What's Jay Doing



Welcome to my new website!

I am so happy and blessed to be back! A lot of people were wondering what happened to me, some of you know of my circumstances and struggles these past 4 years. For those of you that don’t, I will share briefly what happened. 

2008 was a great year for our family and we completed an extensive tour in Asia. In April of 2009 my beautiful wife Susan passed away after a long battle with a rare autoimmune disease. She was an incredible mother and a great business partner. She is the love of my life and for 22 years we had an amazing life together. 

Since that time my children and I have been trying to heal, lots of tears, late night talks, and prayers to God trying to understand! We took time to raise and train 2 baby tigers to adulthood (which was good therapy) and we have performed a minimal number of shows each year (mostly benefit shows helping out charities in the U.S.) Next month we premier our new show in Spokane, WA. We are excited to be back on the road and working together as a family. As we enter in to this new season in our lives, we hope our story will encourage others who have faced adversity and heartache.

Talk to you soon,
