The Crossroads: A Life Reshaped
In our tranquil town of Blair, Nebraska, where whispers of the wind play symphonies through the cornfields, a life was being reshaped. Jeremy, a young, ambitious man with dreams of law enforcement, found himself at a crossroads. “I was testing to get into the Omaha Police Department,” he shares, one can imagine his voice infused with nostalgia. But, the winds carried change – he was to become a father. His priorities shifted in the blink of an eye. “I changed my focus away from law enforcement with the fear of something crazy happening and having my children grow up without a father,” he confides.
Embracing the Spectrum: Finding a Craft
As if fate had a design, Jeremy found himself in the world of window tinting. It was a humble beginning as a helper in an Omaha company in 2010, right after the birth of his first son. “This was something I was really good at,” he muses, “and that I could see myself doing for a long time.”
Windows, for Jeremy, became not just glass but canvases waiting for the brush of his squeegee. “I was fascinated by the different shades, the intricate installation processes, and the way a good window tint could completely transform a space,” he elaborates.
Sun 2 Shade: A Dream Materialized
Years of honing his craft culminated in Sun 2 Shade Window Tinting, LLC. But this was no small feat. “The biggest challenge starting my company was just the decision to do it!” he says animatedly. Jeremy wrestled with self-doubt. The echoes of “what-ifs” weighed heavily, but a defining moment changed everything. “I pushed the fear of failure aside and took the leap,” he recalls, his voice tinged with pride.
Sun 2 Shade blossomed and Blair responded. “Nine out of ten local customers of mine know someone that I know and it makes communication seem effortless,” he beams. The bonds of community ran deep.
The Artist’s Palette: Materials and Mastery
Choosing the right materials was akin to an artist selecting the perfect palette. After trials and experiments, Jeremy found solace in Global Window Films. “The films I use are high quality, budget-friendly, carry lifetime warranties, and were rapidly chosen most often when showing samples over other film suppliers,” he explains.
But his magnum opus was the Dual Reflective 25% film. “It offers the best of all aspects of a window tint,” Jeremy asserts, eyes shining, “Clarity, privacy, and sun protection – it’s all there.”
Jeremy’s journey of learning never ceased. “I basically just learned from experience. I’m constantly learning new tricks of the trade,” he says. The town was his teacher, and the windows, his lessons. He developed a reputation not only for his work but also for his personable nature. “I’ve always been great with communication,” he shares.

His wife, his rock, supported him throughout this journey. His family’s unwavering support is the backbone of Sun 2 Shade.

Smashing Expectations: Window Tinting Saves the Day!
Jeremy has witnessed firsthand the remarkable impact of window tinting on enhancing security for businesses. Reflecting on his years of experience, he shared a captivating story that exemplified the effectiveness of security film in thwarting break-ins and safeguarding establishments.
“Years ago, I installed security film at a Scooters location off of 175th and W. Center Road in Omaha,” Jeremy recalled. “Early one morning, a criminal attempted to smash the glass out of one of the windows. He continuously beat on it until his hand bled on the glass, never getting in.”
This incident underscored the resiliency of the security film Jeremy had installed. The criminal’s relentless efforts were met with an impenetrable barrier, leaving him empty-handed and frustrated. As Jeremy vividly remembers, “After realizing that he wasn’t getting what he wanted, he took off.”
The impact of the security film was twofold: it prevented the loss of valuable contents within the Scooters location and provided a crucial lead for law enforcement. “The criminal was also later found and charged due to his DNA being on the glass,” Jeremy explained with a sense of satisfaction. This successful outcome showcased the win-win nature of security film, ensuring the protection of businesses while aiding in the pursuit of justice.
In this particular incident, Scooters escaped any significant losses apart from the cost of replacing a small glass window and reinstalling the security film. As Jeremy emphasized, “Much better than losing contents on the interior of the store.” The incident served as a powerful testament to the effectiveness of security film as a cost-effective security solution for businesses, offering both peace of mind and tangible protection.
