During Jay’s tenure, he has been known for his strong vision and passion to produce innovative new products contained in groundbreaking infrared heat-reflective paint and coating product lines. He also is the inventor of five patents and establishing TEX•COTE as a premier manufacturer in the coatings industry. Jay took the helm of TEX•COTE in January 1996, after a career as an assistant district attorney in San Diego. He also was actively involved with the Environmental Protection Agency in the 1990s, helping to create new rules on volatile organic compounds.
