The family of Jeremy Edward Mahony has requested the presence of the Patriot Guard Riders to honor this American Hero; it will be our honor to do so.

Jeremy was born in Pueblo, Colorado on 14 May 1951, and entered eternal rest on 13 March 2023.

Jeremy enlisted in the US Navy 22 December 1972, and was honorably discharged as a MM2 on 21 August 1978. While deployed, he was stationed on board ship in Vietnam, and received the Vietnam Campaign Ribbon.

During Jeremy’s civilian life, he was a FAA Master Rigger that packed ejection seat parachutes for Flight Research, and the Jet Test Pilot School at the Mojave Spaceport. He worked for Aerospace Equipment Research Organization (A.E.R.O.)  where they were doing test drops working on the next Military Parachute Recovery System. He was a Gold Medal winning skydiver with over 3500 dives. He was also a freefall photographer filming many skydiving teams while they practiced for competition. He loved to flyfish, float tube, and ocean fish, owning an ocean vessel with his best buddy Smoley…The Smoking’ Mahoney! He loved hunting for deer and antelope.

Jeremy is survived by his wife, Kathie Mahony of 35 years, and had no children.

You do not have to be a Veteran or a motorcycle rider to attend this mission. All PGR members are welcome. We encourage those who do not ride to attend in your car. If this will be your first mission go to the initial staging area and you will be briefed there, by the Ride Captain (RC). Dress for motorcycle riding or dress casually if you are driving a cage (car). Please feel free to attend any portion of this mission you can. Please ride/drive safely.

Please remember that our mission is to stand tall and silent, and with honor and respect for our Heroes. No talking, smoking, or cell phone use during the flag line or service. Please keep radios off and engine noise to a minimum. Observe the 15 MPH speed limit. Remember, cemeteries are hallowed ground. Show respect to all who are there, not just the ones we are honoring.
