Jeremiah "J J" J. Fleming

Published 3-19-14

ENID, Okla. — Funeral service for Jeremiah “JJ” J. Fleming, 26, of Covington, Okla., will be 2 p.m. Thursday, March 20, 2014, at United Methodist Church, Covington, with the Rev. Ruth Atterberry officiating. Burial will follow in Covington Cemetery under the direction of Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home.

JJ was born on Friday, Nov. 13, 1987, in Enid, Okla., four weeks premature and weighing only 5 lbs, 9 oz., too little for his big name, so he was quickly given the nickname of “JJ.”

Jeremiah was born with Wiskott-Aldirch Syndrome, which is an immune system deficiency. At the time of Jeremiah’s diagnosis, his parents John and Sara “Susie,” were told his life expectancy would be about five years of age. The average life expectancy for Wiskott-Aldrich is now 10 years.

JJ was 26, and had lived through several life threatening episodes. JJ passed away Sunday March 16, 2014. With having Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome as a baby. Jeremiah never went into public for his protection.

When it became apparent at the age of four that he was thriving, plans were made for him to begin going into the public.

His first school was Zion Lutheran Church Pre-School, and then attended Covington-Douglas Public School, grades kindergarten through high school, graduating in 2006. Jeremiah graduated salutatorian, with several honors.

After graduation, he continued to attend Autry Vo-Tech, where he attended drafting under the teaching of Jon Jones. During the class, he won a National Drafting contest with his electronic schematic.

When JJ was a just a toddler, he quickly displayed a tremendous love for trains and computers, neither of which left him his entire life. Some trips were taken for JJ to enjoy the trains. One was taken when he was 4 years old, when he was able to ride a Centennial train from Tulsa to Enid, spending the night in Enid, then returning to Tulsa the next day.

Jeremiah loved his computer and electronic games. To many, it may have seemed a waste of time and money to many, but that was JJ’s life and entrainment. If anyone had a computer question, JJ would do his best to answer or solve the situation. His knowledge seemed endless and totally comprehensive. If he didn’t know the answer immediately, he knew how to research and find the answer. His talents will be greatly missed.

This young man, whose life was so very brief on this earth, will be greatly missed by many, none more so than his mom. She requests that, when you see her, be kind, be patient and be understanding. Do talk about JJ. He was a part of this great earth and a huge part of his mother’s life. Please don’t forget about him.

He is survived by his mother, Sara of Covington; father, John and wife Verdilla of Booneville, Ark.; two uncles, Jack and Elaine Cline and Jerry and Diane Cline of Oklahoma City, and cousin Kathryn Cline; several other family and friends; and his two cats, Taco and Sunny.
