He remained inactive for almost a year while attending Business School at Simon Fraser University (SFU) where he obtained his BBA.
“The Skylab platform is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. As a person with an entrepreneurship background who has worked with multiple different industries, this platform is so powerful that it is able to cater specifically to almost any industry with just a little customization. As apps and mobile solutions become increasingly more important, Skylab Apps has positioned itself for success for many years to come.”
It was at Simon Fraser University (SFU) that Jeremy began his cheerleading career. He would excel in this sport with his gymnastics background and after years of earning national level accolades, he would become a 5-time world champion with Team Canada at both an athlete and coaching level. With multiple national and world titles amongst his achievements, Jeremy is known as one of the most decorated Canadians in Cheerleading history. By the way, Skylab has developed a Cheerleading app.
It was at this time that Jeremy’s acting became internationally recognized for playing the role of Darwin on the Warner Bros hit TV show, Hellcats. He has been featured in American Cheerleader magazine, multiple print, and online articles and most notably on the cover of Twist Magazine.
Through his business successes, Jeremy has been invited to speak internationally in many different countries including Australia, Mexico, Norway, Hong Kong, England and across Canada and the United States.
