6 July, 198218 November, 2019

Jeremy C. Poster, 37, of Providence RI, funeral home manager for Sugarman-Sinai Chapels, passed away on Monday, November 18, 2019, in Providence. Jeremy was born on July 6, 1982, in Las Vegas, NV, to Joan Kaplan (nee Dalton) and Jay Poster. He is predeceased by his grandparents, Lorraine (nee Arrigotti) and George Dalton, and Ruth ”Ruthie” (nee Seltzer) and Arnold “Arnie” Poster; and survived by his mother, Joan Kaplan (David); father, Jay Poster (Pamela); siblings Janna Karel and Adam Greenburg; three aunts: Rev. Barbara Kenley (Robert); Phoebe Ritter (Thomas), Suzie Schmitt (Eberhart); four uncles: Gordon Poster (Laura), Michael Poster, Henry Dalton (Penny), and David Dalton (Donna); great-uncle, Stanley Seltzer (Jane); great-aunt Sarah Poster; and grandparents Art and Donna Karel, as well as numerous cousins, and many friends and work associates who admired and loved him dearly.

Jeremy lived most of his life in Las Vegas, with stops in San Diego, CA; Redding, CA; and finally in Providence, RI. He graduated from Bonanza High School and attended both UNR and UNLV where he maintained strong personal friendships. He was a funeral home professional, starting his career in 2002, at the age of 20, with Palm Mortuaries of Las Vegas. Palm eventually became part of Dignity Memorial. He began his career as a funeral service attendant and took on various roles in the Palm market, ultimately becoming a funeral director in 2010.

In 2015, after expressing the desire to grow with the company, he accepted the position as location manager for several funeral homes in Redding, CA. Because of the impact he made in Redding, he was sought after for a location manager position in Providence, RI at Sugarman-Sinai Chapel. He accepted that position in 2018. During his short time in Rhode Island he immersed himself in the Rhode Island Jewish and business communities creating many new friends and making a significant impact. He helped spearhead the cemetery cleanup of the Fall River MA Jewish Cemetery in early 2019 due to Anti-Semitic vandalism.

His next professional move was bringing his wealth of knowledge and experience back home to Las Vegas. He had just accepted the position of Palm Las Vegas Operational Trainer and was to start his new role in December of this year.

He was excited to continue his growth in the industry and looked forward to coming home to family and friends.

Jeremy was funny, witty, compassionate, and served as a confidant to many. He loved international travel and outdoor adventures. He loved music, especially the Dave Mathews Band, traveling to attend over 40 of their concerts. He was a life-long San Diego Padres fan and was rarely seen without his Padres jersey and cap. He loved the Vegas Golden Knights and was looking forward to attending their games in person. He started to follow the New England Patriots and the Boston Red Sox. He loved happy hours with his friends and co-workers. And he loved his career in the death care industry.

Jeremy leaves a huge hole in the hearts of all who knew him.

Memorial services will be held on Friday, December 6, 2019, at 10:00 AM Sugarman-Sinai Memorial Chapel, 458 Hope St, Providence.

Family requests that memorial donations be made to Congregation Ner Tamid of Henderson, NV or Jewish Family Service Agency of Las Vegas, NV.

Jeremy, I miss our conversations. You were a wonderful friend who was NEVER judgemental. You were kind and caring and never had an ounce of hate in your heart. If only the rest of the world were like you. Rest in peace,my friend. You will be forever missed.

I am so grateful for the life of Jeremy. So many times he took the time to sit with me and talk about Jimmy. He was so kind. Someone said to me "One Day, a smile will come to your face before a tear to your eye." I promise you the day will come, Jay. With deep sadness, a beautiful soul, Jeremy was. I wish you peace.
Love, Kim Barnett

I was so saddened to hear that Jeremy past away. Every time I saw him he was always friendly and sincere. I know how much love his family had for him and the excitement they had to have him headed back to Las Vegas.

I wish the whole family only the best and to focus on the memories of love, happiness, and cherished times shared.

With love,

Jeremy, my childhood friend. I’ll miss you! We were clarinet buddies. We would battle for chairs throughout middle school and high school. We ran in similar circles at UNR. We’d run into each other in random places. You took care of my both of my grandparents arrangements. You were kind, funny, sassy, and a good dude. I’m heartbroken. I’ll never forget the retelling of all our band stories and rolling my eyes as you talked about how I crushed you in marching band. You will be missed and forever loved. Thank you for being a part of my life. See you on the other side. Forever and always, Mullen. And YES, I just rolled my eyes at you!

Jeremy Poster, I knew you as a child. I picked you up and took you to Hebrew School with my son Scott Yahraus. We carpooled. You were always so respectful and I loved to listen to you and Scott chat on the way to CNT when our Synagogue was on Emerson. You worked at King David, and were present, when my late husband Don Yahraus passed. Then my Uncle Jerry passed, my mother-in-law Doris Yahraus, sister-in-law Debbie Yahraus, my beloved mother, Marilyn Miller, and my mother-law Marsha Lewis. You were so companionate, and a consummate professional. Jeremy, you will be greatly missed by so many. May your memory be for a blessing, and may you always Rest In Peace.

My heart goes out to you, your family and the countless friends whose lives Jeremy touched. You and I spoke last time we met of how proud we both were of Jeremy and how he had grown as a funeral professional and the impact he had on so many. You beamed with pride as we spoke.

While I regret that I cannot be with you Monday, please know you will be in my thoughts, my prayers and in my heart. God bless.
