Jeremy McGhee: Your New Hero

by Brian Smith

Born and raised in San Diego, CA, Jeremy is a waterman. He grew up surfing and generally getting on the water whenever possible. While running errands on his motorcycle (almost exactly 14 years ago), Jeremy nearly lost his life when a motorist turned directly into his path. The collision left him helpless and bleeding in the street as his life slipped away.
