Jeremiah has not missed a step since being forced to retire early from the NFL in
2013, due to injury. Since then, Jeremiah has had an immeasurable impact on the youth. He started mentoring student-athletes to help them set goals on and off the field, provided financial literacy on how to obtain scholarships and raised awareness on emotional health.
As a result of his mentoring efforts, Jeremiah developed a plan of action that help student-athletes focus on performance training and leadership skills and equipped coaches with the essentials to motivate students. In 2016, the L.E.A.D. was launched and the program is currently in NYC schools. Jeremiah serves as CEO and founder of The L.E.A.D., as well as a current Dean of Students. He is also a most sought-after motivational speaker, and a certified life coach. He is a native NYer, married to Jillian, and Dad to Jonah.
