Motorcycle Ride Remembers Young Vermonter

Jeremy Boquet died unexpectedly in 2015; doctors later discovered he had cancer

ESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. - A very special motorcycle ride took place through Vermont Sunday morning.

Starting at the Green Mountain Harley Davidson in Essex Junction, over a dozen motorcyclists revved their engines for Team Jeremy. The ride was to benefit the Relay for Life of Chittenden County.

Team Jeremy was formed in memory of a young Vermonter, Jeremy Boquet.

Jeremy died unexpectedly in 2015, after a blood clot stopped his heart. After he died, doctors discovered he had cancer.

His parents, Gina and John say Sunday's event was to honor his commitment to caring and giving.

"Bringing that into an event like this is just a natural extension of remembering him and remembering how he worked with us to help the community as much as we could," said John Boquet.

"There was never anybody that Jeremy met that wasn't a friend. If he didn't know them by the time he said hello, they were friends," said Gina Boquet.

His parents say Jeremy, a movie reviewer, was a huge Star Wars fan. It's why there were plenty of storm troopers walking around on Sunday.

Those riding went all the way to Enosburg and back; about a three hour round trip. All proceeds from the benefit will go towards Jeremy's Relay team.
