GRAFTON, Ohio – Jeremy Mohr, 21, of Penfield Township in Lorain County, is in a Fort Wayne, Indiana hospital suffering paralysis after a freak accident this past Saturday night.
Jeremy and 18-year-old Mallorie Kastner, from Wabash, Indiana, were struck by a falling tree, as they sat on a hammock together in Lake Winona. Kastner was pronounced dead at the scene.
Mohr and Kastner are both students at Grace College and Theological Seminary.
Brenda Gerber, of Grafton, Ohio, is a lifelong friend of Mohr. Her son is his roommate at Grace College. She said Jeremy is a bright, funny, athletic college senior, majoring in sports management. Gerber said she watched him grow up with her sons and other boys from their area — playing football, volleyball, swimming and riding jet skis.
“He loves people and he loves life… He’s one of those kids that does not have a bad word about anyone,” said Gerber.
