Leads our new business development and sales initiatives at The Squad. Jay is also involved in oversight of the business; our elder, or deacon, of sorts. Jay still rolls up the sleeves and can be found handling the odds and ins that business owners just do—like hanging pictures on the wall and making a run to the Apple Store to ensure our team is well equipped.
Jay is also a musician (singer/songwriter) and has a couple of CDs. He has a wife named Sarah and two daughters, Megan and Kelly … plus a dog named Ranger. He plays golf and is always up for some Jet’s pizza or Jimmy John’s at lunchtime. Jay and his family attend Southeast Christian Church Blankenbaker Campus.
