He played all school sports, but most of all, he loved baseball. Jay later grew to love hunting and fishing and embraced that as his passion. He loved to take his sons horn hunting. Jay would take the horns and hide them so the boys could find them again. Jay worked at Hearth and Home and at Vaagen Brothers Lumber. Jay's major passion was cutting firewood and his sons.
