Brothers in Memoriam
Jeremy Chatterton (F'02) served as the Delta Kappa Kappa Alumni Association President for three years. Jeremy's passing was a shock to everyone and the Fraternity mourns his loss deeply. When we think of the values that we all hold as Brothers of this great Fraternity, and think about what it takes to be a ∆K man, Jeremy Chatterton embodied every single characteristic. His leadership and charisma were contagious. He truly bled maroon. Jeremy dedicated countless hours working to maintain our house at 86 Sheldon Ave, including the installation of the new hardwood floor on the 1st floor, the remodeling of all of the 2nd floor bedrooms, and the installation of the new hot water heater. On top of his dedication to the house, Jeremy also played an influential role in the professional development of active brothers nearing graduation, offering an internship at his State Farm agency to approximately 10 brothers in order to give them real world experiences to bolster their resumes. He would always treat Brothers to dinner and drinks after they had reached achievements like graduating or being elected to EC positions. Jeremy constantly offered advice and words of encouragement to every brother that he met. It was his mission to help all of our Brothers become the best men that they could be.
Jeremy Chatterton was more than a Brother. He was a true friend, a mentor, a coach, a role model and an all around great man. Jeremy’s passing is shocking and tragic. We are extremely sad to even have to make this announcement. True leadership is only possible through honorable and upright living. That is exactly how Jeremy lived his life.
