Taylor was a vibrant, beautiful 27 year old single mother who lost her life to a senseless act of a selfish person who lives life to party! She has two beautiful boys, Chase age 5 and Tanner age 10 months. Unfortunately, Taylor reconnected with this friend whom she knew from grade school. This so called friend, ultimately ended Taylor’s life. Our daughter didn’t have a clue as to the extent or background that Jeremy possessed with alcohol. Taylor’s life ended abruptly on June 29th, 2018 at the hands of Jeremy who was once again driving drunk, not to mention that he was still on probation for his last DUI from 2017. His blood alcohol was 3 times the legal limit. You see our daughter was his fourth DUI.
He didn’t even possess a valid drivers license. He didn’t follow the punishment that was set forth by the court system in 2017 for his DUI. Following his multiple DUI arrests and during the probation for them he was caught driving and was caught driving without insurance but that is exactly where it stopped!! Until he killed our daughter. So, Jeremy was on probation for his last DUI, plus he didn’t have a valid drivers license, nor did he have car insurance.
How many chances does a person get? Our daughter had one. She didn’t get the opportunity for multiple chances, needless to say, Jeremy has had chance, after chance, after chance and still can’t follow the rules or guidelines that other citizens must follow but he was granted a specialized drivers license in June of 2017 which allowed him to drive between the hours of 9:00 am until 2:00 pm to and from a doctors appointment and or a religious function.
He killed our daughter at 9:57 pm.
