Jeremy was born on September 25th, 1976 in Caldwell, Idaho to Ken and Penny (LaCrone) Eggers. He was raised on the family dairy and farm in New Plymouth and graduated in 1994 from New Plymouth High School where he played football and was active in the FFA program. On June 12, 1998, Jeremy married his high school sweetheart, Monica Knee from Fruitland, Idaho. They were blessed with four amazing children.
