Assistant to the President
Jay grew up in Madisonville KY and received a BA from Vanderbilt and MBA from Indiana University.
After college, Jay began a retail career with the May Department Stores Company, Venture Stores, and the Proffitt’s division of Saks Fifth Avenue.
Jay married his high school sweetheart Suzanne in 1967, and they have three children and nine grandchildren, all living in the Nashville area. When Proffitt’s was bought out in 2006, Jay and Suzanne took an early retirement package and moved to Nashville to be with the family.
Shortly after moving to Nashville, Jay was invited to join a CLC group co-facilitated by Hal Hadden. The day Jay shared his fencepost story, Hal “drafted” Jay to join the CLC staff as his assistant. Jay loves the opportunity to work with the CLC staff and ministry.
