Matthew's connection to CPR and cardiac arrest is personal. At age nine, in 1990 his father died from a cardiac arrest. Twenty years later his step-father also died from cardiac arrest. In 2017 the American Red Cross awarded Mr. Wolf with the Certificate of Merit after performing bystander CPR on a friend in two separate events spanning seven months. The victim's proximity to CPR aid was key to survival. His lifelong experiences with these events serve as the origin story and catalyst for CPR Save. Mr. Wolf recently became a Red Cross CPR/First Aid/AED Instructor.

As an entrepreneur Jeremy has continued his support of innovative education engagement as a founding board member of Early Childhood Learning Scholarship Fund; a charity that supports pre-K education in the Boston area.
