That would be funny if they posed him in his JLS jersey.
actually there is a painter locally who did a great portrait of Jeremy in his Warriors jersey, I saw at Vino Locale

He also played for Kings Mountain I think it was, a Christian middle school in San Jose, before JLS

Good luck, Jeremy, in LA. Good reason to visit the Staples Center. (Imagine how much better you would be if you had led Gunn not Paly to State Title)

and yeah I would probably visit SF to see this. I saw Sarah Cameron Sunde stand still not in wax but in water the other day
