At 19, Jeremy tore three major ligaments in his knee and had what was supposed to be an easy surgery. Turned out not to be so easy and after being out for three days, he received last rites from a priest. This should have been a life-changing event for him, but it wasn’t. He went on to receive his masters degree in ancient history from Seton Hall University, studied literature at Oxford University and graduated into one of the worst job markets in history.
