Jeremy Lynn Simpson

Jeremy Lynn Simpson

July 9, 1985 – January 19, 2024

Jeremy Lynn Simpson, 38, was born on July 7, 1985, to Nancy and Jeff Simpson, in Omaha, Nebraska.

There are a lot of ways that something like this can be read for a loved one you have lost, it can go on and on about things that they did as children, adolescents, and young adults. It could tell you about all the fun times they had with family and friends, the ups and the downs.

This is not that. This is the truth about Sobriety, Mental Health, Life and Death.

Eight years, and a little over a month ago, Jeremy made a very life altering decision. He decided to give his life of drinking and partying over to God and become sober.  He celebrated 8 years of sobriety and new life on December 16th, 2023.

Jeremy had been employed with Union Pacific Railroad for nearly 12 years as a Member of the BMWED. He was very passionate about everything else he did, from fishing trips with the family, to smoking meat on several of his grills, to trash talking by posting the most random thing on social media to get a rise out of some. Most importantly, he was passionate about his kids, his two daughters and three bonus sons. There wasn’t a thing that he wouldn’t do for them.

Anyone that has decided to change their life for the better still can struggle. We are celebrating a life that ended too soon. Jeremy, like many others that have the ups and downs that come with addiction, was having some inner issues with some unresolved struggles. He admitted that he was sick, he did seek help, he did reach out to others. His heart and his head were not allowing one another to connect correctly and make clear choices. He did stay sober until the end but ultimately the mental side of things led to the final choice for him.

On Friday January 19, 2024, Jeremy Lynn Simpson decided that he did not want to allow his sickness to affect his family, friends, and children any longer. He made the choice to end his life. The choice that has left us all with many emotions and no true answers.

Jeremy was preceded in death by his Grandmother, Mary Simpson, Grandfather, Don Simpson; Grandmother, Kay Smith, and Grandfather, Don Smith. Jeremy is survived by two parents, Jeff Simpson and Nancy Kurth; Wife, Dierdre Simpson; their children, Kaleb, Landry, Jaxon, Amelia “Mimi”, and Bernadette “Bea”; Uncles, Mark, Danny (Cheri), Mike (Judy); and many cousins and friends.

Memorial Service: Saturday, January 27, 5:00 p.m. at West Center Chapel, 7805 West Center Rd.

In lieu of flowers, Memorials will be directed to family.

    I’m so sorry to hear about Jeremy. I was excited to start seeing him around the Above & Beyond shop more this winter. He was so funny and I loved his sense of humor. I’ll miss seeing his Facebook posts and wearing shorts in the winter,

    I have so much love for you and the kids, but I cannot imagine what you are all going through right now. I hope Jeremy is at peace now and that you and the kids and all Jeremy’s family can find some peace as well. Glen said to tell you how sorry he is for your loss.

    Jeremy was one of the strongest people I knew. He overcame so many struggles to accomplish his goals of making a home for his girls. His girls knew that he loved them everyday. Some how his past snuck up on him and those demons were more than he could handle. Jeremy was a rock for so many people. He will be missed by so many. I love you Jeremy. Now and always.
