A development executive with nearly 40 years of experience, Jay is a founding member of Constellation Advancement, bringing the deep resources of The Angeletti Group to Constellation to serve a broader range of clients with a full continuum of services. Jay serves clients engaged in independent and higher education, healthcare and academic medicine, and community building initiatives. Before doing so, Jay served Choate Rosemary Hall, Yale University School of Medicine, the University of Pennsylvania Health System, Drew University, and New York-Presbyterian Hospital.
Jay’s extensive client list includes many of the nation’s leading independent schools, universities, medical institutions, and nonprofits. Clients include Yale New Haven Health, Sharp HealthCare, The United States Equestrian Team, The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, as well as many of the nation’s finest independent schools, colleges and universities. He is a sought-after speaker and writer, and presents often for national nonprofit professional organizations, including Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), Association for Fundraising Professionals (AFP), and BoardSource. Jay is Vice Chair of the Board of Directors of the LIM Fashion Education Foundation.
Jay oversaw the highly successful $1 billion campaign for New York-Presbyterian—the first institution-wide effort since the merger of Columbia Presbyterian and New York Hospitals. During the campaign, annual philanthropic revenue increased from approximately $75 million to more than $200 million.
At Drew, Jay worked with University President and former New Jersey Governor Tom Kean to build its development and alumni/ae affairs program. He served as the architect for the University’s first comprehensive campaign ($85 million) and increased alumni/ae participation from 25% to 45% during this same time.
At Yale, as Senior Development Officer for the surgical and neurosciences, Jay coordinated the planning effort that launched the School of Medicine’s $285 million component of the $1.5 billion Yale campaign. At Penn, in addition to serving on a team of three who planned a $600 million health system campaign, Jay was responsible for the campaign’s first priority—a unique and bold $77 million initiative designed ultimately to establish Penn as the only tuition-free medical school.
Jay received his B.A. from Lake Forest College and studied public administration and nonprofit management at the University of Connecticut.
