You may know PSAR Affiliate member Jeremy Coombs who serves on the PSAR Charity Committee. He is chairing PSAR’s second annual Zombie 5K Run-Walk on Saturday, Oct. 15, at Rohr Park, 4548 Sweetwater Road, Bonita. Participants are encouraged to wear costumes. For event information, visit www.psar.org/zombie.
 
But did you know that Jeremy has a twin brother? “I’m two minutes older than my younger brother Joel,” said Jeremy. “We’re very competitive, but he’s my best friend."
 
Jeremy also is very close with his younger sister Jamie Del Fierro. Jeremy’s brother in law, Eric Del Fierro, is head coach of a mixed martial arts (MMA) team affiliated with Alliance Training Center, a MMA training facility in Chula Vista. The team features several fighters who compete in United Fighting Championship (UFC) competitions, as well as with Bellator (a MMA promotion company) and other minor organizations. A member of the fight team is Dominick Cruz, UFC bantamweight champion.
 
Jeremy, with over 14 years of sales experience, works as a title rep with Fidelity National Title. He graduated from San Diego State University in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology, but his career has taken a variety of twists and turns.
 
In 2005, Jeremy joined as associate publisher of Happy Hour Magazine, a publication that grew to a circulation of 600 locations in San Diego County and 200 locations in Orange County. “We closed our doors in 2011 after my business partner ran off with all the money,” said Jeremy. “It’s a painful story to remember.”
 
Jeremy then worked for a marketing company that served real estate agents, and later established his own company called “Way to Go Productions” that specialized in social media training and websites for real estate agents. It closed in 2015 when he decided to join Fidelity National Title. 
 
“I’ve worked hard in my career but I try not to take life or myself too seriously,” Jeremy said. “I love giving back and helping people achieve their goals.”
 
Jeremy’s past also has included his own recovery from alcoholism. Recently, Jeremy and his sister Jamie were the brains behind the establishment of a new nonprofit called Silver Siblings that provides online resources to overcome substance addictions.
 
Jeremy is an admirer of Sean Stephenson, an American therapist, self-help author, and motivational speaker. Because he was born with osteogenesis imperfecta, Stephenson stands three feet tall, has fragile bones and uses a wheelchair. “No matter your past and current challenges, we all are endowed with the ability to end self-sabotage and rid ourselves of insecurity,” Jeremy says.
 
Jeremy also admires PSAR. “Our members make all the difference. We have a lot of really good people who care about each other.”
 
Jeremy was instrumental in designating AJ’s Kids as a recipient of proceeds from the Zombie 5k Run-Walk. AJ’s Kids is a nonprofit begun by A.J. Machado, a radio personality heard on KEGY-FM Energy 103.7. Every holiday season, Machado is hoisted by a crane and lives high off the ground for a number of days until a certain number of unwrapped toys and cash are collected for patients of Rady Children’s Hospital. “I’ve known AJ for about 10 years and I’m proud that the Zombie Walk is supporting his worthwhile effort,” Jeremy said.
 
Registration for the Zombie 5k on Oct. 15 begins at 7 a.m. and the run-walk begins at 9 a.m. Cost is $20 for adults over age 18 and $10 for youth ages 6 to 17. Participants will receive a t-shirt with logos. Also benefiting from proceeds from the Zombie 5k is South Bay Community Services, a provider of a transitional housing program that assists former foster youths who are finishing high school or completing job training.
