— Jeremy to Caitlin
A handsome Brit with more abs than you can count with just your fingers, Jeremy is also described as charming and witty. He is an intelligent scientist working for Hotchkiss Technologies, all while hiding a shocking secret.
Born and raised in the United Kingdom, Jeremy moved to America at an unknown time in his life. He was hired at Hotchkiss Technologies due to his background in science. After moving to Beacon Heights, Jeremy met a recently single Caitlin Park-Lewis, and the pair dated for a while. However, Nolan Hotchkiss began blackmailing Caitlin to remain his "perfect" girlfriend. This forced Jeremy and Caitlin to hide their relationship and remain discreet from the outside world.
In Hook, Line and Booker, after fearing that Caitlin discovered his work on his laptop, Jeremy abruptly leaves her house. He destroys his laptop and throws it into the river, which Caitlin witnesses. When she goes to his car, he appears behind her and stoically tells her that she shouldn't have followed him. He then demands she get in the car.
In Lie Together, Die Together, he becomes the prime suspect as Nolan's Killer after he tells Caitlin he's leaving and wants her to come with him. Taylor Hotchkiss discovers he was stalking Nolan for a while and becomes more convinced of his guilt. After arriving at a dock to meet Caitlin, the group attempted to get him to confess but as he leaves, Taylor shoots him. He is unconscious but alive.
Jeremy is described as charming and charismatic with piercing intellect. He is employed at Hotchkiss Technologies due to his vast knowledge of science. He is caring and loving toward Caitlin, helping her study and urging her to call things off with Nolan for her benefit.

Jeremy: Maybe this sudden ultra-fitness focus you have isn't about track. Maybe it's about the 800-pound elephant in the room.
Caitlin: Gorilla. You know, it's either like the elephant in the room or the 800-pound gorilla.
Jeremy (to Caitlin): It's okay if you're relieved that he's dead. You can admit that to me - no one else has to know.
