REFLECTING ON WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
"I just wanted to thank you so much for coming to Clayton Valley High School the other day. I was about to take my own life but I realized I shouldn't and you showed me why. You have made such a big impact on my life and I am so grateful for that. You changed my life so much and I'm glad you came to my school cuz if it wasn't for you, I wouldn't be here today. Thank you so much."
STUDENT / CLAYTON VALLEY CHARTER HIGH SCHOOL
"In 17 years of teaching I’ve sat through dozens of presentations where someone comes in and plays with a yo yo and says don’t do drugs - blah, blah, blah. Jeremy controlled the room for an hour and a half while he connected with each kid in the room, those who are on the wrong path, those who might be headed on the wrong path, and those who appear to be on the right path. Best speaker I’ve seen in all my years of teaching.”
MR. ROBERSON / SONORA HIGH SCHOOL / TEACHER
"The HOPE DEALER is absolutely the best presenter our school has ever had. He is part story teller, part comedian, part musician, and part motivational speaker. Weaving all this talents together into each presentation, he reaches the most extreme at risk student to the most driven and goal oriented student. The most distractible students are highly attentive, participanting, laughing and relating with Jeremy. His humor and musicality provide the backdrop for his message of hope, courage, and compassion. Jeremy has been so impacting with our students that we've had him back twice per year for the past 15 years. Our staff and students alike, consistently proclaim that the HOPE DEALER gives the best presentations of the year!

"I cannot thank you enough for such a dynamic impactful evening earlier this month. So many of our employees have personally reached out to me and let me know how the event touched then both personally and professionally. Making a difference is what it's all about! The President of our global sales division was present and he tought it was the best team building program in his 30+ years at Allergan. THANK YOU for your dedication in making a difference.
ROB HUBERT / ALLERGAN / U.S.AREA SALES DIRECTOR
"You came and spoke to us at DCA and I really want to thank you for that. It was so amazing to open my eyes to different perspectives and truly think about my goals, dreams, and to know that I truly am capable of achieving them. I went from being a meth addict with no hope, no future, no goals, no resources or foundation, to soon to be graduating high school a year early, I just got a job, and I'm starting classes at community college. Thank you for everything!!"
STUDENT / DISCOVERY CHALLENGE ACADEMY
"I just wanted to say thanks, this morning's speech was absolutely incredible. 20 years in the Navy and I have never seen a speech/presentation with so much feeling and meaning behind it. I hope a lot of what you said hits home to the younger sailors too. Again, thank you for doing what you do! Aloha."
JT GRAY / UNITED STATES NAVY / HAWAII
"Your mission to spread hope has honestly reached me at a time when I was close to just giving up. Since I was nine years old, I've been through one thing after another, shifted from one family members home to another. I've always had hope and I've always been that girl with a great attitude. This past year I've lost that hope and that mentality that I can get through it. You helped me see hope again, so thank you!"
STUDENT / EAST DAVIDSON HIGH SCHOOL
"You visited my school today and i just wanted to say your speech was the only speech I've heard that I've taken in, and has affected me. I now look at things differently and have a more positive outlook on life. Life has been hard for me lately, and I've felt hopeless. Your words helped me so much, I almost cried. I just want to say thank you. Thank you for giving your time to us today, and talking to us. I'm sure you affected many more beside me. Thank you!"
