Since he first spent time with Window World owners during a trip with his friend, Todd Whitworth, Jay knew there was something very special about the organization. Blown away by the stories of hard working people who were able to build a business to support their families, Jay has worked ever since to ensure opportunity continues to abound for Window World and the people who have made it their way of life.
A son of Wilkes County, Jay chased his dream of playing football to Guilford College, where he graduated with a B.S. in Justice and Policy Studies. During his college years, he interned in his father’s law firm and discovered a passion for the law. He attended law school at Campbell University, and subsequently put his penchant for oration and quick thinking to good use in the courtroom.
Now with nearly 25 years of experience as an attorney, Jay still loves what he does. His favorite thing about his career is being in a position to help people. From civil practice to criminal litigation, Jay has done it all.
When Jay’s high school friend, Todd, called about doing some legal work for Window World, Jay agreed to help, consulting in matters from contracts, to negotiations, to employment practices. As Window World grew, so too did the importance of legal counsel. In 2011 when the Board of Directors was formed, Jay’s familiarity with Window World, along with his commitment to seeing through the vision of his late friend, made his appointment a natural fit.
As a member of the Board, Jay is intimately involved in mapping the strategic direction of the Window World business, a task he relishes. He cites the opportunity to work with smart people, for a successful company, and to do some good, as a true gift. His hope is to foster continued growth, creating more of the Window World success stories that first captivated him.
Whether he’s golfing, hunting, or boating, if Jay isn’t at work, there’s a good chance he’s doing something outside. Though an avid outdoorsman, Jay most enjoys spending time with his wife, Beth, and their two sons.
