    You are a good example of how commitment and hard work pay off and as a New Zealander I am happy to have your skills in our country.

  5. It is my pleasure to write about my dear friend Jay-D who is exceptionally intelligent and knowledgeable. Jay-D has a very impressive personality and carries a finesse. Besides that, he is jovial with a fantastic ability to connect with everyone so I believe that he can capture the attention of his audience/students without any effort. His humour has a lot of substance to it. He is an innately approachable debonair too.

    Jay-D thanks for being my friend.

  6. 0 7085507696 is the world population as I post this;
    There is not even one person, who can match Dr. Jay-D’s personality in being tremendously positive, living life to the max, enjoying the beauty of teaching life experiences and professionalism to others, have the ability to be 100% husband, father, friend, role model & etc
    One should be privileged to have Dr. Jay-D in her/his life as I have done for the past 4-5 years and there is nothing/no one that can take this priceless gift from me. I am currently living in Miami, FL and can’t wait to see Dr. Jay-D back in USA for more golden times … 🙂
