He got the news while in Ghana and immediately flew home to be with his family.
The brothers were described as having a very close relationship.
Drew Barker, a high school teammate of Joshua’s, spoke to the Associated Press about the brothers.
“I don’t know of anyone who would be closer than those two. And if Josh wasn’t at (a Browns game), he was watching it on TV or sending in prayers before the game and talking to him after the game.’’
“When we were kids, if you ever saw Josh, you would turn your head 360 and you would see Jeremiah somewhere — they were always together. They were never not sticking together. They always played every sport together. (With) basketball, they were like a dynamic duo on the court. And then you had them on the football field: One on one side and one on the other…They were literally thick as thieves in the sense of sticking together and having each other’s back. They were best friends as well.”
Our continued thoughts, prayers, and well wishes go out to Jeremiah and the entire Owusu-Koramoah family during this difficult time.
