Born and raised in Ottawa, Jeremy grew up on the streets of Nepean. He got involved in politics at the young age of 14 in order to help his younger brother, Dillon, who has autism.

More recently, he served as Policy Advisor on Autism to the Minister of Health, Rona Ambrose, and helped put together a Working Group that is currently developing a national autism strategy. Beyond politics, Jeremy has also been an active community member, volunteering for over 15 years with CHEO and Children-at-Risk, sitting on Board of Directors of l’Arche Ottawa and Youth Ottawa, and running a Max Keeping-led initiative known as the CTV Youth Advisor Board.
