Jeremy Anthony Neel, 24, the son of Emilie Hansen Turner and Mitch Turner and Daniel and Janice Neel, and brother of Bradley Neel passed away on October 3, 2016.

Jeremy was born on September 23, 1992 at Everett General Hospital. He was raised in Mukilteo, where he made his life's deepest connections. He attended Columbia Elementary School, Harbor Pointe Middle School, Kamiak High School and Edmonds Community College.

He had numerous jobs after graduation but most recently worked in the inventory department for Sea-Dog Line in Everett.

Jeremy battled with many health issues early in life, including childhood cancer. For many years, his family searched for treatment answers. After several surgeries and procedures, Jeremy was able to live a healthy life and overcome the medical challenges he faced.

Always there for a laugh and a hug, Jeremy was a deeply caring and compassionate person. Everyone who met him could feel his kind and calm soul, which often brought out the best in people. Jeremy was never one to harm or shout but often diffused anger to make peace.

His love of animals was well known. He cared for and cherished his dog, Louis, with a heart bigger than anything else in the world.

Many will remember Jeremy for one of his greatest talents, his art. He produced daily sketches of humorous ideas and pop-culture references that were as proficient as they were detailed. Each creation of paper and graphite he crafted improved the world through lighthearted and insightful caricatures. His drawings brought everyone around him joy and amazement, due to the hilarious spectacle that was his wonderful talent.

Jeremy is also survived by his maternal grandmother, Elsie Hansen of Wrangell and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Forefront Innovations, 4101 15th Ave NE, Box 354900, Seattle, WA 98195-4900.
