Dan and Jay lived just streets apart when growing up in Wyoming on the NSW Central Coast and attended both primary and high school together. In high school Jay spent almost every weekend in the Blue Mountains working as a rock climbing and abseiling instructor. Often teaching difficult skills to people twice his age, Jay become incredibly confident and enjoyed being able to train people to help them overcome physical and mental challenges. These qualities stuck with him throughout his entire career and eventually Jay became a Financial Adviser who takes pride in educating his clients about topics that can sometimes be hard to understand. Reconnecting with Dan in late 2015, the duo started conversations that would eventually lead to the idea behind Fortuity Wealth. Jay’s first son was born early in 2017, during which he has taken a break from the frontline and is now focusing more on strategic business growth and policy.
