Our beloved Jer - a beautiful old soul with a golden heart who lived his life through his love for music and serving others, always wanting to share that love and those tunes with us all while ensuring he would touch our hearts and souls forever. Jer did that in such a short time and it was always - ALL GOOD!! Jer loved unconditionally and was the most loyal and trustworthy person. Always the best brother and protector to his sisters and adopted brother, and the greatest cousin to many, but most of all the greatest son and hugger of all time, and also the best friend you could ever be blessed with. So many memories we will carry with us but most especially your love of all things music, especially the Melvins, and all the concerts and Z car shows you’ve enjoyed with your Dad. For your love of Aggie Football, the Dallas Cowboys, dogs, Seinfield, and of course your most favorite food in all of the world, ketchup of course, because it goes on everything.

Jeremy is preceded in death by his grandparents, Peter P. and Tillie Vanecek, and Aurelio, Sr. and Delfina Escamilla. He is survived by his parents, Peter and Margaret Vanecek; sister, Amanda Lynn Vanecek; cousin/sister, Cielle Chevalier; adopted brother, Dennis Fry, Godparents, Bobby Escamilla and Janet Pierce, and numerous uncles, aunts, cousins and a host of friends.

In honor of Jeremy’s passion for music, his family requests everyone wear casual attire or your favorite rock concert t-shirt.

When I think of Jeremy , I immediately think about the road trip he, Anthony, Derek and I embarked on at the spur of the moment to Lexington, Kentucky to see a band called Mogwai. But I knew well of him years before that, his bond with Anthony, close friends, best friends and almost brother like , they grew up together and pursued a life outside of the local area- I was so proud of this but at the same time, a bit sad. It is never easy to let go of someone you love in order for themselves to find their own way, not to follow a path but even better, create your own path. I am sure Jeremy's parents felt the exact same way.
There is no possible way to write just a line or two or even just a few paragraphs to touch upon Jeremy's brief life. Pages endless pages would be more fitting, perhaps with footnotes much longer than the content itself, correct? I greatly admired and appreciated his passion for music, his desire to create his own music, the bands he was part as well as his appreciation for the arts in general. Thirty-two times right? Right up front to see his favorite band ever- you know the name-The Melvins. (wait , I may be wrong on 32 times- could be more)
He was always so proud of the tattoos he has gotten over the years, many by Derek and most a reflection of the music he loved. Over the years Jeremy and I have talked -sometimes one on one, sometimes over the phone when we discussed music or just simply when he wanted me to just listen. It was quite a few years back when I thought of him more as a son and by his own admission, he would refer to me as his second dad. I am happy that he was friends with Anthony, Derek and Michael.
Jeremy aka Thee Chexican, will be missed by many- my heart goes out to the parents/ family-his friends, close friends, those who knew of him, worked with him. There is a little bit of Thee Chexican in all of us and for that we should all be greatful. Love you Jeremy and will miss you dearly, peace

Jeremy was one of my first friends when I moved to Austin. He was one of the most interesting, talented, genuine and easy to love people you could ever hope to meet. My condolences go out to his family. I was part of what I would like to think was an extended family of his in Austin for many years. I feel lucky to have had the time with him that I had. I love you Jeremy.
