Jeremy spent around 10 hours a day on his board cruising all over Boston. It wasn't long until this teen sensation was doing flip tricks down sets of stairs and buildings. He moved to California when he was 15 to focus on his skating career. Jereme quickly established himself on the westcoast as he started riding with another up-and-comer, Paul Rodriguez Jr., and scored himself sponsorships to Girl Skateboards and DVS Shoes.

Jereme Says..."Yeah, I'm satisfied with my skating and I don’t really care if someone else is out there getting way gnarlier as long as I'm alright and on my point. I mean, everyone has those times when they slump and are a little rusty, I just try and sustain and remain on point, always getting better than you were two days ago or something."
