The (original) Jer-Bears were Jeremy's RC group from Duke West Term I 2011. They are credited with bringing most of the campus-wide trends that showed up throughout the term, such as NASCAR, yelling in a Lil' Jon voice, and Parkour. Everywhere they went, they would shout "NASCARRRRRRR!" and "PARKOUR!", and their signs saying "I'm a Jer-Bear" were circulated throughout all of Kilgo Quad. Most of the campus regarded the Jer-Bears as the principal purveyors of spirit during the term; an example of this is keeping Quadfest interesting for all the teams through the use of two giant flags, a blue morphsuit, and much cheering, even in light of impending defeat by the Red Team. The Jer-Bears also developed the LIFESTYLE of Jeremyism, which was a way to express their love for their leader, Jeremy. Unfortunately, it was passed off as a religious cult and the Jer-Bears were forced to stop proclaiming their views, but fortunately, they were allowed to keep the name of Jer-Bears, because there is absolutely nothing offensive about the word "Jer-Bear."


The Jer-Bears are now officially legends. There was much talk about Jer-Bears at West Term 1 2012 as they were remembered fondly for all of their many accomplishments.
