My name is Jay – short for Jabagh. I’m not really sure what to write, but the epidemic in Syria always seems to tug at me emotionally as I was born in Damascus, Syria.

I came to the US when I was 2 and have had to overcome a lot of obstacles from financial and religious adversities to language and cultural challenges.

Through hard work and commitment to my dream I was able to endure. I pray for a free Syria, free of violence and fear.

I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice after earning a football scholarship to Minot State University.

For the last 18 years I’ve been employed as a Parole Agent with the State of California.

Recently I was honoured by the City of Los Angeles as Parole Agent of the year. An accolade I am humbled and proud to hold.

Following my passion and through dedication I also work among celebrities and executives doing executive protection. I’ve been doiuntitled (17)ng this for the past 10 years working with the likes of Marilyn Manson, Rihanna and Conor Mcgregor handling some of their security needs when they are in the Los Angeles area.

From a young age this has always been a dream of mine to provide security to the elite of the entertainment industry.

My story is my story – I just wanted to share that being true to your passions and by following your hear you can achieve whatever you want in life.

“Always be grateful, It opens the door for more gratefulness”
