Recently, Assemblyman Brian Curran and Assemblywoman Missy Miller honored Jeremy Feder of Oceanside as part of Curran’s second annual Youth Leadership Event.
“I am very proud to honor Jeremy,” said Curran. “He is a very well-rounded and talented individual. His desire to help veterans is truly inspiring. The impact Jeremy’s charity baseball tournament has had is remarkable and his work with various other community groups is as impressive as his athletic and musical talents. We look forward to seeing what you do in what is certain to be a bright future.”
Jeremy Feder is an honor student, athlete and musician in ninth grade at Oceanside High School. Two years ago, he combined his desire to help veterans with his passion for baseball and created a charity baseball tournament. The annual community event has raised nearly $11,500 for America’s VetDogs. Plans are now underway for the third annual Jeremy Feder All-Star Charity Baseball Tournament.
“I am so proud of Jeremy Feder,” said Miller. “He is an outstanding young man who has a vision of helping others and remains driven and focused on seeing it through. Jeremy sets a wonderful example for other young people! I can’t wait for the next All-Star Charity Baseball Tournament!”
Jeremy also volunteers for numerous other projects through the Kiwanis and his synagogue, Temple Avodah. Some of these projects include toy, clothing, and food drives and working with animal rescue groups. He has also coached special needs children in Long Beach and assisted coaching younger children in Oceanside Little League.
For all of Jeremy’s charitable work with veterans, he received the Lt. Ronald Winchester Award upon graduating from Oceanside Middle School. He is also a member of the Patriot Club at Oceanside High School and was installed as a member of the National Junior Honor Society at Oceanside Middle School last year. He is currently enrolled in numerous honors classes as a high school freshman and is carrying 4.0 GPA.
As well as being an outstanding student, Jeremy is also a competitive baseball player who was chosen from a pool of hundreds to represent the USA Baseball NTIS Team North Atlantic in Cary, North Carolina as one of three catchers selected for this elite team. He is also a musician and has been a member of the All-County Vocal Ensemble and has performed at Tilles Center with this group for the past three years. In addition, he plays trumpet and euphonium and will be installed this April as a member of the Tri-M National Music Honor Roll.
Jeremy plans to study business and marketing when he attends college and hopes to be an entrepreneur one day.
