Jay has been in business since the age of 8.

He started his first business selling concessions at a baseball field, from a little red wagon, because people gotta eat, and 8 year olds need money too.

A few years later, he got into web design and hasn’t left since. He started working on the internet in 1996 and started Design Extensions in 1999, at the age of 17, while he was still a student at Nease High School.

Design Extensions has grown year over year for over 17 years and Jay believes in running a lifestyle business focused on people.

When he’s not focused on work, Jay spends most of his time with his wife, Claire, and 5 young children. He’s also an active member at Good News Church in St. Augustine, Florida.
