Jeremy has spent his entire life around the funeral industry. The son of Butch and Jan Heath, he developed a passion for wanting to serve people at a young age. A Paragould native, Jeremy attended Arkansas State University where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management: Leadership. After completing his degree, Jeremy spent over a decade in law enforcement. A majority of that time was spent as a StateTrooper with the Arkansas State Police. During this time, he returned to school to receive his MBA in Human Resources. He spent several years patrolling the highways before moving into the Executive Protection Division, where he provided protective security to Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe and his family. To spend more time at home, Jeremy began a career in the financial industry. He spent a couple of years as a Financial Advisor for Edward Jones. It was during this time Jeremy realized his passion for funeral service was still strong. He made the transition back to the funeral home where he is in charge of operations. Since returning to the funeral home, Jeremy has been participating in Leadership Paragould through Paragould Regional Chamber of Commerce. He has also joined the Board of Directors for House of Virtue, Inc. He has an Arkansas Funeral Director's License, Arkansas Health/Life Insurance License, and is a member of the National Funeral Director's Association.


Jeremy has been married to his wife, Tara, since 2004. They have two sons, Jax and Auggie. During his spare time, he loves spending time with his family, watching Cardinal baseball, and howling his Red Wolves to victory. He serves as a T-ball and soccer coach, both of which he will continue to do for a few years. He also volunteers for the Greene County Rescue Squad and actively serves on the Steering Committee for Ozark Mission Project, a Christian youth mission camp in Arkansas. Jeremy and his family attend church at First United Methodist Church in Paragould.
