According to WKYC, Joshua served as Biological Sciences Editor for the yearbook, was a member of the Future Business Leaders of America, and sang in his church's choir.

The 23-year-old played three seasons as a reserve linebacker at the College of William & Mary, where he majored in chemistry.

Joshua was a science teacher at Hampton Christian High School, his friend Drew Barker told the Daily Press, saying he knew something was wrong earlier this week when the 23-year-old stopped responding to his messages.

"It was automatically heartbreaking when he wasn’t answering phone calls, because he was the most punctual, respectful, humble and reliable person I know," Barker said.

"We tried to hold out hope as long as we could. When we found out it was him, it was demoralizing trying to figure out how this happened.”

Baker said he drove to Joshua's townhouse, where he said he was one of the first people on the scene following the arrival of emergency medical personnel.

“It was touch-and-go for a while because they weren’t sure if it was him [in the townhouse] right off the bat,” Barker told the outlet.

“We tried to hold out hope as long as we could … When we found out it was him, it was demoralizing trying to figure out how this happened.”

According to the NFL's Twitter page, Jeremiah was in Africa at the time of his brother's death, working with former defensive end Ositadimma Osi Umenyiora on launching a developmental football camp in the country.

Jeremiah, 22, was drafted by the Browns in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

The Browns star has yet to publicly comment about his brother's death.
