July 15, 1992 - June 3, 2019
Jeremy O Sorensen 1992 - 2019 Our sweet son, Jeremy, passed away on June 3, 2019. He struggled mightily in life and it can truly be said, “This is a man in whom there was no guile.” Jeremy was born July 15, 1992 in Port Arthur, Texas to Latisha Fontenot Proctor. He was raised in Utah by his adoptive parents, Paul and Kathleen Sorensen with 8 brothers and sisters: Joseph, Carrie, James, Jordan Keshia (Mike) Laliberte, Alissa, Katie (Coy) Weber, and Todd. Jeremy and his brother, Todd, joined our family at ages 3 and 4 and added so much joy to our home. At the time we lived in a wonderful, old Catholic Church in Tooele, Utah (complete with bell tower, and stained glass windows!), using part of the building for a private school. Growing up in a large family brought its challenges and blessings to Jeremy. He brought lots and laughter and fun to us (with his Steve Erkell, “I’m going to rock your world,” imitation, for example!) Jeremy had many loving mentors, counselors, employers, teachers, church leaders and ward members who helped him through some pretty difficult challenges life had given him. We wish to thank so many men and women who impacted our boy’s life for good. Jeremy graduated from Canyon View High School in Cedar City, Utah, and was proud to say he had been on the swim team. He then attended Dixie State College for a time. Jeremy worked in the fast food industry for a number of years. He also worked on an organic farm in Arizona alongside his mentor and big brother, Jordan. Most recently, he was employed with L & W Supply in Spanish Fork as a sheet rock stocker. Jeremy would proudly point out many buildings he had stocked at major construction sites as we would drive along I-15. He talked also of beautiful and expensive home sites he had stocked in Fairview and other locations throughout Utah. He was proud of his work! Jeremy was brave about physical injuries, sometimes severe, that he received and showed up at work sometimes in pain and in snowstorm when no one else did. He attended Utah Valley University and participated in ROTC. Jeremy was excitedly preparing to receive his Driver License and was saving to buy his first car. He was asking anyone who dared to give him driving lessons! Jeremy was most proud of his little son. Jeremy was, and we are, grateful to the wonderful adoptive family who loves and cares for him. The most tender pictures we have are of Jeremy holding this little boy. Jeremy was an avid reader and had a wonderful memory. He loved Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and the Brandon Sanderson series. Please visit his family and take one of his books home with you. He loved going to and volunteering at ComicCon. He volunteered for the choir at the Freedom Festival for the great tickets. He loved going to “Cali” with his friends to experience the attractions there. He loved The Beatles’ music and owned their entire collection of songs. He loved history, particularly World War II, and considered a history major. Jeremy loved to write and carried a bag containing stories he had written beginning in second grade around with him most of his life. Jeremy loved to be with his friends and had many dedicated friends who knew his heart and showed great love and caring to him. He returned that loyalty and friendship. He loved baseball and the Seattle Mariners. Friends say he is the spitting image of the Mariners’ Dee Gordon! Jeremy loved fishing and had plans to go fishing with his little nephews on Saturday. Jeremy is cherished by both his birth family in Texas and his family in Utah. He has given us the chance to embrace each other and come to know a truly big and wonderful family! We love Jeremy with all our hearts and honor him. Because of our Savior Jesus Christ we are sure we will be with him again. Funeral services will be 11:00 am, Friday, June 7, 2019. with a viewing prior to the service from 9:30 until 10:45 at the Stonewood Stake Center, 450 South 100 West in Orem, Utah. Interment will be in the West Jordan City Cemetery.
