Jeremy Shane Teffeteller, 43, passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 21, 2021, with his loving family by his side at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. Jeremy's life, though far too short, made a lasting impact on everyone he knew. Jeremy loved the Lord and that love for Jesus and others made an impression on those closest to him. When asked about Jeremy, they described him as: "Beloved husband, best friend, and soulmate" (Katie Teffeteller) "The best dad that any kid could ever ask for” (Caleb and Jacob Teffeteller) "A wonderful son that we were always proud of" (Debi and Doug Teffeteller) “Not only my big brother, but my best friend" (Randy Teffeteller) "The big brother I always wanted" (Sarah Teffeteller) “I loved when he called me Addy Lou Who” (Adelyn Teffeteller) “Our favorite son-in-law who was more like a son to us” (Paul and Linda Rademacher) “Always up for some friendly competition” (Chris Rademacher) “He had the best sense of humor” (Jamie Rademacher) “An uncle who gave the best bear hugs" (Zach and Ali Rademacher) Jeremy was born in Maryville, Tennessee to Doug and Debi Teffeteller. He was always a happy and active child, loved baseball, and hanging with his cousins and friends. His dad always loved working alongside Jeremy in the garage. His mom loved cooking Jeremy's favorite food for him. His brother Randy was his best friend. Jeremy was full of life and always ready to try new things, especially when it was an opportunity to be with his wife and boys. He loved camping, planning adventures with Katie, fishing with Jacob, and driving with Caleb. Jeremy was the best dad and biggest fan of Caleb and Jacob. The boys never had to wonder if he would be at a game - he was always there, cheering them on. Jeremy was Katie's soulmate and partner in life and brought humor and laughter to their home. He was her protector and best friend. Jeremy spent some of his last days reaching out to family and friends to ensure that no matter what happened, his family would be taken care of. Jeremy is survived by his wife, Katie; his sons, Caleb and Jacob; his parents, Doug and Debi; his brother, Randy (Sarah); his in-laws, Paul and Linda Rademacher; his brother-in-law Chris (Jamie) Rademacher, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, family, and friends.
