Jeremy Lees, the son of a son of a tow boat captain, was raised in a fishing town on the New Jersey coast. Jeremy joined the family business at a young age and has spent much of his life on the water. Moving to Oregon in 2002, he began exploring the state’s wildlands, going on to conduct stream surveys of juvenile and adult salmonids throughout numerous watersheds in western Oregon.
An avid surfer, rock hound and mushroom hunter, Jeremy greatly values the beauty of Oregon and its wildlife. He lives in Portland with his wife and two young children.
