Jeremy McPike has lived in Prince William County, Va., for the past 40 years. Paying for school expenses by working as a construction laborer and eventually as a construction superintendent, Jeremy attended George Mason University for his Bachelor's and Master's of Public Administration degrees, where he was selected for the Northern Virginia Public Service Fellows Program.
For the last 16 years, Jeremy has served as a volunteer firefighter and EMT with the Dale City Volunteer Fire Department (DCVFD), where he is a Captain and has been honored with Life Membership. He helped found and serves as president of the DCVFD Foundation, well known in the community for its support of public safety initiatives and Santa visits to kids fighting cancer.

In this role, he works to make sure public building projects come in on time and on budget.

Civil Rights Legend and People For the American Way Board Member Dolores Huerta to Campaign in Virginia, Endorses State Senate Candidate Jeremy McPikeOctober 28, 2015Press Release
Today, civil rights legend and People For the American Way board member Dolores Huerta endorsed Jeremy McPike, Virginia State Senate candidate in State Senate District 29. Huerta stated:
WOODBRIDGE — Jeremy McPike’s mother nearly gave birth to him on Interstate 95.
“I was a breech birth, and they said I had one foot out on the way to the hospital,” the Democratic candidate in Northern Virginia’s 29th Senate District said over coffee last week in Woodbridge. “So you could say I’ve been on the transportation issue from Day 1.”
It’s a good thing — McPike can’t afford to stop running, considering that his race is critical to Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s legislative agenda entering the last two years of his term.
The parents of Alison Parker, the Roanoke television reporter killed in an on-air shooting in August, will be in Woodbridge Sunday to campaign for Jeremy McPike, the Democratic candidate for the hotly contested 29th District state Senate race.
In the wake of the very public shooting that killed Parker and her co-worker Adam Ward, Parker’s father has become an outspoken advocate of gun control leading up to the Nov. 3 election.
McPike said he welcomes the Parkers’ support and says their positions on gun control “deserve to be heard.”
