About Us

Jeremy Bullock Memorial Trust and Charities Through Jeremy

Our background.

The combined Jeremy Bullock Memorial Trust and Charities Through Jeremy were established in memory of Jeremy Bullock in 1994 following his tragic death at Margaret Leary Elementary School in Butte, Montana. Jeremy was the unintended victim of a school shooting on April 12, 1994. The trust and foundation were established initially to construct and maintain a sports complex adjacent to the Margaret Leary school, as well as to provide funding for local organizations in support of student safety – both in memory of Jeremy and to aid students of Montana.

Our Mission

Improve student safety across Montana.

Back in 1994, the State of Montana mourned the loss of Jeremy Bullock. Jeremy was the unintended victim of a school shooting when he was 11 years old. As a family, State, and Nation we have seen these tragedies continue. No one person, department, organization, or State can solve the problem of student safety in schools. It literally takes a Village.

The Jeremy Bullock Memorial Trust’s mission is striving to continue to improve school safety by ensuring all children have a positive and safe learning environment and by providing educators and community stakeholders with the tools to promote a healthy learning environment. We feel that when all children are educated in places of equity, safety, and learning, and when they receive the academic, social, and emotional support that meet their needs, then they can achieve their greatest potential in K-12 education, as well as in college, career, and life.

By holding the annual Jeremy Bullock Safe Schools Summits, we plan to strive to provide educators, faculty and the greater community with these tools.

Created as Charitable Organizations, they provide support and partnership from parents Bill and Robin Bullock, brothers and sister, Josh, Sam, Max and Kaity, grandparents Jack and Penny Copps, and uncle/aunt Steve and Lisa Bullock, as well as our extended families of Kate Stetzner and Ray Rogers to this Safe School Summit. We thank you for your participation in this Summit and even more, in taking back these learnings, sharing and talking about them, and continuing to improve student safety across Montana.
