Jeremy Delle was a 15-year-old sophomore who had just recently transferred to a new school. On 8 January, 1991 he came to school with a .357 Magnum. His friends in school had described him as “acting sad” this day. He had arrived to school late that day and was told by his teacher to go and receive an attendance slip from the office. Instead of getting an attendance slip, he went to his locker and retrieved his gun. During his second period English class, he stood up, walked to the front of the classroom, and informed the teacher: “Miss, I got what I really went for,“  before putting the gun in his mouth and pulling the trigger. This tragedy inspired the Pearl Jam song, "Jeremy.”

One of his suicide notes:
“To whoever I decide this is to, I have a lot going on, a little too much more than what I can handle I’m in too much pain, and I just want YOU to understand why I’m doing this, I don’t hate myself I hate what’s going on in my life my parents, a new school I feel like I don’t fit in nowhere. I realize that there will be friends that will try to ask me why because I feel like I have to, I feel it’s the only way. I rather end my own life than others and that’s what its gonna come down to so I’m taking the shame out of myself. Thanks to the only people that was ever good to me, the people that was there for me. I figure it’s been so many ya’ll wont even know I’m gone and as for ones that tried to hurt me you didn’t. I know Barnett is gonna ask me to go get a pass but I ain’t getting that damn pass I’m getting the gun and the next time you see me I’m going to blow my fucking brains out. I want my blood to shed on everybody, I want everybody to feel my pain and seeing me die will make them in pain. To my dad shit what kind of shit is that, and my mom, I’m not going to waste my breath well goodbye see all in better days”
