Jeremy Marushia (1:22)

With less than 6 months experience, Jeremy is Cobalt’s youngest and only “Red Hat” miner. Recently married and soon to be a father, Jeremy is looking to jump-start a long career in coal mining to support his family. He hopes to follow in his cousin, Jonathan Dotson’s, footsteps and work his way up to a Roof Bolter position. When Jeremy was fresh out of high school, his father tried to encourage him to go to college and get a job outside the mines, but he wanted to feel like a true West Virginian and call himself a coal miner.
