Although he wasn’t born in Texas, Jay got here as fast as he could! Born and raised in southeastern Oklahoma by his mother, Jay graduated high school from Marietta High School and finished his higher education at Southeastern Oklahoma State in Durant. Jay has spent his entire career in service based work where he has cultivated lasting relationships and discovered his life’s passion of helping people. He has been in the financial sector since 2014 where he helps families and business owners protect, prepare and plan for the things that matter most to them. Jay enjoys spending time with his daughters, following sports, and doing anything outdoors. He has been a faithful volunteer with Big Brothers/Big Sisters of North Texas for 10 years. As a result of his service, he has been matched with his “little” Shawn, for the entire 10 years. Jay is an active member of Hillcrest Church of Christ in Gainesville Texas where he leads a life group.
