Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Defensoría de Veteranos y optimizar el sistema de cuidados de la salud de Asuntos de los Veteranos (Veteran Affairs, VA) para nuestros Veteranos. Soy un Veterano de tercera generación y estoy cansado de ver que traten a nuestros Veteranos como ciudadanos de segunda clase en comparación con los políticos y los no ciudadanos.
  • La 2.º Enmienda y garantizar que nuestros derechos y libertades para portar armas no se coarten... más de lo que ya se coartan actualmente.
  • Seguridad Fronteriza, garantizar nuestra seguridad fronteriza a través de iniciativas eficaces y eficientes.

Actividades comunitarias

Corporal (E-4), United States Marine Corps (2005–2009)


Jeremy grew up in California, the middle child of three, to a stay-at-home mother and a Vietnam veteran father. Jeremy excelled in both football and track and field, lettering seven times total. He once earned Athlete of the Year, Most Valuable Player and eventually was inducted into his high school’s football Hall of Fame. He continued his education at a local community college, where he earned an associate degree in criminal justice and again excelled in two sports and was later inducted into the college’s Hall of Fame.


Always dreaming bigger dreams, Jeremy pursued a four-year degree and a D-1 athletic career at Arizona State University, where he made football his sole athletic focus. There, he won individual honors and competed for a national championship in the 1997 Rose Bowl. Unfortunately, the SunDevils came up short to the Ohio State Buckeyes and ended the season ranked #4 in the country. As disappointing as the loss was for him, it still stands as the apex of ASU football, and his performance helped him get the attention of the Pittsburgh Steelers, which drafted him a year later in the second round of the National Football League draft.


Jeremy played four seasons in the NFL with four teams, the Steelers, the Seattle Seahawks, the St. Louis Rams and the Oakland Raiders. But after the 9-11 terrorist attacks, he felt a calling to defend his country and he joined the Marines. He served four years in the Marine Corps, including a nine-month tour in Iraq. His military career was cut short with injury.


Returning to California, Jeremy found another calling in helping others. He began devoting his time to local charities serving veterans, as well as speaking at more than 150 schools, inspiring students. To raise awareness nationally of the epidemic of veteran suicide, he embarked on a 3,468-mile cross country bicycle ride that started in California and ended at the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C.


Jeremy developed a passion for teaching and welding and combined the two by teaching welding at his former community college. He continues to teach and is pursing a Doctorate in Education from Liberty University. He and his wife, Janelle, have two sons, Tristen and Gavin. He is a devout Christian.

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

Jeremy is focusing on strong leadership, putting America first, and fighting against aggressive, socialist policies that have hurt California and the country as a whole.


“President Trump is under fire on a daily basis. The President alone can’t change Washington; he needs back up. Send in the Marine, Staat. I promise to always put American citizens first, prioritize national security and protect our freedom, and workers,” said Staat.


"I salute the flag, and I’ll always stand for the national anthem, and I’ll never back down from a challenge,” Jeremy Staat.
