Fun Stuff

Think twice before challenging Jeremy to a game of poker as he has played in the World Series of Poker several times, including, most recently, the 2021 Main Event in Las Vegas. Having grown up outside of Boston, Jeremy is also an avid fan of all of Boston’s teams and he has attended 5 of the Patriots Super Bowl victories. He likes to say that the Patriots need him in the stands to assure themselves of a victory.  On the weekends, when he isn’t golfing, you’ll find Jeremy taking long walks with his wife and their 2 dogs, or relaxing with a nice cigar on his porch.
