Hi I'm D. Jay

I am a family man, I teach theatre technology, I have been working in the theatre for over 34 years, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of 4 wonderful children. I have been married to my beautiful bride for 19 wonderful years. I have two college degrees; one in Computer Science and the other in Electronics Engineering. I have played over 20 instruments proficiently, but am so out of practice now that I would have to start learning the instruments over from the beginning. I have been working in theatre as a technician for over 34 years. I loved theatre so much that I made it my occupation. I now work for the school district as a theatre technician and teacher of theatre technology. I love teaching my hobby to students who don't want to act, but still have interest in working in the theatre. I love to see the expression on the students faces when they finally find purpose in their lives.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were Mormons when I was born. I have been a Mormon all my life. Through all of the many trials in my life, I am greatful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the faith has given me. When I was very young, my parents divorced. I felt alone. I felt hurt. At times I felt as if I was being punished. In order to assist my mother, she moved closer to her mother and father. I was blessed to meet several members of the Mormon faith who were willing to take me under their wings and treat me as their own. I was forunate because I was raised by many fathers who practiced great faith in Jesus Christ by taking a young boy in as their own. I learned many great things about the Gospel of Jesus Christ through their example. Mostly, I learned how Heavenly Father wants us to be happy and have a happy family here on earth so that we can be happy eternally. Because of the examples of those Christian men in my life, I have now been happilly married for 19 years and have four wonderful children. I know that through the Gospel of Jesus Christ we can be happy here on this Earth while we prepare for our eternal salvation in Heaven. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ is true. I know that the Book of Mormon was translated by a man chosen of God to continue his work here on this Earth. A prophet, seer, and revelator named Joseph Smith. I know that our church is lead by a prophet chosen of God to do the Lord's work. I am greatful the Gospel teaches us who we are, why we are here, and where we are going. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I have been the Elder's Quorum President in our ward. I am currently the ward website administrator. I enjoy doing service and helping those in need when I can. My goal as website administrator is to ensure that all members of our ward know what activites each auxiliary is doing. I hope to be able to help those who have a hard time using a computer to be more comfortable using it so that they can also help with extracting names for temple work to be completed for those who have passed on.
