Meet Jay

With a philosophy of “Work hard, be empathetic, and reduce stress with good-humor,” Jay is leading the future for the Chicago office. Raised in Wisconsin and graduating from Milwaukee Area Technical College, Jay joined Interplan in 2007 as an ambitious Project Manager. A beloved and influential leader, Jay is known for living by his philosophy while also being present, reliable, forward-thinking, open-minded and detail-oriented. Helping to pioneer the future for Interplan, Jay has served on special projects at Interplan for company rebranding and conducting market research.

A husband and father, Jay enjoys time with family and friends in his Wheaton home and up in Wisconsin. He is an avid sports fan and enjoys golfing with his buddies. His young son keeps him entertained with endless giggles and “first time” events, and when he and his wife get the occasional date night, you’re most likely to find them having dinner and cocktails while enjoying live music. If you really want to get on Jay’s good side, take him for a sushi lunch.
