UMPI Class of 2004 Bachelors in Business Administration
Update by Jeremy Williams, alumnus
“Since graduating from UMPI in 2004, I’ve been blessed to have many different experiences that have challenged me in my professional career and personal endeavors.
I’ve worked within the Financial Services Industry since 2005, beginning with CitiBank within Portfolio Accounting Implementations and now with JPMorgan Chase, implementing Robotics Process Automation across our Consumer and Business Banking operations. Within the Robotics space, we’ve automated just over 1MM hours worth of work with ~950 virtual workers.
In 2005 I married fellow UMPI Alum Andrea Lunn and in 2013 had a daughter, Stevi Mae.
Two of my biggest accomplishments since graduation are completing my MBA in 2015 from Ashland University, and partnering with Children’s Hopechest in 2017.
Since 2012, I’ve traveled every year (With the exception of one) to Uganda, East Africa where I’ve worked in Kakira sub-county. Here is where I found my heart to be. Becoming friends with a local pastor, it was quickly determined that there was a need for sustainable poverty alleviation for Kakira’s most vulnerable and orphaned children. This is where I began my partnership with Children’s Hopechest (hopechest.org) – with this partnership we have a community here in Ohio that is sponsoring 210 children, we have purchased land, created infrastructure that provides training, clean water, food, basic medical care, and covers school tuition for the children. In 2020, we will start 2 community projects where guardians/parents and project children will being learning skills that will provide them with a self-sustainable income. The ultimate goal of the CarePoint is all western monies will go away by 2027 and the community will be completely self-sustaining.”
