Jeremy Pickerell, 10.14 Volunteer of the MonthMeet Jeremy Pickerell, our October VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH!

*How did you get involved with The Project?

My wife and I both worked with the Co-Chair for the fundraising committee, Dr. Prewitt, and he knew how important this cause was to me so he approached me about joining the team.  I said yes immediately.

*Why Louisville?

I’m from Elizabethtown, my family lives in Southern Indiana, and my wife and I both work in Louisville so I wanted to be able to impact the community around my family and friends.

*Favorite restaurant in Louisville?

Jeff Ruby’s

*What is one interesting fact about you that most people don’t know?

I have Lynch Syndrome which is an inherited condition that increases my chances of having colon and other types of cancers.

*What is your motto you live by?

Work hard, play hard

*What is some advice you were given long ago and still live by?

The best rule in the book, “treat others as you wish to be treated”.

*What is your guilty pleasure? (Yes, we mean the one you are slightly embarrassed to admit.)

I love to eat, and I can make a sandwich out of anything.  I’d probably even put my steak on bread at a nice restaurant if I didn’t think it would embarrass those around me.

*If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go and why?

Key West because my wife and I love the food and atmosphere there.

*If you could trade places with anyone in the world (dead or alive) for a month, who would choose and why?

I would trade places with my wife just to see if she is really right all the time.
