Who I Am

From farmer to software engineer

Jeremy Fischer

I’m from a small farming community where I spent my summers working on our family fruit orchard. There's a joke that goes like this, “Do you know how to make a small fortune farming? Start out with a large fortune!” That’s because being a farmer is hard work and depending on the year it doesn’t always pay off. On a farm you are always trying to find the most efficient use of resources and figuring out how to fix broken equipment. I believe this is where my ingenuity and strong work ethic came from.

I spent my winters at the ski resort 30 minutes from my home working as a ski and snowboard instructor. People from across the globe come to Mt. Hood to work or to recreate, so I interacted with people having all different personalities, temperaments and cultural backgrounds.

I’ve always been an active individual and throughout my younger years I was a wrestler and a football player. It was there that I learned the value of team. My experience was further enhanced as the team captain where I acquired an understanding of the importance of strong leadership and personal sacrifice for the sake of the greater good.

I stumbled upon technology when I took a StRUT (Student use of Recycled Technology) class in high school. This class was more hardware based than software and mainly consisted of tinkering with Arduinos and dismantling broken computers. I became enlightened to what technology can do for people. I began researching career paths that involve technology. After exploring all options, I knew that I belonged in the Computer Science field. The fact that in Computer Science I can design, create, be the mastermind behind a solution that impacts people’s lives and really see it come to life excites me!

I’m in my final year now at Oregon State University and have been loving every bit of it. I have taken advantage of every opportunity I have encountered here at OSU and have been fortunate enough to be a part of the Engineering Leadership Academy and Oregon State’s ACM Student Chapter.
