This is just so sad.
Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter revealed that his grandson Jeremy passed away at only 28 years old. How tragic.
Apparently, the President’s grandson wasn’t feeling well on Saturday when he decided to lay down and take a nap. Unfortunately, Jeremy’s mother, Annette Carter, found him unresponsive when she went to check in on him. It’s said the family attempted to perform CPR as his heart had stopped beating.
The political icon shared his heartbreaking loss while teaching Sunday school in his hometown of Plains, GA. Surprisingly, Carter’s family were the ones who encouraged him to keep his church plans. Wow.
The President noted:
“He was just 28 and a very wonderful young man who we loved very much…I hope that out of this Christmas season we’ll remember what the angels’ song said, ‘Joy to the world, and peace on Earth; good will to every person.'”
The coroner has yet to confirm the Georgia native’s grandson’s cause of death.
Our thoughts are with the entire Carter family during this trying time.
