Hi I'm Jeremy

I am a university professor who injures people for research. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Montana, grew up in Eastern Oregon, served a mission in New Jersey, and now live in Colorado. I am the proud father of four children - boy, girl, boy, boy. They keep my wife and I plenty busy between soccer, ballet, basketball, baseball, and cub scouts, but we love every minute of it. I work at a university in our community where I am employed as an assistant professor and program director. I really enjoy what I do and love to spend time helping the youth of today become better. I am a firm believer that education changes lives and a glad that I get to do that on a daily basis.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a member of the LDS church, so this is the only religion I have ever known. Throughout my youth I always went to church because that is what we did as a family. As a teenager I gained a testimony of the Book of Mormon, which changed attending church for me. Having that testimony also helped me through several trying experiences wherein I made mistakes that many youth do. Because I knew the Book of Mormon was true, I knew that my Savior Jesus Christ lived and loved me. That knowledge has strengthened me more than once and has carried me through many difficult situations over the years. So, why am I a Mormon? Because I know the Book of Mormon is true and life is so much better with the gospel in it.

How I live my faith

I grew up in a small town in Eastern Oregon. I had very few friends that were LDS, but several friends that knew I was. That was a strength to me in so many ways. I moved from Eastern Oregon many years ago, but I still find strength in being one of only a few LDS individuals in my community. I do not shy away from letting people know that I am LDS and strive to live each day in such a way that there is evidence of that.
