Sometimes on TGR we like updating you on Jews who “were.” Former great Jewish athletes who have kind have fallen out of the public eye. We have interviewed the former “Jewish Jordan” Tamir Goodman, posted a story on last year’s NCAA seniors, and now we bring you Jeremy Bloom. No, not the same Jeremy Bloom who runs KosherHam.com. The Jeremy Bloom who was a professional skiier and drafted into the NFL.
Then he was gone.
So what has he been up to? Well, he popped up again in 2010 Winter Olympics where he worked for NBC as an analysist. He has also become a College Football analysist for ESPN and Versus. But most of his time has been spent working on his foundation called Wish of a Lifetime. And “In February 2010, Bloom Co Founded the internet company Integrate.com. On December 14, 2010 The Foundry Group invested $4.25 million into the start up. The companies headquarters are located in Denver, Colorado.”
So, while Bloom’s football and skiing careers might be over he is definitely busy. For a while he was the most exciting Jewish athlete. The 2 sport star sparkled with his kick returns and long receptions and also worked the links as well. Now he is the star helping others fulfill their dreams.

And Let Us Say…Amen.
