Leadership Delivering Results for All of Our Communities
Jay moved to Nevada in 2001 and settled in the Damonte Ranch area of Reno. Shortly after, he opened up a freelance Graphic Design Studio and Sign Shop in Reno. After several years in South Reno, Jay and his family were looking for a change of pace. In 2005 they purchased a home in the Virginia City Highlands and became Storey County residents. In 2009 and again in 2011, Jay was diagnosed with head and neck cancer. Jay's fight with cancer brought into focus the most important things in life: Family, friends, community, and the beautiful place he calls home. Driven by his desire to give back to his community, Jay decided to run for the Board of Directors of the Virginia City Highlands Property Owners Association in 2013.
As President, Jay took the opportunity to work on improving communications with the neighboring Highland Ranches POA and officials within Storey County. In addition to improving communication, he worked towards better efficiencies with the way the Association manages the roads and their budget. These improvements have directly benefited the residents of the Virginia City Highlands. Over the last 4 years as President, Jay has been afforded the opportunity to interact with residents on a regular basis and address their concerns or issues within the Highlands. His eagerness to solve problems has made him a primary point of contact for all things Highlands.
