It was my privilege to have known Jeremy Marshall ever since, some 37 years ago, I became associate minister at East London Tabernacle Baptist Church (ELT), which Jeremy attended.
During his time at ELT, Jeremy met and married his wife Jeanette, with whom he would have three children: Naomi, Nat, and Sam.
Sadly, Jeremy’s life was cut short after the long and gruelling treatment for his cancer. Over the years we kept up the friendship and ended up working together as trustees of several Christian charities.
Jeremy was greatly gifted by God. He was a fine preacher, but although many thought he could have been a gospel minister, he chose to stay in so-called secular work. Jeremy worked in banking, eventually becoming CEO of Hoare’s Bank in London.
