Jay attended Western Illinois University where he graduated with a bachelor's degree in agriculture in 1990.

He worked at Western with the university catering (Marriott/Sodexo) department for a number of years before leaving to work for Help at Home, where he has worked for the past 10 years. Jay's duties there are to assist in home healthcare for the elderly.

He enjoys taking care of his clients and finds it very rewarding.
