Jeremy Onishea
Deputy Director of Ambassador Program

Binghamton, NY

Hail to the members of The Asatru Community!


My name Is Jeremy Onishea Sr. I found The Asatru Community Inc while researching inclusive heathenry learning groups online in early 2020. After reading the description and looking around the website it seemed like the place for me, so I became a member. That was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Within TAC I found more than just some “assembly” of people. I found a family and a community where all our members strive to help and lift each other up whenever possible. I haven’t ever really had a place I felt I “belong” until now.


I completed ambassador training in October 2020 and became A lead ambassador in November then World Wandering Lead in Late December 2020. I am also the chairmen of the Partner business Program, as well as owner and operator of an Asgardian Partner Business with my son. I am an empath who has a passion for learning as well as helping others in any way I can. The Ambassador Program has given me an opportunity to help guide others on their learning path as well as progress my own search for wisdom.


I look forward to further assisting the amazing ambassadors and members of The Asatru Community within my newest roll as Deputy Director of The Ambassador Program. I am always here to help if anyone has need of me!

Kittery, Maine.

Hail All!
My Name is Jeff. "It's Heffa" I am a Corpsman in the United States Navy and have been for almost 13 years. I am happily married for 12.5 years and have a beautiful daughter.
I like so many others grew up in a Christian household, however I didn't find that relationship with the Christian God that I so desperately desired. After about 3 years in the military I came across some Wiccans, introduced to me by my wife. They invited me to one of their rituals. As soon as i crossed that threshold and entered that circle i had never felt so at home. Being Pagan/Wiccan sufficed for a few years but over time something just didn't fit.
Finally in 2018 when I participated in a Nato operation where i got to conduct ground operations in Norway and Iceland. Going to Iceland and Norway i instantly felt a connection to the Norse Gods and nothing could have been clearer. I have followed them since then.
I am honored to have this oprotunity to become an Ambassador. I hope to help serve the community in the future.
