National Guard Soldier Takes His Own Life

June 29, 2011

06/30/11 An active duty National Guard Soldier from Plymouth took his own life early Wednesday morning during a domestic disturbance.

The Marshall County Police Department received a 9-1-1 call form the 10,000 block of Muckshaw Road in reference to a domestic disturbance. Officers were dispatched to Muckshaw Road and while in-route to the scene were informed that Jason Nemeth took his own life. When officers arrived on the scene they found Nemeth laying in the yard with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

The incident is still under investigation. The Marshall County Sheriff’s Department was assisted at the scene by Plymouth Police, Fire and EMS.

Jason Nemeth was a 2003 graduate of PHS. He served his country as an active duty National Guardsman and had served in Afghanistan until December 2010. He worked for the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department until recently as a dispatcher.

Many of his friends and co-workers believe that he was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

Arrangements for Sergeant Nemeth are incomplete at the Johnson- Danielson Funeral Home.  A complete obituary story will be available Thursday afternoon at

    What a very sad circumstance! I think there is a need to raise awareness of the Post Traumatic Stress disorder and offer our veterans help with this. It is one thing to be able to save a higher percentage than in previous conflicts, but it can’t stop after they leave the hospital or the service.

    How sad. We need to do more for the returning service members.

    Jason, thank you for your service.
