Jeremy Moseley’s life was one of service, whether volunteering for Habitat for Humanity or at his local animal shelters, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said in releasing more details about the 29-year-old police candidate who died during training on Tuesday.
“A man deeply committed and eager to serve as a guardian of our community,” Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney said Wednesday.
Moseley died after collapsing during state-mandated physical fitness training at the Police and Fire Training Academy on Shopton Road, authorities said.

CMPD training staff and Charlotte Fire Department personnel immediately began to deliver aid, and called Medic. Moseley was taken by Medic to Carolinas Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
CMPD is working with the medical examiner’s office to determine the cause of death.
Police, meanwhile, have released more information about Moseley’s life.
He moved to the Charlotte area last year with plans to join the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. CMPD hired him just last week, on June 27.
“Jeremy’s family recalls his commitment to community, volunteering with the Habitat for Humanity and local animal shelters,” police said in a news release. “Neighbors remember him as a pillar of the community.”
Moseley is survived by his mother, Zorayda, his father, Lloyd, and his younger brother, Marc Anthony, police said.
The funeral is scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday at St. Matthew Catholic Church, 8015 Ballantyne Commons Parkway.
