Jeremy Dannebohm is the Publisher of Memorare Media. In addition to his writings that appear in the Memorandum section of this website, Dannebohm's work has appeared in such publications as One Peter Five and The Remnant

 

All too acquainted with controversy and attacks, both secular and religious, he is sympathetic to those dismayed by the division and extremism that exists on all sides within the Catholic Church and society in general. 

Dannebohm enjoyed a secular career as a writer, speaker, and consultant. He had a brief stint in public service. However, he is perhaps best known for his sardonic observations of current Catholic events. His additional areas of expertise include Eastern Christianity, Mariology, and Sacramental Theology. He also has particular interest in the writings of St. Robert Bellarmine, Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, Dom Prosper Gueranger, St. Ephrem the Syrian, and Pope Leo XIII.

During his professional career Dannebohm served in several high-profile public relations and marketing positions primarily within the newspaper, television, and radio industries. In September 2012, Dannebohm was diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson’s disease. Later that year, he chose to step away from the corporate world and returned to Kansas after residing in California. After returning to his home state, Dannebohm became a sought-after speaker and consultant on rural economic development, and tourism. He served as Governor Sam Brownback’s appointee to the Kansas Commission for Disability Concerns and the Kansas Library Commission. Additionally, he served as administrator of his hometown’s Chamber of Commerce.

​In 2014, Dannebohm was becoming a respected political consultant and civic leader. It wasn’t long before he was tapped to run for public office. After much hesitation, he eventually submitted and became the only non-incumbent candidate to run unopposed during the 2014 election. He was elected to the Kansas House of Representatives, representing the 113th District. On February 24, 2015, after serving only 42 days as a legislator, Dannebohm resigned citing health reasons. Shortly after leaving office, Dannebohm worked on several projects aimed at promoting Parkinson's disease awareness.

Though he had left behind a career in politics, Dannebohm observed that the political divide was increasing at an alarming rate. In an effort to understand both sides, Dannebohm became politically "independent" and acquainted himself with various causes and concerns - both secular and religious. After thorough research and often first-hand involvement, he concluded that both religion and society, have arrived at the same crossroads: a disregard for the sanctity of human life, an assault on the traditional definition of gender and family dynamic, an increase in violence, persecution, divisiveness, confusion, and despair.

Mr. Dannebohm considers himself a commonsense conservative, traditional Catholic. 

Dismayed, however, by the "circular firing squads" that exist both in politics and the Church, Dannebohm's life philosophy is rooted in a quote by St. Thomas More:

"I do not care very much what men say of me, provided that God approves of me."

In 2021, Mr. Dannebohm stepped away from most forms of distraction. He now leads a quasi-eremitical life of reading, writing, and prayer in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Since adopting a more interior way of life, Mr. Dannebohm no longer accepts invitations for interviews or speaking engagements and does not engage in discussion or debate regarding his views and opinions - secular, political, religious, or otherwise.

 

In your charity, please pray the Memorare for Mr. Dannebohm.
