Early Life[edit | edit source]
Dooley was born in Burlington, Massachusetts, on June 4, 1991. He worked at many different jobs when he was an early teenager, beginning work at age 14. These jobs included Karate Instructor at Steven Nugent's Karate Institute, Gymnastics Instructor for the Burlington Rec Center, Cashier at Brighams Ice Cream in the Burlington Mall, Pottery Barn in the Burlington Mall, On the Border in Woburn Macaroni Grill in Burlington Christian Party Rental in New Hampshire and finally as a Proofreader for a medical company near Boston. He attended high school at Burlington and studied Media Arts and Animation at New England Institute of Art.
Jeremy was a self-proclaimed 'superfan' of Achievement Hunter during his college years, and was a pillar of the Achievement Hunter community, being very active and popular amongst them. Jeremy created the fan series Epic Rap Battles of Rooster Teeth, uploaded to the YouTube channel Achievements4Idiots, along with Imaginary Achievements (his primary Community Hunter series). He often starred in the series MegaCraft, created by Matt Bragg, one of the most popular series of Community Hunter.
Career at Rooster Teeth[edit | edit source]
On July 6, 2014, during RTX 2014, Jeremy and fellow community figure Matt Bragg were told they were going to be hired and asked by Caleb to participate in an on-stage bit. They got in line and asked if they could have a job, obviously making fun of the rest of audience who actually ask that every year, only to get their questions shut down. Then, to their disingenous surprise, Geoff legitimately said "yes" and pulled them on stage, hiring them on the spot. They were told the gag would involve them getting hit with eggs and water balloons and to "bring clothes they don't mind getting wet".
Jeremy worked as a secondary content creator, editor, and recurring host, along with Matt. Six months after Ray Narvaez, Jr's departure in early 2015, Jeremy was officially promoted into the main room as a primary content creator (on October 16, 2015), filling the spot left by Ray. As part of his promotion to main member, Jeremy changed his Xbox Live gamertag from Jerem6401 to JDoolz, following a suggestion to do so by Gavin Free; though his PlayStation Network ID is still his original Jerem6401 tag.
Jeremy has said sometime in the future, he plans to start a family, but will only do so back in New England, meaning he would have to resign as a main host for Achievement Hunter.
Personal Life[edit | edit source]
Jeremy has been in a relationship with Katherine "Kat" Teebagy since he was 14; they married on June 4, 2016, Jeremy's 25th birthday. With Kat, he has three cats named Scooter, Booker, and Zipper.
Jeremy is 5'4" as stated at the very end of Let's Play Minecraft - Episode 142 - Legends Of The Hidden Tower .
He is roughly a quarter Irish (from his father's side), a quarter Italian, and half-Syrian (mother's side).
