Jeremy was born and raised in Old Metairie, LA. He graduated from Jesuit High School in New Orleans in 2006 and Louisiana State University in 2011 with a degree in Construction Management. Throughout his high school years Jeremy had dreams of practicing medicine but a series of circumstances landed him in the construction department at LSU. During high school and college, he worked through summer and winter breaks for his best friend’s residential electrical company where Jeremy gained real-world experience and learned the value of working with his hands; this is when he knew he could find a way to make construction his profession.
After graduating from LSU, Jeremy returned to New Orleans to start his career in the commercial construction market. He spent the next decade working across all aspects and types of construction – from project management and on-site supervision to preconstruction project management and coordinating design teams for design build projects.
