Jeremy graduated from Weber State University with a degree in Logistics and Operations management. He works as a shipping manager for the LDS Distribution Center. Jeremy enjoys playing and watching basketball and hunting and fishing.
Jeremy and Nicole met playing basketball. Nicole was home from school working for the summer and Jeremy had a basketball group he played with regularly. Nicole had a friend who was the daughter of a neighbor to Jeremy’s dad and this neighbor knew about the regular basketball group. So he asked if Nicole and her friend could come play with the group too. After they had played basketball together a few times, Jeremy asked her out on a date. They started dating in May and dated all summer. Then Nicole went back to school. They continued dating long distance via email and phone calls and got engaged the next May. They were married four months later in September in the Salt Lake Temple. They have been married for 18 years.
Jeremy and Nicole have four children: Kaleb, Dylan, Kelby, and Rynn.
