Meet Jerimic, a 33-year-old husband, father, and proud believer, born and raised on the south side of Lansing. He knows what it means to “get it out the mud.” Raised by a single mother who possessed a debilitating disease and estranged from his father who spent 13 years in prison, Jerimic navigated his way through high school, and ultimately, to where he is today.

Jerimic resides in Delta Township with his Christina his beautiful wife of 8 years, his 9-year-old son Malachi, his 7-year-old son Levi, his 4-year-old daughter Eliana and his 22-month-old son Isaiah.

Jerimic made the conscious decision of dedicating his life to the service of others. In 2005, Jerimic received the John the Baptist award from Our Savior Lutheran Church and School. and graduated from J.W. Sexton High School in 2009.

Following high school, Jerimic submersed himself in the experiential marketing realm, which he continues to practice today. He has represented numerous brands and campaigns over the past decade. In addition, criminal justice became a focus focus for Jerimic.

Jerimic has experience working in the security sector for General Motors, Delta Dental, Meijer Distribution Center, and Waverly Middle School. In 2019, Jerimic began his career with the Lansing School District. His first role with the district was as a State of Michigan PA 330 Certified Public Safety Officer. Today, Jerimic has assumed the role of Community Engagement Specialist, primarily working with the Lansing Learning Hub (Lansing School District’s alternative high school). He works with external persons, and organizations, to facilitate student success in high school and beyond.

Jerimic is pursuing post-secondary Social Science studies, but firmly believes self-education and lived experiences are just as important as formal studies. Jerimic’s public policy knowledge, advocacy, and experience supports his life mission.

During Jerimic’s 2013 run for Lansing City Council at-large, the City of Lansing adopted his campaign slogan, “I AM LANSING,” and founded a mascot – a lynx named CUFF, which stood for “Communities United with Food and Fitness.” Also, the VCI (Violent Crime Initiative), was birthed from Jerimic’s 2013 Lansing City Council campaign run. Jerimic is the Lansing Unified Esports (Lansing School District Esports Team) Head Coach.
