Jeremy Ruehlemann, a camp counselor and prominent fashion model at Soul Artist, has reportedly passed away. Gianni Simpson, a close friend of the successful model and Fashionista, announced his death on January 22, 2023.
Mourning his death Gianni Simpson wrote on Facebook that he has been “trying to gather” his thoughts and “what even to say” after hearing the news that his childhood friend Jeremy Ruehlemann had died.
They met when they were 15 and 17, although Simpson doesn’t say which of them was the older.
“We bonded over feeling like our parents couldn’t deal with us as trouble teenagers,” he writes, “and sent us both away for four weeks to OTC.”
OTC stands for Odyssey Teen Camp. It’s an organization that runs summer camp programs for teens in Massachusetts. Gianni writes that he and Jeremy were “inseparable” during their four weeks there. They bonded over music, sports, fashion and tattoos: “What Gianni liked, Jerm liked, and what Jerm liked, Gianni liked.”
“I love you forever,” he signs off in his Facebook tribute. “And the news of hearing you gone really broke my heart. You’ll forever be in my heart.”
Jeremy Ruehlemann died at the age of 27. He was born in Mahwah, New Jersey. From 2013 to 2017, he attended Rowan University, where he fell in love with psychology and the workings of the mind. But after four years of his five-year program, Jeremy dropped out to start a successful career as a model. He’s forever thankful for that decision.
