Three Cheers for Jay Moss, The September 2018 FUAN Advocate of the Month.
For those that might not be familiar with Jay, you probably live a more “normal” life. Jay Moss is the FUAN Advocate of the Month for his relentless/revealing crusade to help others share their experiences and solutions towards Family Law Reform on local and national levels. His networking and uniting of the community are outstanding.
The difference between love and like is the ability to lay down your life for what you believe in. Greater love hath no man than this that a man would lay down his life for a friend – Jay Moss.
Why Is Jay Moss A FUAN Advocate?
Mr. Moss has been an advocate in the parental equality community for the last ten years since his separation. Jay's interest in Family Law Reform was born around this time as well.
Jay is a Certified Veterans Advocate with training in Suicide Prevention. He is a former co-founder for the Family Law Reformation Movement. Jay is also an administrator for several other groups including Parent United Worldwide. He is a member of The Future of Our Children Radio Network. Jay is the Executive Producer of the Far From Normal Radio Show. Soon you can hear him on a spin-off project: Talking Normal.
The dynamic of these shows is to tell people's stories authentically and provide some education. Adding humor and empowerment as well as entertainment to that mix is icing on the cake. To that end, they developed the acronym S.A.R.S.A. (Story, Anticipation, Reality, Surprise, and Action) Every show has these elements somewhere with the show.
What is Jay's Background?
Jay Moss was born October 20th, 1972, in Decatur Illinois, the soybean capital of the world. Jay's always been helping people and mixing in the arts. He was three weeks old when he played Baby Jesus in the Tabernacle Baptist Church passion play.
Jay's father was a former biker (and laborer), and his mother, a homemaker. He has one younger brother and grew up as a member of the Baptist church. His grandfather is a Deacon, a board member, and a Sunday school teacher. Jay's uncle and three other cousins are becoming pastors. And three other family members also work on the church staff.
Jay has a fascination with music and the arts as well as athletics. He played baseball, basketball (as a member of the 6th-grade all-city championship team) and football. One of the youngest students to be selected for All-state Honors Choir in Illinois, he made the decision music was much more his passion. From then on, he concentrated on music theory in high school.
Jay Moss also performed in many musical productions for his high school and the city. He went on to major in radio communications at Olivet Nazarene University in Kankakee Illinois. Later, Jay enrolled in the military as a Chaplain's Assistant with the blessings of his home church. He was stationed out of the 46th Group. At the time, they helped the 18th Airborne transition to the 82nd Airborne. Jay's duties included providing religious support, counseling, and logistical support for over five thousand troops and their families.
After his time in the military, Jay worked for an electronics chain in service and support for around 5 years. After that, he accepted a job for one of the largest insurance companies in the world. This job provided many opportunities working directly with vendors and sponsorship related work. This allowed him to work with his two main loves again… sport and music. During this time, Jay began building a network of people in the sports and entertainment industry.
