Jeremy F. Hayden, a longtime resident of Monroe, CT, passed away on October 29, 2019. He was 41.

Jeremy was born in Bridgeport, CT, and was the beloved son of Sue Clark and John Hayden and the beloved step-son of Tom Clark. He graduated from Newtown High School in 1996 and went on to attend the University of Connecticut. He graduated in 2000 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science and history. He then attended Quinnipiac University School of Law from 2002 - 2005, where he graduated magna cum laude. While at Quinnipiac he was very active with the Quinnipiac Law Review and served as the Publications Editor.

Immediately following law school, Jeremy worked at the law firm of Harlow, Adams and Friedman in Milford, CT, and practiced primarily in the areas of commercial litigation, bankruptcy land use/zoning, and State Appellate practice. In 2009, Jeremy joined a small general practice law firm in Fairfield, CT, where he eventually became a named partner of Ferrara Hayden P.C. In 2014, he started his own law practice, The Hayden Law Firm P.C., located on Main Street in Monroe, CT, where he practiced primarily in the areas of commercial litigation, municipal law, personal injury, land use, business representation and corporate law.

Jeremy was very involved in his local community, serving for several years on the Inland Wetlands Commission and, for the last few years of his tenure, serving as the commission's chairman. He then was elected to the Planning and Zoning Commission, where he served as a commissioner and the secretary. Most recently, he was serving as the Town Attorney for the Town of Monroe, a role that he loved and at which he excelled.

Jeremy is survived by his wife, Meghan, and his step-daughter Isabella Kantor. He is also survived by his younger brothers David Hayden and his wife Andrea and their children Charlotte and Daniel and Adam Hayden and his wife Javiera and their son Lucas, as well as his younger sister Stefanie Foster and her husband Jason.

It ways a pleasure working with Jeremy, he had the best interests of the Town at heart. He never got agitated about zoning problems we spoke about, always on an even keel. We all miss him at Town Hall, he was a real asset to us.

There’s not enough words I can say to describe my long friendship with Jeremy . He was a dear friend of mine and he was also my Real Estate lawyer
of my first home in Stamford. I remember asking him if he could recommend a reliable contractor who turned out to be his brother David. I’ve know both brothers for 10 years and I considered both of them as family. Jeremy was always there for me if I ever had any questions ! I can’t think of a more wonderful and sweet guy than him! I will miss him very much but at least I had his friendship and memories of remembering him .
Thank you Jeremy and hope God keeps you in his loving hands . You really were the best! Love ❤️ you and miss you with all my heart ♥️

I knew when I met Jeremy that he would be one of my favorite people of all time. He had represented me personally, and, clients whom I referred to him during my tenure as a mortgage broker. Only fond words were ever spoken of him, and, I was always proud to be affiliated with him in business, and as a friend. My heart is so sad that he has passed, and, I will miss him, as will all who knew him. I truly could not speak more highly of an individual as I can of Jeremy. All my condolences to Jeremy's immediate and extended family, of whom he always spoke about with a special gleam in his eyes.

I knew Jeremy from working for the Town of Monroe. He was always available for questions, a pleasure to work with, and always got back with an answer. I always found him willing to listen to an issue and assist in the resolution. I will certainly miss having him around to help the Town deal with our legal problems. My condolences to his family, he will certainly be missed at Town Hall.
