Senior Vice President
After graduating from the University of Nebraska Omaha in 1998 with a Bachelor’s degree in Aviation Studies, Jay began his professional career in aviation with Mayo Aviation in Denver, CO. He served as a charter coordinator/flight operations specialist and was promoted to Flight Operations Manager a few months later.
Jay remained with Mayo Aviation until 2002, when he returned to his home state of Nebraska to begin his career with Jet Linx. In 2007, Jay was promoted to Vice President of Flight Coordination, where he was responsible for overseeing the Flight Scheduling and Charter Sales Department, crew scheduling, and the continual growth and development of a nationwide charter and private jet card program.
Since early 2012, Jay has held numerous roles, including the Vice President of New Base Development, focusing on the start-up phase of new Jet Linx Bases around the country, and Executive Vice President to help oversee all Base locations throughout the organization. In January of 2020, due to the dynamic growth of the organization, Jay became Senior Vice President, splitting the Bases to create added bandwidth to the organization and additional oversight to day-to-day activity. Today, Jay is one of seven Regional Base Presidents and Senior Vice President of Aircraft Acquisitions and Sales.
