The “other” Jeremy is an ebullient Minnesota farm boy with a big emphasis on building community. A huge Grateful Dead fan, the loss of Jerry Garcia in 1995 resulted in Jeremy leaving the Midwest in the Spring of 1996, moving westward to Portland searching for his people. He soon found himself at The Laurelthirst Public House, where his love of music and the community that surrounds it began to grow. Jeremy soon found himself promoting shows and running event services for musical gatherings locally in Portland. Entrenched in the Portland music scene, he connected with Jeremy Wilson while producing what is now the JWF’s annual Gram Jam.
Building community and sustainability go hand in hand with Jeremy, and in the rest of his free time he operates a small hobby farm in Corbett in the West End of The Columbia River Gorge with his wife Amy, and their son Sawyer. Their farm frequently hosts musical events, featuring an array of talented musicians from around the pacific northwest and beyond. His day job is as the Director of Distribution for Imperfect Foods, a mission focused company working hard to eliminate food waster and create a better food system for everyone.
