Jeremy Shultz Succumbs to Injuries

Freelance cameraman Jeremy Shultz, 37, died today. He had been fighting to overcome second- and third-degree burns over 91% of his body, which he sustained protecting his family from a fire at his home in South Carolina on Dec. 30.

Well known for his work on the NFL, college football, and college basketball for CBS Sports and ESPN, Shultz was a highly respected member of the sports-broadcasting community. He is survived by his long-time companion, Maryann; their 4-year-old son, Dallas; and Maryann’s 11-year-old daughter, Cinnamin.

In an effort to help Shultz’s family in this crisis, a tax-deductible fund has been set up. Jeremy’s Fund, a designated fund of the Alma Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity, is requesting that checks be sent to the following address:

Bryant Bank
ATTN: Heike Harris for Jeremy’s Fund
1550 McFarland Blvd. North
Tuscaloosa, AL 35406

Checks should be made out to “Jeremy’s Fund,” and all donations are welcome.
