Meet our founder

Jeremy Affeldt has a passion for people that stems from his Christian faith and a deep belief in loving your neighbor as yourself. A Spokane hometown sports hero, Jeremy’s baseball career began at Northwest Christian High School. Drafted in 1997, Jeremy was a Major League Baseball pitcher for three teams, winning 3 World Series Championships with the San Francisco Giants.

While he experienced professional success, Jeremy found deeper meaning in connecting with his community and empowering youth, which led to him founding Generation Alive in 2006. His vision is to eliminate the suffering of others and to empower a rising generation of youth to lead our communities with compassion and kindness.

“I want to see a generation that’s alive because they’ve got a reason to be; I started this organization so kids can experience what it feels like to not live for yourself.”
