Jeremy Jay Karavias
Jeremy Jay KARAVIAS December 7, 1988 ~ October 22, 2008 Jeremy had the biggest kindest heart anyone could imagine, if you asked him to help you he would be there until the job was done. He loved working with his hands, on the farm in the dirt. Jeremy was infatuated with anything that had a motor, especially trucks. He graduated from Kentlake High School in 2007 and lived in the Enumclaw area. Jeremy was preceded in death by his mother Gayle and by his father Dennis. He leaves behind his sister Rachel, brother Jordan, Grandmothers Francine Karavias, Margaret Littlefield and many many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and friends who will miss his beautiful smile. A Memorial Service to honor Jeremy's life will be held Saturday, November 1, 2008 at 11:00 a.m. at the Northwest Family Church, 3535 Auburn Way, Auburn, WA.

The family will continue to suffer with each trial, appeal and news broadcast. Accidental shooting covered up with breaking someone's neck and gutting them? not hardly; then setting your aunt and uncle's home ablaze? No accident with the cover-up. My heartfelt condolences to the Karavias family and those who were hurt in the Curlew area.

They (sheriff) should have taken him out in the woods and dispatched him so that this kids family would not have to endure the pain of looking at this sorry SOB for the next few years. God bless you son.

A shooting in a mobile home is not accidental. Then to snap someones neck, again not accidental. Setting the home on fire to cover the evidence you left behind... shows that Cory was well aware of what he did.
I don't care if you've known anyone for 30yrs or not, by you saying it is an accident shows you are not showing impartial judgement. Cory is a monster, and they shouldn't even waste time with a trial. Take him out back and snap his neck.

He so loved spending time with his family, working on trucks and enjoying the outdoors. He loved to work and share stories with everyone. We all know his generous and trusting nature likely got him into a situation with the subhuman who slayed him. I miss Jeremy's positive attitude and his innocent trust (and his golf game). Thank you Karavias' and Littlefields'; I so enjoyed hearing Jeremy's stories of the weekend gatherings/meals... it reminded me of my big family gatherings when I was his age. Barry

I knew Jeremy for only 1 year while he attended Kentlake High School. In that short time, I came to know him as one of the most personable, caring, and thoughtful kids I have known. I am horrified at the news of his passing and cannot understand how someone could do this to another human being, especially someone like Jeremy. The only solace I find is that he is with his parents now. My thoughts go out to his family and I wish you all peace in this difficult time.

I got the pleasure of being Jeremy's teacher at KLHS; I will always cherish the many conversations and talks that I shared with Jeremy. Jeremy spoke to me about his belief in God; one of the few students that I've discussed Christ with. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Jeremy's family; I pray that God will bring peace to a difficult and unjustifiable situation.

I've known Jeremy for a little over a year. He was a good man, always happy with that big smile, very eager to learn and a good listener. He will be missed deeply. R.I.P. JJK

There is NO excuse for what happened. If Cory gets out it won't make much difference. These things always take care of themselves.

We miss you Jeremy! This was hardly an accident... Did you hear the 911 tapes? An innocent "monster" does not shoot someone, break their neck to finish off the job, set the house on fire, try to flee the scene of the crime, attempt escape at the hospital, AND NOW... bail has been raised to 1.5 million because of the attempted or planned attempt escape at jail!!!These are not the actions of an innocent man. These are only the acts of a monster... which no one can comprehend. Jeremy was one of the most kind individuals you would ever meet. His heart and smile were both larger than life. This is truly unfair that his life was taken and in such a vicious manner! The town of Enumclaw is missing you Jeremy, but you will never be forgotten. We pray that justice will prevail. We will not let anyone forget. God bless, we know you are in heaven with your mom and dad right now.

I think that Monaghan's wife and kids are lucky to have this happen. Now they can be safe in their own home. Jeremy was the kindest, most loving human being who loved life. For everything that has happened to him in his short 19 years, he always managed to have a heartwarming smile in his face. Jeremy, I love you and will always remember the times we had together.
People are ignorant and it is not fair. The facts do not lie, the 911 call does not lie, and I know in my heart that justice will be served.
Jeremy, enjoy your time with your mom and dad, I know that you are together now.
Love

I have known Cory Monaghan my entire life. Few words can describe him other than... unpredictable, sometimes mean spirited, confused, and w/o a doubt not loved enough! He did @ times show signs of a caring person but it never seemed to last. His family life growing up was a bloody mess. His father is a good man and I feel for him, However his mother is a completely different story and those who know her know that she probably had something to do with Cory monaghans mental health. I hope the creator goes easy on you Cory, deep down you have good inside, be honest with everyone including yourself, seek forgiveness and in time it will come. Apologize to your family as well as the friends and family of the Karavias' and Littlefields' you owe them that much.
