Jeremy Cowan

Jeremy Cowan is a podiatric physician living and practicing in Chicago, IL, USA.


His wife is an elementary school teacher and his son is studying Engineering at university. Jeremy is mostly Scottish in ancestry and his wife is of Spanish descent (Gallego). They are both fluent in Spanish. Jeremy has also studied a number of other languages to differing levels of competence, but English and Spanish are the only ones he currently counts as fluent.

Mostly, when Jeremy studies Klingon, he likes to pretend that he is a human studying an alien language and culture. But occasionally he begins to fall under the dillusion that he is Klingon, which is generally when he uses the name janSIy. He has occasionally also been called by the nick name qamQel.

Jeremy joined the KLI in 1992. Perhaps his most significant contribution to the Klingon speaking community has been his letter that appeared in TV Guide in January 1993. From that mention, a media frenzy was sparked and the KLI and the Klingon language got their first moment in the spotlight.

Jeremy was also one of the teachers at the Klingon Language Camp in Red Lake Falls, MN, in August of 1993. It was at this camp that he discovered the talent of reading pIqaD in mirror image.

Since then he has continued to be involved in the KLI and the Klingon language peripherally. He attended the 3rd, 4th, 8th, 11th, and 19th through 23rd qep'a'mey. Since 2015, Jeremy has been the qep'a' coordinator for the KLI and organized the qep'a' in Chicago from 2015-2017.

At qep'a' 22 in 2016, Jeremy was awarded the Friend of Maltz certificate for his efforts for the KLI.
