Jeremy was born on September 17, 1981 in Iowa City, son of Scott White and Denise Seering.
Jeremy’s early life exposed him to a variety of cultures and climates, from a horse ranch on Oahu and a marine base at Kaneohe bay, to Camp Lejeune, and back over seas to Iwakuni, Japan where he started school. Jeremy loved the ocean and sandy beaches.

Back in the states, he continued his education at Penn Elementary in North Liberty, Northwest Junior High School in Coralville, West High in Iowa City and graduated from CEC (Tate High School). From a young age, Jeremy was involved in sports like baseball and football.

Even while busy with sports, Jeremy also took time to be with his brothers Derrick and Kenny. He loved being a big brother but he also kept a watch on his cousins. He always wanted sisters and had them in Jessi, Nichole, Alicia, Amber and April.

Jeremy and Erica reconnected, thanks to his Cousin Nichole. They married September 30, 2006 surrounded by family and close friends.

Jeremy followed in his Grandfather’s footsteps and work with his hands. Jeremy worked landscape, construction and plumbing. He loved to build and see how things fit together. He loved driving around town seeing houses he built and plumbed. He also would do side work as a cook at local bars. Jeremy took pride in taking care of his family.

Jeremy loved the outdoors. Shooting his guns and hunting was one of the things he shared with his son James. He loved going down to the pond and fishing with anyone who would go with him. On weekends when it was nice out, he would bust out the smoker and cook some tasty meat treats.

Jeremy’s true love is his “mistress,” his Harley Davidson Sporty 883 xl. As soon as the temperature outside was over 50 degrees, he was on his bike. He rode every chance he got. He loved going for rides with his wife Erica. Jeremy and Erica went to Sturgis Biker Rally. It was his favorite trip he went on and he was looking forward to going back. He passed down his love for motorcycles to his son Wilbert.

Jeremy also had a passion for music and tattoos. Jeremy loved to go to concerts and see his favorite bands. He loved that he got to take his son James to his first concert in 2016. He also loved to go see Cooper and get work done. Jeremy loved his body art. His goal was to have one giant tattoo.

Jeremy went by many names like Junior, Bullfrog and Bojangles. He left a lasting impression on everyone he met. He was quick with a joke and was always there to lend a hand. During his last year, Jeremy took pride being the officiant in his Cousin Nichole wedding to Jason Hansen. He spent time with his family and friends. Even in sickness you couldn’t stop him.

Jeremy is survived by his loving wife, Erica Robe; his children, James Dohrer and Wilbert Robe; his parents, Denise (Randy) Weiss, Mark (JoAnn Scearcy) Robe and Scott White; his siblings Derrick Robe, Kenny Robe, Bob (Danni) White and Cassandra (Daniel) Sarfati; his grandparents Ted (Joyce) Vesely and Jean Robe. Jeremy is also survived by numerous extended family and friends.
He was preceded in death by his grandfather Ken Robe and his great-grandparents, Wilbert Brender and Lida Brender.

A special thanks to the University of Iowa Cancer Clinic, the staff on 4JP West (aka Jeremy’s girls) and Iowa City Hospice. Also, thank you to all the friends and family that stood behind Jeremy in his fight against cancer.
