Meet Jay


A family man, parent of two Parkland kids, a successful business leader and a local community volunteer, Jay is committed to understanding and serving the needs of the Parkland school district. He is deeply involved within the school community as a member of Parkland's Community Advisory Council, Multicultural Awareness Committee and Education Foundation Board.

Jay uses technology to solve complex business problems in his work life. He intends to use the same skills to achieve more while spending less for Parkland school district. He currently works as a global industry principal at Pegasystems Inc, a multi-million dollar software solutions company. He believes that his business acumen, positive attitude, enthusiasm, and problem solving ability could be an asset to the Parkland school board.

Jay is an alternate member of the Upper Macungie zoning hearing board and also serves on Lehigh county personnel review board. With his volunteer efforts for American Cancer Society, GBSL soccer, Springhouse science team and at Allentown temple, Jay continues to give back to the community, he is both privileged to be part of, and hopes to represent.

Jay and his wife live in Fogelsville with their two kids. When not working or volunteering, he loves cooking, travelling and playing/watching all sports (especially football & tennis).

Jay believes that no boundaries should limit our students from achieving excellence. He aims to work hard for the progress of our schools, children and the entire education system. Jay knows that "we have always done it this way" is one of the most unhelpful phrases in English. He knows that he can bring some fresh new ideas to our board.

Views and Vision


Our children will decide the future of our country and providing them with the best education possible is the least we can do to help them on their path to greatness. Parkland school district is lucky to have an adminstration and board that believes the same. Jay wants to get elected to the board for his kids, to volunteer and give time to community, make a positive difference and get the collective voices of everyone heard. That collective voice can truly make a positive difference towards better education for our kids. His plan for Parkland is based on four pillars:

  • Having an open door policy for parents's suggestions.

  • Improving college preparedness through alumni and local business leader mentorship.

  • Better fiscal responsibility by using technology alternatives, thereby keeping property taxes in check.

  • Uplifting Parkland's state rankings via micro-targeted education programs that help our kids while preserving property values at the same time.
