Hi I'm Jay

I'm a Husband, Father, Grandfather, rocket scientist and Civil Engineer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love Scouting. Camping and backpacking with scouts played a large part of my youth experience. I worked at Philmont Scout Ranch as a young man. I am an Eagle Scout (as are my two sons). I am a former Scoutmaster. I am retiring from the the Boeing Company at the End of August 2013. I have truly loved the work they have allowed me to do. I currently work in a factory where I can look out my office window and see the aircraft we are producing for our customers then look out the outside window and see aircraft taking off. Aerospace is an awesome business. In July, I get to go the Boy Scouts of America National Jamboree in West Virginia as serve as a volunteer. My wife Lois and I have received a call to serve as Senior Missionaries. We will be going to serve in Thailand for 18 months. I served there as a young missionary many years ago.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days saints because it is through this Church that I get the strength to carry on each day. I am filled with joy from my life, my family and the service I am allowed to perform for the church and others. I was blessed with the opportunity to serve a Mission to Thailand. There, I experienced the joy of teaching others about our Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. I was also able to the share my testimony of them thru the Book of Mormon - Another Testament of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormom Translation was completed into the Thai language while I was there. What a treasure this Book is to the people of the world.

How I live my faith

I serve as the Boy scout committee advancement chairman for the scouting units sponsored by our local congregation. I occasionally get asked to lead the silly scout songs at the Court of Honor that we hold to recognize Boy Scouts in their advancements.
