He was born April 7, 1928 in San Francisco, California. James (Jay) was a cadet at the US Coast Guard Academy and during the Korean War he flew anti-submarine patrols along the U.S. East Coast as lieutenant in the U.S. Navy. After leaving the Navy, Jay received a degree in Physics from Bucknell University in Pennsylvania and went on to work in the aerospace industry.
