Adopted by a single mom from an orphanage in Kolkata, India, Jeremy made history as the first Asian elected to state office from upstate New York. He was raised in the City of Rochester, where he graduated from public schools. He is the first RCSD graduate in the state senate in decades. Jeremy went on to earn his B.A. with honors from Hobart & William Smith Colleges and his J.D. from Albany Law School. He is married to Dr. Diane Lu, a urologic surgeon with the University of Rochester Medical Center. Together they reside in Rochester. Jeremy is active in our community as a member of his neighborhood association and the Monroe County Democratic Committee. He also sits on the Board of Trustees for Hobart & William Smith Colleges, the Vestry of Christ Church Rochester, and serves as a Vice Chair of the Executive Board for the Seneca Waterways Council, BSA, as a proud Eagle Scout.
