Hi I'm Jeremy Zaugg

In the Military, I’ve been to Iraq and Afghanistan. I’m a filmmaker, a business owner, a Master Mason, and a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up preforming, I've always loved attention. My first lead was the part of baby Jesus in the Nativity. In High School I did theater, and I was the Mascot. I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps as a Private First Class (E2). After serving for six years in the Marines, I was Honorably Discharged as a Sergeant (E5). In 2006 I enlisted in the Army’s Military Intelligence where I studied Arabic and French at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California. I've deployed to Iraq, Kuwait, Okinawa, Australia, The Philippines, Germany, and Afghanistan where I received the Army Commendation Medal for my work as an interrogator and Team Leader. I finished my military service as a Sergeant First Class (E7) in the Utah Army National Guard, and graduated from the University of Utah in Film. I love the outdoors, I own a small business selling camping, hiking, and climbing gear. I married my eternal companion in the Salt Lake Temple, July 2000. I also love the Boy Scouts of America. I'm an Eagle Scout, and have served as a Scout Master and on Wood Badge staff. I'm a Marine, a filmmaker, a business owner, a Master Mason, and I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was fifteen I had a lot of questions about my purpose in life. I was reading from the Bible and prayed about the questions I had. I had a powerful and gentle experience that I can't deny. I knew that God lived, that Jesus was the Christ, and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was the true church. This changed my life and has helped me learn to love others as Christ did.

How I live my faith

I love to go to church every Sunday. I really find strength there that helps me the rest of the week. When I was a teenager I was really helped by one of my church leaders, and I try to help others as I teach the youth in my church.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

My wife and I were married in the Salt Lake Temple. We believe that family can be together forever. My wife and I lost our first child, but we know we can be with her again in heaven. Show more Show less
