A group of a hundred or so youth and adults held a candlelight vigil tonight at Jeremy Duncker‘s favorite spot in Carteret Park. The Glen Ridge High School senior’s nickname, J-Dunk, was spelled out in candles in the sand of the ball field. His sneakers, which have hung on a wire for many years, now served as a memorial. Friends have also created a R.I.P. J-Dunk page on Facebook.
According to the Glen Ridge Voice, Duncker, 18, was found under the Freeman Parkway bridge Tuesday night. Cause of death has not been released.
