As Employment Services Manager for RAMP, Jeremy oversees the job readiness, job development and case management, including peer support and mentoring for individuals with disabilities getting into or returning to the workforce.  One of the newest programs developed overseen by Jeremy is PROJECT SEARCH a school-to-work transition program for students with disabilities housed entirely at Mercyhealth Hospital-Rockton Avenue.  PROJECT SEARCH was among 21 community collaboration programs receiving the Confluence Award at the Rockford Chamber of Commerce's 2107 Confluence Honors event.

PROJECT SEARCH partners include RAMP CIL, Mercyhealth, Belvidere School District and the Illinois Department of Vocational Recreation. Students selected for the program worked in three internships over the course of one year, receiving classroom instruction and hands-on training, including goal setting and career exploration. Each student was supported by a team that included their family, an instructor, a department mentor, rehabilitation counselor and skills trainers to create an employment goal and to support their transition from school to work.

Come learn about this project and how it is changing lives in our community.

Jeff began flying at 8-years old sitting on his father's lap.  He began flying lessons four years later and at 19, he became a flight instructor while going to college.  Kaney's love flying took him into the U.S. Air Force for a decade and then into commercial flying with an international airline. So it is not surprising that when Kaney began to look for another challenge it was focused around aviation.

Starting with an empty hangar with no other employees, Jeff founded Kaney Aerospace, a Rockford-based company that specializes in engineering, manufacturing, assembly and testing of aerospace systems and components.  Today, Kaney Aerospace is housed in a 19,000-saure-foot space with 65 employees.  The company has satellite offices in Seattle; Dayton, Ohio; and England, with customers that  include Boeing, Embraer, GE Aviation, UTC Aerospace and Woodward, just to name a few.  Kaney Aerospace also takes advantage of the engineering and manufacturing expertise found in the surrounding communities.

As a member of the RAEDC, Jeff was instrumental in initiating the Rockford Area Aerospace Network (RAAN) a consortium of companies implementing a strategic plan to increase the competitiveness of the Rockford Region for aeropspace expansion and attraction.
