|Personal History||Third generation Colonial Officer - born into a military family.
Son to Robert and Lisa: from his boyhood on up to his teens Jerimiah was fascinated with speed and technology. While his parents were away on duty he delved into the world of mechanics with his late-grandfather Kono. He was always fascinated to hear his stories of shipbuilding and research. Much of the technology on the new Battlestars was researched and designed by Jerimiah's grandfather.
At 12 yrs. of age Jerimiah exploited his mechanical prowess when he successfully rebuilt and energized a small "surplus" turbine engine at his grandfather's garage. It wasn't long until his mechanical know-how became common knowledge among some of his acquaintances. Almost immediately he was befriended by individuals who dealt ship building and repair. At age 14, however, his involvement at such a young age came to a screeching halt when his father found out about it. Robert Isaacs was no fool though. He wanted his son to stop the illeagal activity but he fostered his son's studies and encouraged them to grow. Robert eventually sent his son to the Colonial Academy to study to be an officer. The thought was that when he got out Jerimiah could work for any shipyard out there.
After 4 years of Academy discipline, study, and exceptionally good grades, Jerimiah submitted his application to the Officer's Training Course. He was later commissioned as Ensign by age 22. Needless to say, his acquired reputation as an officer who thought long and hard before making a decision. While that was considered a good quality it was said that he could not make the tough decisions.
When promoted to the rank of Lieutenant at age 25, Fleet Command transferred Jerimiah to the ARGOS as part of its Tactical Officer. By age 27 he was promoted to Captain and assigned Officer of the Deck.
While "on loan" aboard the battlestar HELIOS, Jerimiah had the rare honor of meeting and escorting the late-great Cdr. Owen Pulsipher through his former vessel and last command. Sadly, he witnessed the "old man's" silent-yet peaceful-death on the C.I.C.'s Command chair. His passing made a bit of an impact on Jerimiah, considering the stories he'd heard from his father and other older warriors regarding this illustrious veteran. He would make command his ultimate goal; and, perhaps one day living up to the legendary status Pulsipher earned. Jerimiah later transferred to the Helios becoming part of its crew.
At the age of 33 Jerimiah was promoted to the rank of Major and continued as the Helios' Officer of the Deck. He served for several years under that position remaining one of the fleet's most eligible bachelors. Although he shared many a romance with a young lady, none really made a difference in his life.
At the age of 37 Jerimiah was given a transfer to Solaria to take over as that ship's Officer of the Deck. The transfer was none to soon because one year after the transfer the attack came wiping out everything he knew. His whole family died in the attack, well everyone except his mother. She is currently on one of the civilian ships in the fleet.
