Jeremy was known as selfless and kind-hearted. He was rarely seen without a smile on his face. His greatest pride and joy were his family. He was a foundational member of the Reesor family unit and loved to warm the dinner table with both his unmatched appetite for Ruthie’s famous cooking, as well as his endless support for Greg and all his girls.
Firefighter First Class Jeremy Bush was sworn into the South Bend Fire Department in October of 2000. Jeremy served throughout the city at several stations and spent his whole career on B-Shift. Jeremy served honorably as a Trustee with Firefighters Local 362 and a Lead Paramedic assigned to Engine 3 with Captain Patrick Kottkamp, Pump Engineer Doug Applegate, and Jessica Ringer located on McKinley at Station 3, known as “The Island.”
Fire Chief Carl Buchanan mentioned that, “firefighter Bush was an extremely energetic individual whose height and size alone would elevate everyone's attitudes and happiness to another level. When Bush walked into the room, expect a huge bear hug and laughter to follow, Jeremy will be truly missed by everyone who knew him.”
