  Noted events in his life were:

1. Newspaper: Evening Herald: Births: A son to Michael and Lorna (Steadman) Beacher of Norfolk, Va. Mr. Beacher is a former resident of Shenandoah., 11 Apr 1975, Shenandoah, Schuylkill, PA. 4

2. Residence: in 1993 in Mechanicsburg, Cumberland, PA. 3 4823 Virginia Rd, Mechanicsburg, PA, 17050-3075.

3. Newspaper: Patriot-News: Beacher helps Capital meet goal, 9 Aug 1993, Harrisburg, Dauphin, PA. 5 Jeremy Beacher is a pretty good midfielder, good enough to be a three-time Mid-Penn Division III All-Star during his Trinity High career.
He expected to play a vital role for the Capital scholastic soccer team in the Keystone State Games yesterday, though not this vital, and certainly not in this position.
But Beacher had no choice in the matter. Beacher, the midfielder, played goalkeeper, and helped guide Capital to a 2-1 victory over Delaware Valley in the gold medal game at Hampden Twp. Park.
He was forced into action because Capital's regular goalkeeper, Stuart Reynolds, suffered a concussion during a 2-0 win over Blue Mountain earlier in the day and the roster contained no reserve keeper. That left head coach Ernie Kerstetter with a sticky decision.
"The only keeper I took was Stu and that's because he has never been hurt to the point where he's missed a game," Kerstetter said. "I didn't know he had a mild concussion until an hour before the game."
Kerstetter chose Beacher as Reynolds' replacement, knowing Beacher played keeper once this year in a tournament. But that was the massive extent of his experience. Kerstetter looked into Beacher's eyes shortly before the game and detected some uncertainty.
"I was scared, very scared," Beacher admitted. "But goal is mostly instinct."
"I told him, I don't care if we get beat 6-0, do not take all of this on as your own responsibility," Kerstetter said. "It's not even your position. See if you can rise to the occasion."
After Del Valley's Alan Nicholl scored for a 1-0 lead in the opening minutes of play, Beacher felt the pressure mounting.
"That made me more nervous, but about two minutes after they scored I saved a breakaway and that relaxed me."
It wasn't long before Cumberland Valley's Chip Fohl knotted the score for Capital and then the defense took over. Capital's defense had been brilliant throughout the tournament, allowing just one goal, and stepped up again to help Beacher stave off intense Delaware Valley pressure.
"You saw intensity out there. They picked it up about seven levels," Kerstetter said.
