Senator McPike would love to hear from you!
First elected to the 29th District of the Virginia Senate in 2015, Senator Jeremy McPike was re-elected in 2019.
Jeremy 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 20 years, Jeremy has served as a volunteer firefighter and EMT with the Dale City Volunteer Fire Department (DCVFD), where he is an Assistant Chief 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. He also led the design and construction of the innovative and environmentally conscious DCVFD Station 10, which received Washington Business Journal’s 2010 Green Business Design Award and was the first volunteer fire station in the nation to earn the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Gold rating.
Jeremy has worked for the City of Alexandria for the past 15 years, currently serving as the Director of General Services. In this role, he works to make sure public building projects come in on time and on budget. He has also established gleaning programs and SNAP/EBT at local Farmers’ Markets so healthy foods can reach the most vulnerable, has built new public-private partnerships for the city, and, as a LEED Accredited Professional, has set up sustainable green building policies for Alexandria.
He is also a graduate of the Sorensen Institute’s Political Leaders Program, and the former Northern Virginia Chair for OneVirginia2021, a bipartisan organization advocating for an amendment to the Virginia Constitution that would bring fair and impartial redistricting to the Commonwealth.
Jeremy and his wife Sharon live in Dale City with their three daughters.
Last month, Senator McPike joined Governor Northam, Delegate Jeff Bourne, Senator Jennifer McLellan, Princess Blanding, and Oscar Urbina to watch the Governor ceremonially sign the Marcus Alert bill. HB 5043 and SB 5038 establish a statewide mental health awareness response and community understanding services (Marcus) alert system. The text of the bill can be read at https://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?202+sum+SB5038
My office is now accepting applications for the 2020 class of the Greater Prince William Young Leaders Program.
