After being born in Frankfurt (that would be Germany, not Kentucky), Jay's family moved to Vandalia, Ohio where Jay spent his time learning to play the greatest game ever (baseball), by smacking the daylights out of fastballs from his next door neighbor Roger Clemens. (Disclaimer: At 9 years of age, this would have been a pre-steroid era.)
During his high school years at Carlisle High School, Jay spent most of his free time at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Center helping his Dad to build the condominiums at the course for a variety of Cincinnati sport's legends like Nancy Lopez, Ross Browner, Tom Seaver and others. In 1981 he watched his father build the ATP Tennis Stadium for the likes of Connors, McEnroe, Lendl and Borg.
Jay's passion for baseball continued thru 1983 when he was invited to tryout for the 1984 US Olympic Baseball Team. A torn hamstring six weeks before the tryouts ended his baseball dream. (He was able to write about the greatest game ever played for Reader's Digest, winning their Editor's Choice award and having it read by more than 88 million people worldwide.)
It was then Jay's attention turned towards the airline industry, where he loved the daily challenges of cancelled flights, delayed luggage (they weren't referred to as 'lost' until they were MIA for 90 days), weather problems and the always-wonderful Sunday after Thanksgiving! Cities Jay worked at included Monroe (LA), Florence (AL), Cincinnati, and Dayton. It was also during these years Jay was able to serve as the Travel Coordinator for the Detroit Lions - spending his Sunday afternoons on the NFL sidelines!
Jay continues that adrenaline rush by educating travelers with information specifically designed to help them find the cheapest of fares, resolve complaints, and having multiple options when flights are cancelled.
Jay lives in the Dayton area with his wife, Sherry and their two boys, and his older daughters serve as nurses to Dayton area hospitals.

DHL Express is hosting job fair to fill 100 new job openings as Cincinnati airport hub expansion nears completion & an additional 200 positions to be filled in late November.
DHL Express, the world’s leading Logistics Company and Northern Kentucky top 10 employer, announced the beginning of a hiring fair. With construction of its 193,000 square foot addition at the CVG hub scheduled to be completed in early November, DHL Express has nearly 100 immediate positions available and another 200 available with start dates before the end of November.
DHL Express will hold a hiring fair on September 18 from 8 a.m. – 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. at the Holiday Inn located off I-275 at the Mineola Pike exit. On-site interviews and job offers will be made to fill the 100 positions available.
“DHL’s expansion at CVG is highly appreciated by Northern Kentucky’s community leaders,” stated Boone County Judge Executive Gary Moore and Chairman of the Tri-County Economic Development Corporation. “We applaud DHL on the provision of a world-class logistics hub here in Northern Kentucky and look forward to a successful Job Fair for DHL’s newest facility at CVG. We are pleased to be a partner with DHL during its continued growth.”
The CVG hub connects the United States to a global network spanning Asia, Europe and the Americas. Processing more than two million international shipments a month, the hub handles shipments bound for the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Latin America, and connects over 100 service centers and five international gateways in the U.S. to over 220 countries around the world.
With this current expansion, DHL Express will have invested $105 million in its CVG hub since establishing its U.S. international hub at the Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky airport in 2009. Staffing has also grown, from 1,600 in late 2009 to approximately 2,000 currently. It is scheduled to expand to nearly 2,300 over the next 4 months and beyond.
