ABOUT JAY

 
MDwSTAR.png

As a Frederick County native, I understand, more than most, how incredibly fortuitous it was to grow up in "FredCo." It is no coincidence that I possess a strong sense of community, understand the value and importance of working hard, and am passionate about the success of our youth. I am the direct product of great Frederick County men and women.

 

I am an Associate Broker with Frederick Land & Home, a local comprehensive real estate brokerage and an elected member of the Frederick County Board of Education. My wife Beth, also a longtime Frederick resident, and I live in the Ballenger Creek area. We are the proud parents of 2 current, and one graduated, Frederick County Public School students, Ava, Ty, and Keyan. I am a proud TJ Patriot, and completed my undergraduate studies at Shepherd University and graduate work at Frostburg University.
