Memorial for H. Jeremy Schneider

Organized by: Rob Viola

Rob's Photo

EVENT DATE Oct 03, 2015

THE STORY:

This campaign serves as a memorial for H. Jeremy Schneider, a Mainer, a Montrealer, a New Yorker, an intensely loyal friend, a great lover and collector of film, music, literature, ideas and the arts, a partner-in-crime with an unquenchable thirst for life, a prolific traveler, a keeper of collective memory, a Red Sox maniac who possessed a throwing arm of terrifying power.

He died in Queens, NYC at the age of 43 after a fearless and unstoppable multi-year battle with cancer.

The funds raised here will first purchase a seat plaque at his beloved Film Forum, permanently commemorating Jeremy at the classic New York City indie repertory theater where he was a fixture.

Funds will also be used for his memorial party on October 3rd, a grand send-off, open to all his friends and family that will feature live music, original songs composed in his memory, a video tribute and one last chance for all the members of his diverse tribe to gather in a setting that Jeremy would approve: a raucous party with loud music, a well-stocked bar and all his favorite people.

Any additional funds will be donated in his memory to the Museum of the Moving Image in Jeremy's neighborhood of Astoria, to establish a seat plaque in their screening room.

I wasn't lucky enough to know you a long time, but in that short time I was blessed for having known you. You might be "going into that great unknown mystery" first but you'll still be with me when I'm racing and when I'm trying to help others. 3 years ago
