Jeremy returned to Salem on June 1, 2007, when Stephanie Johnson introduced him and his friend, Jett Carver, to her cousin, Chelsea Brady. Jeremy and Chelsea developed an immediate dislike for one another, whereas Jett developed an interest in her. Jeremy and Jett, both pilots, are going to launch a private flight service, known as Touch the Sky Airlines, in which high rollers from Salem would be flown to Las Vegas once a week. Chelsea and Stephanie have agreed to become flight attendants and Max Brady has signed on as a financial backer. On July 17, 2007, Stephanie Johnson made Jeremy mad, and as a result, he put her head underwater in a hot tub, nearly drowning her; revealing his abusive side to Stephanie. However, he covered this up by declaring how much he loves to be with her. On July 31, 2007, it was revealed that Jeremy was in jail before. The next episode, it was revealed that while he had stolen a car for a joyride and shoplifted when he was younger, he was also convicted of fraud because he set up a bogus charity for cancer-afflicted children and used the proceeds on a condominium and sports car. Jermey had briefly developed a friendship with Sami Brady during his short-term presence in Salem in 2007. On August 14, 2007, Jeremy told Max the truth, and helped save his cousin Nick Fallon and the two boys in Nick's care when they were attacked in their home. Hoping to set his life on the right track again, Jeremy left Salem in October 2007.
