Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter informed on Sunday that his grandson, Jeremy Carter, 28, died early on Sunday with unrevealed ailment at a hospital.
The former US president informed the grandson’s regular Sunday-school class at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Georgia.
It was reported that Jeremy Carter was feeling unwell on Saturday and preferred to take a nap at home in Peachtree City, Georgia, but when his mother went to see him, he was dead and there was no pulse.
The irony is that Jimmy Carter who was earlier diagnosed with cancer in brain was declared free of melanoma lesions in brain just two weeks before and shared his joy at the congregation. “Everything that happens in life, good or bad, he uses as a teaching experience. He lives his life as a lesson for other people to see,” defended a Prishioner.
Jeremy Carter, who attended the church sometimes, w2as remembered by the attendees. “He’s a great kid, it’s sad,” churchgoer Jill Stuckey told the Journal-Constitution. “Life’s full of its ups and downs, and the Carters aren’t immune.”
Rev. Jeremy Shoulta, the pastor of the church, said:”Jeremy Carter had not been feeling well and at some point later in the day he had gone to sleep and during the course of that time, his heart stopped… This was shocking news, very unexpected and there were no health problems from what we were aware of.”
Son of Jimmy Carter’s youngest son Jiff Carter, Jeremy Carter has left behind mother Annette and two siblings. He once accompanied his grand father to Istanbul to attend a climate change meeting of the elders.
