In Memoriam- Jeremy Goldman

Jeremy Goldman, of blessed memory, was light and laughter for everyone who knew him. A true mensch, Jeremy’s warmth, humor, generosity of spirit and larger-than-life personality endeared him to family, friends and colleagues alike. He cherished his wife of 20 years, Debra, and his three kids: Braden (17), Dylan (15) and Makena (11). On the evening of November 16, Jeremy died unexpectedly.
    Jeremy was a criminal defense attorney who successfully represented clients facing charges ranging from misdemeanors to serious felonies. An exceptional lawyer, Jeremy had an easy way about him that made juries relate to him, colleagues adore him and clients like and trust him. He earned his J.D. from Western State University School of Law in 1995 after earning a B.A. in Political Science from University of California, Irvine, in 1992. Jeremy started his career with the Orange County Public Defender’s Office, and opened his own firm, Goldman Defense, in 2007.
    Jeremy was an active member of Shir Ha-Ma’alot, which he and Debra joined in 2003. He was president of Northwood Little League and coached teams for more than 10 years. An active participant in Provisors professional networking organization, Jeremy served as group leader for Newport Center 2.
    Family was Jeremy’s priority, and you could often find him at Angels games with his kids. He was an inspiration and mentor for many, both professionally and personally. His leadership and love for his community, the dignity with which he treated each individual, and the joy and exuberance with which he lived life, characterize Jeremy Goldman. May his memory be for a blessing.
