He loved to sing the Canton Spirituals, singing in the Heavenly Choir. Jermayne was diagnosed with congestive heart failure in 2013. He lived with it for seven years. He never let it hinder his love for people, politeness or politics. Jermayne was a very respectful and kind human being. He loved everyone.

He played an integral part in her life, and did all that he could for her; he was selfless. He was a great provider and protector. He loved her like there was no tomorrow. She was his pride and joy and he was very attentive to her. He would ride and sing in the car with her and provide detailed explanations when she had questions.
