Hi, I’m Jeremy MacDonald.

I’m originally from Cornwall, PEI.  I started curling at the Cornwall Curling Club at the age of 8 years old when my parents were founding members of the club.  I curled competitively in juniors reaching the Provincial final in my last year of eligibility.  I continued curling out of Cornwall until the age of 25 when I moved to Ontario for work.  After moving to Ontario I curled out of the Winchester Curling Club until my current club the North Grenville Curling Club opened in 2005.  I have won several club championships and in 2008 I won the Royal Victoria Jubilee, which is the Canadian Branch of the RCCC’s men’s championship.

A consummate volunteer, I have served on different curling club executives, help with ice making as a Level 2 Ice technician, and have helped with club junior programs.  I am currently the President of the Kemptville Wildcats Little League organization and have served on the executive for over 5 years.  I am also a Past President of the Canadian Branch of the Royal Caledonia Curling Club serving as President for 4 years.

I've been married to my wife Tracey for 18 years.  I taught her to curl 22 years ago and she now curls and volunteers around the club as much as I do.  We have an 18 year old son Brandon that started curling when he was 7 and loves the sport as much as we do.

Professionally, I have worked as a Network Administrator at the Royal Canadian Mint since 2014.  I have been working in the IT industry since moving to Ottawa in 1998.  In my spare time when I have some, I enjoy golfing, coaching and umpiring baseball, playing with electronics, watching football (American NFL football!!!), and obviously CURLING.

I look forward to seeing some tourists from the Scottish 2013 Strathcona Cup tour when we come to Scotland.  I had the pleasure of welcoming the tourists when they landed in Ottawa and hosted them at our club during their first week in Canada.  I also attended the closing banquet and enjoyed getting to know that great group of tourists.
