Jeremy Durrand Davis was born November 17, 1986, in Chesterfield, MO to Clarence (Jin) Davis and the late Mary Elizabeth Davis (Williams), he departed this earthly life on December 11, 2023, in Austin, TX surrounded by his family. Jeremy gave his life to Christ at the age of 18 on a youth trip with Lafayette Church of Christ.
At an early age Mary and Clarence realized Jeremy’s full potential and made it their mission to ensure that he had the best environment and education to allow him to flourish and succeed. They enrolled Jeremy in MICDS to enhance his educational experience. After a few years of attendance, Jeremy’s love for his friends and desire for a sense of community that matched his passion led him to return to Rockwood School District. During that time, he was a scholar athlete at Marquette High School and continued to excel academically earning an academic scholarship to Truman State University where he also played football. Whenever anyone would talk about Jeremy’s academic ability, everyone said, he scored an 32 on his ACT with his eyes closed and never had to study as hard as we did. He was always referred to as the smartest man I know. Ultimately, Jeremy decided to return to St. Louis to pursue his true passion, Entrepreneurship. It was perfect timing, Jeremy was able to help mold and shape his nephew, Rashon. Spending summers, evenings and weekends caring for him in his own special way; knee football, squats and many days giving him the tools to be the man he is today. Not only was he a phenomenal male influence in Rashon’s life, but he was also blessed to care for Devin, Layla and Alyssa as young children. He often stepped in to get them ready for school, take them to games and events and they will never forget the “quiet game”. He was the epitome of the best uncle. He loved them with all of his heart and was always providing them with so much wisdom, guidance and tough love.
As he began to become ingrained in the fitness community in St. Louis, he made so many friends that became family, but the most pivotal time was at Club Fitness where he met the love of his life, Morgan. He was determined to make her “like'' him. Not only did she like him, Jeremy and Morgan were married on August 5, 2017. Jeremy and Morgan’s marriage flourished, only months later they made the decision to build upon their foundation, passion for fitness and Jeremy’s entrepreneurial spirit, and move to Austin, TX in 2018 to open their own boutique gym, TruFusion, which is the most successful and profitable gym in the Trufusion franchise. Over the years they grew so much and touched so many people in Austin as their TruFam came together. Jeremy never stopped trying to explore ways to expand his full potential, he joined his High School classmates and began to consult and open additional gyms in the Austin area in 2022. Having established a firm foundation, Jeremy and Morgan decided that it was time to grow this amazing family and they are expecting Jeremy’s first and only daughter, Maia Roby Davis in May of 2024. Jeremy was loving, kind, generous, caring and most of all determined and purpose driven. Jeremy started each day with his list and white board, and by any means necessary everything and everyone would be taken care of before he closed his eyes to rest.
Jeremy was preceded in death by his mother, Mary Elizabeth Davis, grandmothers, Mary Francis Williams, Leila Mae McFarland and Lucille Williams. He leaves to cherish his memory his wife, Morgan Davis (Callender), his father Clarence (Jincai) Davis, sister’s Frances (Brandon) Davis-Williams, Ykama (John Wilson), his grandfather, Bartow Williams, Sr., his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Bruce and Robin Callender, brother-in-law, Garrett (Leah) Callender, nephews, Rashon Davis, Devin Wilson and Ozzy Callender, nieces Layla and Alyssa Wilson and Chayse Williams and his loving favorite fur babies, LuLu and Leo. He will not only be missed by a host of aunts, uncles and cousins, Jeremy’s heart was so full of love that he has far too many friends, family colleagues and other acquaintances to mention.
