Jeremy Driessen

June 27, 1980-Dec. 7, 2016

Jeremy Charles Driessen died Dec. 7, 2016, at his home with his family by his side.

Jeremy was born June 27, 1980, to David and Laurie Driessen. He was surrounded by people who loved him and cared for him all of his life. He will be dearly missed by his mom and dad; brothers Justin (Carie) Driessen; Josh (Megan) Driessen and sister Jennifer (Jeff) Thovson; his nieces and nephews whom he adored: Ethan, Eli and Ella Thovson; Addison, Carson and Hudson Driessen; and Braxton Driessen; and his aunts, uncles and cousins. Jeremy has been blessed to have many angels in his life who helped care for him during his 36 years of life. He loved all of you and we are so thankful you were there for him throughout the years, such as the teachers and staff at Canby Public Schools, all of those who worked with him at REM Southwest Services, the Sanford Home Health and Hospice Team, the doctors, nurses and staff at Sanford Canby Medical Center. We are especially grateful for Jeremy’s special angels Missy, Linda Jo and Dr. Lopez; you meant the world to him. We will remember his big beautiful smile that would light up a room and his wonderful sense of humor. We ask that you honor his memory with a smile and to say a thank you to all those angels out there who dedicate their lives to care for others.

At a later date, we will be celebrating his life at one of his favorite places.
