Lance Cpl. Jeremy Kane was a student at Rutgers-Camden studying Criminal Justice and Political Science. He had joined the Marine Reservists on September 11, 2006 because "he felt that every American had the duty to give back to his country."
When his Reserve Unit was activated for deployment, Jeremy was hesitant leaving his mother behind, as Jeremy's Father recently passed away from stomach cancer. Shedding his reluctance, Jeremy Kane deployed with enthusiasm because he knew it was the right thing to do. For this, Jeremy Kane made the ultimate sacrifice for his family, and country. Jeremy was an honored friend, son, brother, grandson, boyfriend, mentor and Marine. We wish to honor Jeremy by creating a scholarship in his name, for future generations of warriors to benefit from. We humbly ask for your help in creating this lasting legacy for a very great man.
Rutgers University students are working to establish an academic scholarship in Jeremy Kane's honor which will be given to individuals based on his/her goals and accomplishments, which most closely reflect the values of which Jeremy lived.
We need your help. Even a small donation contributes largely to our goal of $50,000 for a permanent Jeremy Kane Scholarship. Rutgers students are consistently putting on bake sales, benefit runs and selling military memorabilia all in the interest of creating this scholarship in a beloved student's honor. Please contribute today, and thank God for men like Jeremy always. We know times are tough, but for heroes like Jeremy, time is no more. Help us build this lasting legacy to honor a great man. Thank you.
