Jay is the son of Water for Good’s founder, Jim Hocking. He grew up in the Central African Republic, living there until the age of 17. After graduating with a BA in graphic design and management of information science, he worked for a few years as a network administrator for a small office in Indiana. In 2005 he moved to France with his wife Debbie, to manage an old 17th century Château turned conference/retreat center. After volunteering for Water for Good for several years, then working for us part-time a few more years from France, Jay joined our team in early 2013 as our director of communications, and moved to Portland Oregon.
