Jeremy Greer was a teenager who had been "bagged and tagged" by Noah Bennet in the past. He was an evolved human with the ability to heal living things as well as kill them, through physical contact. He was killed by an angry mob of people who did not understand him, or his ability.
Hoping to save the life of Hiro Nakamura, Peter Petrelli and Noah Bennet teleport to Jeremy's home in order to ask for his help. They discover that everything around the house has died and wonder if Jeremy has somehow caused it. They search the house and find Jeremy's parents dead. Jeremy then begins to shoot at Noah and Peter. Peter searches for a way to the upper floor and Jeremy holds Noah at gunpoint, warning him not to come any closer. Noah asks why he needs to stay away and Jeremy explains that when he touches things, they die.
Noah realizes that Jeremy accidentally killed his parents and tries to reassure him by telling him that he can also heal things. Jeremy does not believe that he can and Peter teleports in, startling him. The gun goes off and Peter is shot in the chest. As Noah holds him, he begs Jeremy to heal him. Jeremy insists that he can't but Noah asks him to try. Jeremy concentrates and is able to heal Peter's wound. Later, the police arrive and Noah informs Jeremy that he made it look like his parents died by carbon monoxide poisoning. He apologizes to Jeremy and promises that he will stay and help him learn how to control his ability.
The police imprisons Jeremy despite the fake evidence Noah created to prove his innocence, as Jeremy had previously had a record. They say they will only let him go with his next of kin. They also tell Noah that Jeremy is known to be an animal killer. Noah brings in Tracy Strauss and makes it seem like she is his aunt. Tracy speaks with Jeremy, who is angry about his ability. Tracy tells him about her freezing powers and about how she lost her way, like he has. Jeremy begins to cry but Tracy tells him that it is alright. She later organizes Jeremy's release, much to his surprise. He wonders where he will live and Noah tells him that he will go and live near him. He also says that Tracy will help him learn to control his ability.
Jeremy, Tracy and Noah leave the police station and encounter an angry mob of concerned citizens. They call Jeremy a murderer and a freak and a man rushes forward and grabs Jeremy. The man instantly dies, much to everyone's shock, and Jeremy stares ahead blankly. The police take him back into custody and Deputy Gill forces Jeremy outside. He offers Jeremy the opportunity to try and kill him but Jeremy, not wanting to be a killer, refuses. Gill then ties Jeremy to a truck and has the driver drag him to death. Later, Tracy and Noah find Jeremy's body.
Jeremy's Company file from 2006 reads:
Jeremy had the ability to increase or decrease the healing process. If he increased the healing process in other people, then their wounds heal instantaneously. Jeremy was also able to kill living things simply by touching them. The true process of how he did this is currently unknown.
- When Jeremy was bagged by The Company while he was thirteen, the Company noted his ability as the power to heal living things. They did not note his ability to kill through touch. Whether they were unaware of this power at the time is unknown.
- According to his file, Jeremy was 5'5" ft, weighed 135 lbs, has brown eyes and had light brown hair in 2005.
- In the episode Strange Attractors, Noah Bennet states that Jeremy is 17 years old. Jeremy's birthday was on October 14, 1992, which means he died in 2009.
