Former President Jimmy Carter's Grandson Jeremy Dead at 28

So sad – Jimmy Carter‘s grandson Jeremy died from an unknown cause on Sunday (December 20) in Peachtree City, Ga.

The 91-year-old former President announced the news while teaching a Sunday school class at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains.

“[Carter's] decision to come teach Sunday school is indicative of his character, how important this church is to him, teaching is to him,” the church’s pastor, Jeremy Shoulta, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “The past few months have been a very emotional time for this church. There have been moments of great joy, of sadness, of grief. The church has done all it can to life the Carters up during this difficult time.”

Jeremy was only 28 years old. He reportedly didn’t feel well the day before and went to lay down. His mother Annette later found his heart had stopped and attempted CPR before he was transferred to a hospital.

Our thoughts are with the Carter family during this difficult time.
