Jeremy Schwartz, jschwartz@wearelocalworks.org
Community Programs Manager

Jeremy is a native of the Boston area, has lived in Colorado for a little over 10 years, and has been active in the Wheat Ridge community since moving here in 2014. In addition to volunteering for Localworks, he’s a graduate of the inaugural Wheaties Academy, and has also served as a mentor for the program during the last few years.


Jeremy’s background is in theatrical design, stage production and event management. He’s been fortunate in his career to have ties to some of the largest arts organizations in the area including the Denver Center Theatre Company, the Newman Center for the Performing Arts at DU, Swallow Hill Music Association, and many more. He recently started a new position as Events Coordinator for Central City Opera, and he looks forward to bringing his expertise to the community and cultural events throughout Wheat Ridge.

In his free time, Jeremy enjoys seeing live music, spending time with friends, playing with his dog, traveling and outdoor adventures.
