The Ransom Legacy
Jeremy Ransom (MED ’01) is a regional director with the University of Georgia’s development office. He is also a third-generation alumnus of UGA.
Ransom, a Chapin, S.C., native, earned his MED from UGA in 2001, after graduating from Presbyterian College. Prior to joining the development office, he was a staff member with the UGA Athletic Association. His wife, the former Stephanie Yaren (BBA ’00), received her bachelor’s degree from UGA in 2000. They have two children.
Ransom’s father, John Edward Ransom, Jr. (BLA ’70) graduated in 1970, and his wife, Pleasalyn, attended the University and worked with the Cooperative Extension Service and the School of Veterinary Medicine.
The couple moved to South Carolina where John worked for the state before starting his own business. He eventually sold that business and now works for the American Red Cross. Pleasalyn operates a boutique shop in Irmo, S.C.
The Ransom legacy began with Jeremy’s grandfather (BSA ’48), who was a veteran of World War II and served as Postmaster in Unadilla, Ga., for 40 years before retiring. He passed away in 2007. His wife Frances lives in Cordele, Ga.
