If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again. Until we meet again...

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Josh Jernigan, 32, born on December 16, 1984 and passed away on December 30, 2016.

Josh was incredibly intelligent, strong, brave, loving, caring, and generous. He was the definition of a true gentleman. Kindness was his trademark, he was always willing to help those in need. Josh loved all living things, he used to called Chance (the cat) his "baby" and spent countless hours cuddling with him. He was the type of person that would learn things so quickly just by reading about them, he was always able to fix anything mechanical or computer-related. Cars and video games were a big passion of his, he even made everlasting friendships with people he never met in person. Everyone that remembers him the first thing that comes to their minds is how he gave the biggest warmest hugs and how genuine they were.

His absence is a silent grief; his life a beautiful memory. We will remember him forever.

"Josh. My brother. I know you're watching over me and you know the weight of sadness I feel when I think of how lively a person you once were. We were thick as thieves bro. It still hurts the heart to think of you as not here. It's been two months already. Just know that you are not forgotten and will always live on in memories."

"We had some conversations about how he didn't like his art class due to bad teachers, I used to explain him that teachers usually dont have any idea about art history and their definition. We used talk about how Marines teach you be a better person and help your fellows. Within our intelectual conversations, about art, science and radio comunications, he had this sarcastic  humor, where I can always tell he was a very interesting and inteligente man. Will miss you bro."

"I am so very sorry for your loss. Josh sounded like such a wonderful man. Our Creator's purpose was for us to live forever, so having to cope with the death of a loved one feels very unnatural. Soon, we will be able to experience the truthfulness of Gods promise "And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing" (1 Corinthians 15:26). What better hope than to know that God will very soon bring an end to death and all the pain we face (Revelation 21:4). My sincere condolences to all who knew and loved Josh. For additional comfort from the scriptures, I invite you to please visit"
