Jeremy was born and raised in a small town in Northern British Columbia his mom was a nurse at the local hospital(she passed away from cancer in 2012) and his father was a hunter and spent most of his life in the woods living off the land and taught Jeremy everything he now knows about survival in the wild(Passed away from heart failure shortly after his wife passed). Jeremy was an Outfitter and professional Outdoors-man before the virus spread. He made his living off of clients paying him to take them to remote locations to get the biggest "game" they can find. He did most of his work in the Northern Hemisphere his expertise was in tracking wild animals and surviving off the land and that's what the hunter's paid him for. He and his best friend set off into the Pacific Ocean to get to Jeremy's cabin further up the coast from Vancouver Island and got lost in a storm ended up on the coast of Russia many months later. Jeremy saw food and set off without hesitation and got lost he then set out to try and find his friend. He ended up walking so far in land he came across a border and the sign read Chernarus. Now he must use his survival skills to survive the rough environment.
