Jay grew up in New Caanan, CT and spent most of his childhood summers fishing, boating and working at several marinas in Norwalk. He has worked for Norm Bloom and Son since 1995 and has operated several of the clam, oyster and lobster boats. Other than Norm, Jay has probably operated every vessel in our fleet over the course of his career.
He currently manages our New Haven grounds and operates the 110-foot suction/shell boat, the “Jeanne Christine” He is also responsible for mechanical work, fiber-glassing and restorative work on all the boats. When Jay is not working, he enjoys fishing off the dock (the best boat – no motor to fix!), boating with his wife, Patty, and their two grandchildren as well as carpentry, camping and restoring antique cars.
