Jeremy knew at this point it was a suicide mission for the hijackers and they had to do something, fast. While still on the phone with his wife he said his last goodbyes and asked her to live a good life and to take care of their infant daughter. Even while facing his emanate demise he was making jokes about having butter knife left over from breakfast to use as a weapon. In that moment Jeremy had to make a choice.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
