Jeremy Douglas Hartley

March 15, 1976 - September 5, 2016


Jeremy Douglas Hartley

1976 – 2016

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Jeremy Hartley on September 5, 2016 at the age of 40.  Jer passed peacefully at his home in Taghum. 

Jeremy Douglas Hartley was a beloved son, brother, uncle, nephew, brother-in-law, cousin and a dear friend to MANY.  He was born in Kamloops, BC on March 15, 1976 and was the first child of Doug and Heather Hartley.  After the family settled in Nelson in 1979, Jeremy (Jer) was raised on the North Shore of Kootenay Lake with his sister, Kristen and brother, Gavin.  Summers were spent on 5 mile beach with endless hours of boating in the family boat. Jer was a boisterous presence within the family.

Jer moved to Nanaimo BC in 1995 and lived there for 3 years.  Following that Jer lived in Calgary AB for 8 years, eventually moving back to BC in 2004 where he lived in Kelowna for the next 6 years.  In 2009 Jer purchased a house in Sicamous where he lived for 2 years prior to moving back to Nelson for his remaining years. 

Through Jer’s 40 years and the many cities he lived in, he left a lasting impression on many people through the activities that he loved so dearly…  When not working, Jer would most often be seen (and heard) in the alpine, on the lake, the golf course, in costume or in the kitchen, entertaining those he loved.  To his friends and family he was known as the gentle giant, the Jeopardy champion, the playful uncle, the loudest guy at any party, the ninja chef, one-of-a-kind, charismatic, hilarious and off-side and much more.  Nicknames included: Coach, Jer Bear, Moose, Uncha Jer, and Hartles.

His family and friends will be celebrating his life on Saturday, September 24th at 2pm at the Prestige Lakeside Resort 701 Lakeside Dr, Nelson, BC V1L 6G3, Nelson, B.C.
