JEROMY is an incredibly focused man. Pair this with his strong work ethic, and it makes for a very full and active life for him.

He is a Tech Ambassador and is also a founding member of the self-advocate group SASSY (Self-Advocates Sayin’ Something, Yeah!) at Ottawa County Board of DD.

Project STIR (Steps Towards Independence and Responsibility) is a leadership training led by and for people with disabilities. Jeromy has worked his way to being a trainer for Project STIR and helps give his peers the tools to advocate for themselves, work with others, and gain leadership skills.

During the covid pandemic Jeromy planned and led two virtual fun activities each week for We Thrive Together. This is an organization that believes that no one should suffer from isolation or loneliness. When their virtual schedule was downsized after pandemic restrictions were lifted, Jeromy decided he wasn’t ready to stop providing virtual activities. He now hosts his own personal podcast.

Jeromy enjoys sports and music. He has his own DJ business, Road Dog DJ, which allows him to share his music with others at conferences and parties. He is on the basketball, softball, and bowling teams for the Ottawa County Rockets. Jeromy is also a member of the Shriners and had a lot of fun volunteering his time a few weeks ago at their circus.

He works several days a week at a local convenience store, where he unloads the trucks and stocks the shelves. In his spare time Jeromy likes to go to casinos, movies and hang out with his friends.
