NEVER QUIT. NEVER GIVE UP.
We honor the memory of Jeremiah Duncan by providing college scholarship funding to youth in the
Central Savannah River Area (CSRA).
Jeremiah was a motivated athlete and college student who lost his life at the age of 20 due to senseless
gun violence. It was his perseverance and support of others that inspired his community, and
subsequently his family, to offer this aid.
The Duncan's motto is and will always be, “Never quit, Never give up”. This is why we as a family cannot and must not quit on Jeremiah. We will work diligently to carry on his legacy by building this Sports Foundation to help youth further their education as well as take a stand against gun violence. Together, with your help – We Must and We Can! If we can change one heart, we can save a life for Jeremiah.
Details of the scholarship program will be released in the fall 2020.
Quote from Jeremiah
There was a man called Jeremiah. He was a man with a healthy dose of self-confidence and was full of good advice. Many didn't know that he had to suffer several setbacks before he became the wonderful person everybody saw.
Jeremiah Duncan “JD” was a dynamic, energetic, and supportive aspiring college athlete at USC Aiken. He was passionate about people as well as sports.
He discovered his love for baseball at the age of 4 and later became a dual-sport athlete at Silver Bluff High School. He also had a relationship with God, which he chose to maintain while in college by getting baptized and being a part of a church community.
Jeremiah’s life was tragically cut short when he was taken from us on February 4, 2020 as a result of senseless violence.
