PENDLETON — Jeremiah Dew didn’t know anything about Wildred J. Walker Sr. when he walked into the Greenville resident’s home in 2008.

It was happenstance. Dew was asked to play the role of camera man for a Leadership Greenville class project and simply showed up to do the job. He had no idea a seed would be planted that would change his life.

In Walker’s hour-long interview he told many stories, one of which was about the racism he encountered at the highway department in Greenville in the 1940s.

Watch the video below:

Jeremiah Dew, or JDew as Greenville Drive and Clemson fans know him, has never seen the lights on Fluor Field from any other vantage point than the infield.

And he hates picking up the debris aftermath from the Friday night fireworks shows.

“Firework clean-up is the worst,” he says. “I won’t miss that.”

After 10 years on the mic for the Drive’s home games, which made him one of Greenville’s most recognized faces, and cleaning up after all of the on-field shenanigans, JDew officially resigned at the end of the 2016 season to spend more time with his growing family.

In the Upstate he is fondly known as JDew. Jeremiah brings a seasoned outlook on the Greenville business community to LOCALLY EPIC. From being the Director of Fun and in-game personality for the Greenville Drive to the on court HYPE man for Clemson basketball, JDew has entertained hundreds of thousands of fans since 2007. He has also been the emcee to dozens of local charity events and fundraisers. His unique ability to connect with people is the heart and soul of who he is.

GREENVILLE - Nine pounds, nine ounces of joy. How little she knew of what her early arrival meant to daddy.

The sixth day of April will forever swing the pendulum of glee and grief, of life and death, for the man known as the 'GameMaster of Ceremonies' throughout upstate South Carolina.

Jeremiah Dew, or JDew to his legion of fans, always keeps his Facebook profile amiable and upbeat. That's who he is.

But when he and his wife Sydney welcomed their first child, 12 days before her due date, his mind was boggled by her birthday far more than the typical first-time father.

The highest moment of Jeremiah Dew's life surfaced precisely two decades after his lowest. Johnnie Leigh Dew was born exactly 20 years after John Lee Dew, Jeremiah's father, shot and killed himself in his Missouri home.
