Born in Queens, New York but claims Houston as his hometown, since he has lived there most of his life. Growing up, he was always a radio nerd, so it makes sense that he would attend and graduate from a college with one of the best radio and television programs in Texas, Alvin Community College.
Jay was so dedicated to pursuing a career in radio that for his first job, he started out on a Christian Country station in Cypress, Texas. His career has taken him from Cypress to Houston then to Indianapolis, Indiana, where he won awards as Minority Broadcaster of the Year in 2008 and Personality of the Year in 2009.
While still new to the Montgomery area, Jay is very philanthropic and looks forward to getting involved in the community and local non-profits. In Indiana, he was very involved in the Food Bank, the Ronald McDonald House, The Caring Place and local domestic violence centers.
He and his wife are best friends. They fell in love over their love of food and music. Not only is Jay inspired by his lovely wife, but his parents as well. He says his father and mother are his heroes. Both of which are immigrants from South America. Coming here, Jay’s parents did not understand the culture or the language but they learned and adapted to make a better life, not just for themselves, but for Jay. He will never be able to repay them and will forever be inspired by them and their hard work and sacrifice.
One thing most people do not know about Jay is that he played in the World Series of Poker tournaments.
