On Friday, May 21, 2021, Jereme Brent Joseph, 38, of Williamsburg, Virginia, slipped into eternal rest to be with the heavenly father and his mother at Riverside Regional Medical Center, Newport News, Virginia.
Born on April 14, 1983, Jereme was the oldest son of Christina and Craig Joseph Sr.
Although he was only 38 years old at the time of his death, Jereme touched many lives with his upbeat personality and desire to live life to the fullest.
Jereme was educated in the Williamsburg-James City County Public School System. He developed a strong passion for music at an early age and began learning the craft of being a DJ at the age of 12 and later learned to play drums with the James Blair Middle School Marching Band. Driven to perfect his passion, he soon became a well-known hometown DJ and music promoter, playing at many weddings and special events in the Tidewater and surrounding areas.
