" And you better hope that I don't find out who you are........."
Really? You want to know who is on Jermeys side.. I promise you we will give you our names and where to find us cause it seems as if the only people who think he did it is you and that thing he married. All I have to say is... I love my Cousin and will ALWAYS have his back. I trust him with my life.. now you "JAE" I wouldnt trust with my dog. Go ahead call me names, and threaten away but i promise you if it came down to it you would piss your pants in a face to face with every person who has Jermeys back.

really jill you don't even know my family and guess what it was not jeremy that did it it was you daughter because if it wasn't why would she go around telling everyone on this earth that she is the one that did it after jeremy went to prison. and here you go you got your wish i will not hide behind any fake name because i am not a shamed of who i am and who my brother is. GUESS WHAT WORLD JEREMY DONALD JONASON IS MY BROTHER AND HE ALWAYS WILL BE. You want to sit here and say that god will punish people well guess what you are wrong because it says right in the bible that god is not the one that punishs people for what they do it is the devil and if he is the god that you worship than you need to find some other church to go to because reality check GOD LIVES IN HEAVEN AND THE SATAN LIVES IN HELL. Two different places. and also i know my brother and he cried because she loved gracie more than your daughter ever will and she told someone that the only reason she kept gracie was because she wanted to keep jeremy and jeremy has always wanted a kid and he got that and know he is sitting in prison because your daughter doesn't have enough balls to stand up and take her own punishment she has to have my brother do it for her. she is the one that did not want her she is the one that took her away from my brother. my family are hillbillies and we are proud of it. and guess what just a little reminder your daughter married one of the hillbillies that you are talking about.

Jill ^^ there is my name.. I am in St Peter... you can feel free to come say what u like to my face.. i will still stand here and stand proud as hillbilly redneck and yell Hey Ya'll Jeremy Jonason is and was a great father always has and will be!! U touch him We WILL FIND U!! We will always stand behind him and always will ohhhh his wife stood behind him for 2 years ohhh want a browine point?!?!??? Gracie loved her daddy I have pictures to show that, he loved her and cared for her when others where to tired to or didnt want to be bothered... FYI your not God so how can u speak for him?? does he tell u this?? if so get help!! Also if He told her that, how would u know?? thats just hear say.. If u did not see it with ur own eyes or hear it with ur own ears, dont invent it with ur small mind and share it with ur big mouth on here.. Do you not think others are hurting over her death too? NOONE should ever bury there great grand babie its not right... Do u not think that we still cry when we sit and think about her.. Every morning for over a month Megan and I hung out with the girls talking about how they were gonna go to school and fight with each other then walk home laughing about how it was over a stupid boy.. or how they would do everything together from there frist Halloween to there prom.. how about all that didnt get to met her yet? I bet it hurts them that they didnt get to feel the joy that just filled that little angel from head to toe... You want her to rest in peace then STOP hating everything and everyone.. how do you think Gracie feels about that??? or do u not care? what has Megan done with her life since her babys death?? i hear and see not much?? if MY baby was killed by my husband as she so says I would be doing an out reach to others and lending a hand out.. not doing what i hear she is... hurting or not!!! atleast she has things to hold on to yes just things we have our memorys!! We didnt get to have a final good bye like you all did.. we didnt get to throw a fit and take all the photos away!! Iwant to look at your self and your daugther before u respond Jill and look deep in your heart and pull ur head outta daughters ass and remember YOU WERE NOT THE ONLY ONES WHO LOVED HER!!!!! leave him alone.. your right he has to think about all of this everyday all day all night DROP IT!! he is hurting more then so know about so much!! I understand standing behind your child but let all of this drop let Gracie rest in peace as she is a beautiful angel that watches over those she loves and loves her let Jermey rest also I hope you find peace in your self Jill and same with Megan.. those with a clear heart have no guilt either... as with Heather i agree Megan should be sitting behind bars to she was home that night!! she had a phone to call 911 or as a non working mother she should have been up with that little girl!! I will alway believe she a angel and she was tried and had other problems and just felt safe in her daddys arms and went to go fill her duty and take care of all of us.. I for one miss her everyday and I look at Lilly and know she is there...
ps.. Jill your God is a hateful man you should seek him and u some help!!

Before you talk, listen. Before you react, think. Before you criticize, wait. Before you pray, forgive. Before you quit, try

Talk about here say. How bout you look at the facts. Multiple broken ribs on that child healed and rebroken found on autopsy. That is ABUSE! Jeremy admitted multiple times that he may have squeezed Gracie to hard. Told Megan that he squeezed her a lot to get her to stop crying. I would say that this matches the given evidence. Why take a plea if you are not guilty? If that was my child, I would never take a plea deal. Who would? Only GOD knows what he did, and I suggest you all stop throwing accusations around. What's done is done. Mr. Jonason has to live with himself, with what he did. He plead GUILTY. That's enough for me.
Did you get phone calls from Megan when she was terrified that Jeremy was going to kill her? I did. I have known her since grade school, and had never heard her that scared. Domestic abuse can happen to anyone. I know nobody wants to think that about their family or their friends, but anyone can be involved in abuse.

'GOD LIVES IN HEAVEN AND THE SATAN LIVES IN HELL' WOW you should not be talking to anyone about church. Do you go to church? If you do try to understand what you are taught. The Bible says in 1 Peter 5:8
"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:" now please enlighten me why would Satan be strolling around Hell looking for someone to devour? People in Hell are already damned why would he care about them? He is looking to corrupt the people who are still living, not the dead. The bible states in Revelation 20:10 that Satan will be placed in Hell after his 1000 year imprisonment in the bottomless pit. Please if you are going to claim what the Bible says learn your facts first. Jeremy MURDERED his daughter and he will get his punishment if not in this life he will get it from God. He suffocated his daughter i pray for him to suffer the same fate that she has!

I know Megan and let me tell you...Jeremy is innocent. Megan is a liar and psychotic. I have never met Jeremy and I would stand trial for him in a heart beat.

Just wanna say, I've been behind Jer every step of the way since I've known him. Everyone has the right to their own opinions and i'm not gonna judge anyone on what they said or try to cause any fights.
My belief is Jeremy did everything in his power to keep everyone he loved happy, and would never hurt any living thing ever. Him and I had a scare way back when and to say the least, I had no doubt in my mind that he would be anything less than amazing.
I absolutely cannot wait for him to be released so he can get the support and loving he needs.

you know you sit here and say that you are proud to have to brothers that you have well guess what so am i and she i do know what the bible says because she i do go to church. and for everyone that is staying behind my brother the whole step of the way i thank you with all my heart i have not seen him in 6 years and soon he will be free and i can't wait. the more support he has the easier it will be. and for everyone that talk is against him i hope that you do what you say and let gracie rest in peace you was only on this earth for 2 months and she did what she was suppose to do for god so she is in a best place now and there is no way that the 2 biggest people that are at fault can't hurt her anymore and just for the record jeremy is not one of those people. i love gracie and jeremy and i always will and to be one hundred % honest i love all of you that stay up for him and stand that ground because he needs it. jae i hope that you and your daughter find peace and realize that she is in a better place. THANKS AGAIN EVERYONE FOR KNOWING THE TRUTH.

I just seen the blue earth county jail roster and seen this man charged with manslaughter and he's getting out soon so I looked up his name he's a baby killer and should if got the rest of his life in prison in my opinion the fucker should of been murdered in prison think of the pain that little nine week old baby went thru if it was to much for a person to handle they should if called someone else to take care of her instead of murdering her! Then wait two hours after you know she's nit breathing to call authorities why? Cuz you need to try to get your story straight even if this was my brother or family I would be completely disgusted with the fuck who murdered a little innocent child who didn't get to live her life. He got away with murder four years is a slap in the wrist people sell pot and get more then four years. Ridiculous as well as you people who stick up for this animal this man should not be allowed back into society prison us where he belongs

Wow this is quite the debate...I dont personally know either of these people. I have an "outsider looking in" comment.

This whole situation is a terrible tragedy and of course there will be raw feelings between basically everyone,she was an innocent baby. "lea" I dont agree with you at all as stated by others "just bc the paper says it happened" DOES NOT MAKE IT TRUE...who are you to publicly judge him and cut him down??? as I tell my kids that is NOT OK!!! u said u had to look him up online to find out his situation and then you decide he is slime and garbage bc why??? oh yeah bc the paper said...no more likely bc you read al these personal opinions of the dude from the girls mother and you decided he did it.

I have no idea if he did it or not OR IF SHE DID IT or not. What i do know is that this guy went to prison for killing his daughter which he MAY HAVE OR MAY NOT HAVE killed. He will live with this for the rest of his life and to all u who have said he didnt seem to care or he didnt want her guess what he WILL NEVER EVER FORGET this and at some point it will hit him, my personal opinion is he thinks about it everyday. I understand taking a guilty plea w/out admitting guilt, so to all you who have said "well he pled guilty" NO ACTUALLY HE DIDNT PLEA GUILTY...HE TOOK A PLEA AGREEMENT to get it over with...2 DIFFERENT THINGS...if I was in his situation I would have probably done the same thing,another personal opinion of mine is if he really had killed his baby he probably woud have stuck out the trial to the very end, it would take a pretty cold heartless person to sit through a trial about the death of their baby and keep insisting innocence to very end and say they didnt do it when they did, that would be the kindof person i could see killing their baby.

I dont know bottom line is this happened to him and he will have this with him the rest of his life just leave him alone and let him build a fresh start, he will have enoughh shit to deal with amongst people that know himand listen to enough judgemnt...HE DOESNT NEED PEOPLE WHO DONT EVEN KNOW HIM CALLING HIM "SLIME" OR ANYTHING ELSE.

If he did it then he should never get out of prison, if he didnt then he lost his baby and 4 years that he will never get back. Untill you know for sure what happened "lea and others" leave him the fuck alone.

Also Jill, you lost a granbaby and that is hard and I understand that you have extrmely strong feelings which is expected, you need to remember that HE LOST A BABY as did ur daughter. Why did ur daughter stay with him if she said that he killed the baby? I understand domestic abuse, been there, and I also know first hand that domestic is not always a one way street, women can be just as bad as men unfortunately society blames domestic on men and we r taught never hit a women, I have taught my children it is not ok to hit women and it is not ok for women to hit men. If he was "an abusive, alcoholic, drug addict" why did she stay with him and let me ask you 2 Q's...these are also personal opinon Q's: Why hasnt your daughter said one thing on her about this? and at the time of the babies death could your daughter pass a drug test? How about today, could she pass a drug test today? I know parents dont like to look at their kids bc supposedly kids choices are a reflection of parenting...not true so thinking about it like that can you look at situation from a new prospective?

To answer your ? about my daughter passing a drug test....yes, I do know that she would pass a drug test. And she stayed with him for 2 years because she stood by him, she believed that he didn't harm Gracie! It wasn't until she went to visit him in prison and he told her he did squeeze Gracie that she could wrap her mind around this tragedy. I believe that in those 2 years, she didn't want to believe that her husband could do such an awful thing. Afterall, she lost her baby and her husband. After he told her the truth, she started to grieve all over again and so did I. With age comes wisdom....very true statement. So if you don't know either of them, how can you judge?????

I know Megan and she's low. She'd harm anyone if it meant getting ahead and getting attention. She tells lies and told Jeremy she'd be there for him then divorced him. She lies about her mother and family all of the time.

You are 100% right I HAVE NO RIGHT TO JUDGE HER cuz like we both said I dont know her, I guess my purpose was to let u know how it feels bc that is exactly what is being done to him, ecspecially online, I seriously think the internet is the devil in disguise. I will pray for you and ur family as well as him and his bc I am sure when he is out out and back on the streets and the possibility of bumping into each other might happen and all the feelings come back, stay strong and again I apologize for your loss, I couldnt even imagine....thx and judging isnt ok even when you know a person unless there is is fact/proof that it happened and there is the old "what goes around comes around" "karma" "fate" if he did this the truth ALWAYS comes out in the end
