Jay is gentle, kind, and compassionate. I think of Jay as an old soul. He grew up in the country with both his parents and his older brother. He also has an older half-sister. Jay's brother is 12 years older than him, and he moved out of the house by the time Jay turned 6. He was basically raised as an only child. Jay's dad is a former team roper in the rodeo. He spent his weekends traveling with his parents to Old Timer's rodeos. Spending time on the road with a bunch of older cowboys led Jay to form his old fashioned southern values. He is still extremely close to his parents. We talk to them on a weekly basis and get to visit them at least once a month. Jay enjoys being outdoors. His favorite outdoor activities are fishing, kayaking, and golfing. Jay also likes to watch sports and attend sporting events. He loves the Baylor Bears and the Texas Rangers. He is also a huge WWE fan and loves professional wrestling. Jay is a sports turf manager. This means that he beautifully manicures all of the sports fields for a local private school. He works very hard and is loved by the community at the school. On weekends, Jay loves to cook Saturday breakfast for Amber and bring it to her in bed where they enjoy Saturday morning cartoons. Jay's favorite is Batman. He even had a Batman cake at our wedding. Jay is an excellent father to Annemarie. They love to spend time together. Since she was born, he has carried her to bed and tucked her in after telling Mommy goodnight. Every day when we get home from work, Annemarie is waiting for him to help feed and walk our sweet dog, Pazely.
