Jeremy Yamaguchi

Mayor, City of Placentia

By Elaine Murphy & Sarah VaughnPublished: May 01, 2012

Jeremy Yamaguchi made OC METRO’s 40 Under 40 list in 2009 as the youngest ever Placentia city council member. Now, this ambitious public leader is back at the top of our charts with even more boast-worthy accomplishments. At 23 years old, he’s been elected the youngest mayor of Placentia. Despite all that he has accomplished, Yamaguchi’s proudest moment – earning the rank of Eagle Scout – is unrelated to his professional life, proving that he is a well-rounded young man.
   
Although his professional accomplishments have come at a young age, Yamaguchi has experienced success ever since elementary school, when he won first prize in a citywide photography contest.
   
“My passion for service, perseverance, excellence and enthusiasm to help others continues to propel me toward new endeavors and continued successes in opportunities to serve others,” he says.
   
Yamaguchi served in public office while attending Cal State Fullerton, where he aptly majored in political science. Some day, he aspires to open his own law firm in Orange County. placentia.org

First job: Working in his family’s business
