Executive Chef Jeremy Mattson
Garnering more than 17 years of experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry including eight years as an executive chef, Jeremy Mattson raises the culinary bar as executive chef of Ocean Prime in Orlando, Fla. First inspired by his childhood world travels where he tasted fine foods and experienced diverse cultures, Mattson has always considered himself an epicure with a passion for hospitality. Much of his motivation comes from his community and his father, from who he regularly seeks culinary advice.

Mattson joined the Ocean Prime team in July 2011 after mastering his culinary skills through a wide range of positions within the Cameron Mitchell Restaurants family since 2003. With experience from line cook to executive chef, he has trained more than 25 sous chefs and was nominated for Cameron Mitchell Restaurants’ “Sous Chef of the Year” and Ruth’s Chris Hospitality Group’s “Executive Chef of the Year,” Mattson was also chosen for Cameron Mitchell Restaurants “Street Fighter” award for best local store marketing, and his previous restaurant was named “Best Seafood” by Hour magazine in Detroit, Mich., and by Weekly Jax in Jacksonville, Fla., under his astute leadership.

Originally from Lansing, Mich., Mattson currently resides in Orlando with his wife and three sons. In his leisure time, he enjoys being with his family, playing hockey, discovering new music and collecting vinyl records.
