Jeremy was born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas. His grandma directed a youth program at a local community theatre in Chorpus Christi. In school he was always in choir, one year he did a choir concert at the community theatre and it lead to acting roles. It wasn't until he did a production of The Fantasticks that he became serious about acting. He received a BFA from Ithaca College in 2007 and moved to NYC.
Shortly after moving to NYC he booked the National Tour for Whistle Down The Wind. However, he wanted to stay in NYC so he turned it down. He did a few readings and regional productions. In 2009, he booked his first Broadway show, Rock of Ages. He was a swing understudying several roles, including the lead. In December of 2009, he decided to leave Rock of Ages to play Tony in West Side Story on Wednesday evenings and Sunday matinees.
Upon leaving West Side Story, Jeremy traveled to Sarasota, Florida to play Clyde Barrow, opposite Laura Osnes, in Bonnie & Clyde. After a successful month run, he then headed to Atlanta, Georgia to film his first feature film, Joyful Noise. Todd Graff, who wrote and directed the film, happened to be at Jeremy's very first performance at Rock of Ages and cast him in the movie. His character is Randy Garrity, the rebellious grandson of G.G. Sparrow (played by Dolly Parton).
He returned to NY after being away for a few months, he was a part of some compilation concerts and readings. In the Fall of 2011, Jeremy got to fulfill a childhood dream when he was cast as Jack Kelly in Disney's world premiere production of Newsies. While Jeremy was enjoying playing Jack Kelly at night, during the day he was rehearsing for Bonnie & Clyde which would come to Broadway shortly after Newsies finished its regional run at Paper Mill Playhouse.
In November of 2011, Jeremy got to originate his first leading role on Broadway in Bonnie & Clyde; once again he got to play Clyde Barrow. Sadly, the production would close after only 69 performances.
Shortly after Bonnie & Clyde's closing, Jeremy announced he would be returning to Newsies to play Jack Kelly at the Nederlander theatre on Broadway. Just four months into the run, Jeremy would be pulling double duty once again -- filming season 2 of NBC's hit TV show, Smash while still playing Jack Kelly in Newsies.
Jeremy left Newsies to film Smash full-time. His final performance was September 4, 2012.
Jeremy is married to fellow Broadway actress Ashley Spencer.
