the bar while waiting on patrons, it always cracked me up! You where a very special guy & we will all miss you terribly:) Thoughts & Prayers are with your family & friends.

I can not put into words what a special guy Jer was...whenever I think of him that warm smile pops into my head... Nothing ever seemed to get him down and he was always so positive and carefree. He always saw the positive in things and just wanted everyone to have a good time and be happy!! I remember working at Ed's and every time I bar-tended with Jer no matter how exhausted we were he made it a blast!!

I have many fond memories of working with Jeremy at Ed's. He made my first winter on the island interesting. He always had a smile on his face and could brighten any day. My thoughts are with Debbie and Ricky. I am so sorry for your loss. RIP Jerbear

I did not know Jer Bear personally but I was involved as a patron of Mr. Eds.
Jeremy always gave great service. He is the hardest working bartender I have EVER seen!
I never had to wait in line and he always remembered what I ordered the previous time even with the hundreds of other customers.
Mr. Eds and Put In Bay will never be the same without Jer Bear!

We are so very sorry Ricky & Deb, you are truly in our thoughts and prayers! I have nothing but fond memories of Jer Bear, always a smile on his face and he is the kindest of people! Like they say...
"Count your age by friends not years. Count your life by smiles not tears."
Clearly he had and gave them both. Genuinely a great guy!
All our love,

I watched Jeremy grow from barback to the best bartender ever over the last 10+ years! Although I only knew him in passing as a very long term customer, it was nothing more than apparent that he truly loved life and loved being on that island. He always made you feel like you were the only one in the bar and never left you waiting. It takes a very rare person to work endless hours, deal with crazy drunks and
