I'm sorry to hear about this, a year on! I think I shared an office with Jeremy back in 1988-1990, along with Stephen Pells? He got me some temporary work doing taxi surveys, to supplement my postgraduate research grant. I remember standing at taxi ranks outside nightclubs in Cambridge in the early hours of Friday & Saturday night counting the number of people waiting in the queue for a taxi! I enjoyed discussions with him about Black Country Mild and Black Country beers, as I studied at Aston University in Birmingham before coming to ITS at Leeds. He was also interested in music - another of my interests - I remember discussing Recorder music with him, as he played the recorder - not a school one! My condolences go to his immediate family.

I am very sorry to hear of Jeremy's death. I knew Jeremy through his work for Leeds AUT and then later UCU and he was an immensely likeable, warm and infectious person. For a long time he was a fixture of the local union branch. I have moved on and lost touch with a lot of the academic world so didn't hear of his death at the time but moved into the world of Transport where, inevitably, his work popped up on my radar so i thought I'd see how he was getting on, and discovered this. I am greatly saddened by this news but this is a lovely tribute to someone i remember very fondly. Jonathan White (now RMT)

Jeremy was one of my PhD supervisors. He demonstrated by example the importance of being down-to-earth, approachable and accessible to students.
