Jeremy Martin, a production assistant at KNTV NBC Bay Area who was just starting his television journalism career, died suddenly last Friday night, Dec. 15. He was 26.
Jeremy joined the station in 2022 and was a much-loved member of the NBC Bay Area family, working on the production team in our newsroom. Always hard-working, he loved his work, and he loved being a part of NBC Bay Area. All his colleagues, who became his friends, loved him.
Jeremy received his associate in arts degree from Ohlone College in Fremont in 2020. In 2023, he graduated from San Jose State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in journalism.
While attending Ohlone, he served on The Monitor, the college’s weekly newspaper, as a reporter and editor. A talented writer, he loved to write about his passion: video games.
