Your talk today at Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre was truly inspirational. I admire your ability to speak with such humour and passion. Your strength and ethical character shined through and I was really touched by your presentation. You were a good reminder to me to keep the “faith;” sometimes I feel like I am losing my intensity the older I get, compared to when I was a teenager. So thank you!

I learned that bullying can hurt in lots of different ways and that you shouldn’t be a bystander.

I think Jer’s Vision is a great way to make people stop and think about how they behave with other people.

Hey. Jeremy recently visited my school and I was insanely inspired by all the things he had said. He’s such an inspiration for both young adults and young children alike. I loved his presentation and though he was funny as all hell! I just wanted to suggest recording Jer’s speeches at schools as they are normally funny. I was hoping to show someone what I had the chance to watch and couldn’t find any videos of the sort. I was a little disappointed. I’m sure I’m not the only one looking to show someone and spread the word! Thanks. Oh and by the way… *blow* SPARKLES!

I don’t think it’s fair for people to be teased for who they are.

I just wanted to say thank you again for coming to CASS today to educate us more on issues with bullying and just homosexuality in general. I’m sure it made a difference. I sincerely think you made a difference today as I’m sure you do with every presentation you do.

Your presenation was exactly what we needed though. The way you were able to reach the students through real-life stories and humour broke the awkward silence and tears, providing much needed relief to students and staff. We needed the distraction. A perfect time to send a clear message to students that is life is too short to be hateful. We all need to support, love eachother and embrace our differences.
