He retired from the U.S. Coast Guard in 2018 following nearly thirty years of combined active duty and reserve service. Jay currently holds a 200-ton Master endorsed for near coastal waters, able-bodied seaman, able sea-farer unlimited, and various STCW endorsements.

When he isn’t working Jay enjoys running, cycling, swimming, cooking and reading just about anything he can get his hands on.
