The Carencro Catholic School and Teurlings Catholic High School community are heartbroken as they mourn the untimely passing of Jeremi Richey, a cherished member of their family. The news of his tragic loss has left family, friends, and students devastated.

Earlier this week, social media platforms were flooded with requests for prayers when the distressing news circulated that Richey had been hospitalized following a drowning incident while vacationing in St. Augustine, Florida. The entire community seemingly held its breath in prayer, hoping for a miraculous recovery.

However, on Thursday (Jul. 6), the Richey family shared the heartbreaking update that Jeremi had passed away as a result of the drowning incident. The announcement sent shockwaves through the community.

In a heartfelt message, Jeremi's family expressed their indescribable pain and the incomparable love they had for their son and brother. They also acknowledged the immense love and care that Jeremi showered upon so many others. They recognized that the loss extends far beyond their immediate family, acknowledging the collective pain that many are experiencing. Funeral arrangements will be made known at a later time, giving loved ones an opportunity to come together and bid their final goodbyes to a remarkable individual whose memory will endure eternally.

The outpouring of love and support from Jeremi's friends, family, and the community at large has been overwhelming. The Richey family has been covered in a comforting embrace of condolences, with heartfelt tributes flooding social media platforms as people shared their fondest memories of Jeremi.

Teurlings Catholic High School, where Jeremi graduated in 2009 and where his siblings currently attend, posted a message urging the TCHS community to keep the Richey family in their prayers during this trying time.

The school acknowledged the profound loss, emphasizing the importance of supporting Jeremi's mother and father, Felicia and Wade, as well as his sisters Reagan '22 and Addison '24. The entire school community is united in the hope that God's love and grace will provide solace and strength during this period of unimaginable grief.

Members of Carencro Catholic School, where Jeremi not only received his education but also served as a coach for many years, have also come together to offer their condolences and lift up the Richey family and loved ones in prayer. The collective support from both schools exemplifies the tight-knit nature of the community and its unwavering dedication to helping one another through the darkest of times.

As the heartfelt tributes continue to pour in for Jeremi, we, too, extend our deepest condolences to his friends, students, loved ones, and family members. Jeremi's impact was profound, and his memory will forever be etched in the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to cross paths with him.

Funeral arrangements will be announced by the family at a later date, allowing the community to come together and celebrate the extraordinary life of Jeremi Richey, a beloved member of their close-knit community.
