Description

Jeremy did a research project on West Point when he was in seventh grade. From that moment on, his goal was to attend West Point for college. Despite having no military background in his family, he worked hard, and when the time came to apply, he received early admission to the school of his dreams.

The determination and follow-through would carry over into his entrepreneurial efforts later on in life. After serving, he took a traditional corporate job and quickly found himself bored, but that didn’t deter him. “I told my boss that I wanted to train Brazilian Jui-Jitsu from 10 am to 2 pm every day,” Gocke said, and he did just that.

Eventually, he left his corporate job to start a business with some of his friends from West Point. While the technology was innovative, the timing was not. The dot com bubble burst, and the business was shut down. This experience, that left him with $87 to his name, would ultimately be the spark for Jeremy’s string of successes over the years.
