I do believe I have exactly what you are looking for, this Instructable has two circuits that will turn on a fan, and they will work with any remote. In step 6 the circuit turns on the fan and keeps the fan on until you turn off the fan with the remote.

Simply use a Klixon thermal switch to control a quiet squirrel_cage fan right off the mains !
Be sure to select the temperature of the Klixon to activate the fan carefully.

Klixons are used to control in wall gas heater fans.

Use a thermostat in the box.
