Jay was born in 1968 in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. Since receiving his Bachelor of Science degrees in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics from Purdue University in 1990, he has relocated to Pendleton, Indiana, a suburb of Indianapolis. He currently works at a local community college, running one of the computer labs and tutoring desperate math students (of which there are many).

Jay married his wife Patty, who was studying to become an LPN, in 2005; she received her license the following year. People say that Jay and Patty are a cute couple, but Jay believes that Patty's the cute one and he's just mooching.

He is a long-time Doctor Who fan and at one time contributed semi-regular Doctor Who segments to the "Slice of Sci-Fi" podcast. He has also been very active in community theatre.

His most frequent contributions to Wikipedia have been in the domains of Doctor Who and mathematics, as well as general grammar and spelling repair. (You'd think that out of 5,682,824 articles, he'd have found more to do...)

  • Hey, look! I did something big! I recreated Divisibility rule because it was taking over Divisor, into which it had been previously assumed. Let's see if it lasts; general consensus seemed to be that it was a good idea. --Jay (Histrion) 20:26, 6 August 2005 (UTC)
  • To do: flesh out the OmniCode article.
  • No, wait — someone's already done so. Might need more fleshing out, though, especially once version 1.0 hits. --Jay (Histrion) (talkcontribs) 21:57, 5 May 2006 (UTC)
