According to Texas Tech University, Jeremy’s parents knew early on that he was different. He learned Korean and English by the age of 2. His mother, Harrey Shuler, home schooled Jeremy and said he completed all of his high school courses when he was 11. She has a doctorate in aerospace engineering while his father, Andy Shuler, works for Lockheed Martin as an engineer.


Jeremy scored in the 99.6 percentile on the SAT and wanted to attend college but needed a diploma or GED first, according to the university. He enrolled at Texas Tech Independent School District, earning his diploma in two years.

Jeremy applied in the fall of 2015 to Cornell University, where his father earned an engineering degree. Jeremy will major in engineering.
