Jeremy Blake Pittman

October 1, 1981 — April 17, 2024

Homerville

Jeremy Blake Pittman, 42, of Homerville passed away, April 17, 2024, at Emory St. Joseph’s Hospital in Atlanta after an illness. He was born in Ware County to Neil and Debbie Holton Pittman on October 1, 1981. 

Blake was a 2000 graduate of Clinch County High School. For the past decade, he has worked with the Clinch County News and Atkinson County Citizen newspapers, serving as editor of both in recent years. He won several statewide awards while working with The News and Citizen. Blake also volunteered as a community coach, assisting the Clinch County Panther football program in a variety of ways over the years. This past football season, he also served as "The Voice of the Panthers" on WBTY's radio broadcasts of games. Blake was a fixture at almost every CCHS athletic event, loved the Panthers and Pantherettes, and served as a mentor to many of the community's young people.

A talented musician, Blake served several churches over the years in their choir, band, or in leading the music.  He was a member of Homerville Free Will Baptist Church.

Blake loved to bring people joy by making them laugh – which he did often, wherever he was.
