Our Know your Exchangite today was Jay Barnes. Jay has been a member of the Exchange since January 2010. His birthday is November 6th and although he was wearing red today he made it very clear he was not rooting for the University of Utah. Jay served an LDS mission to Romania and is married to Jana. He is an attorney at the law office of Dabney and Dabney. When I googled the name Jay Barnes, this is the first picture that showed up. (Seriously, try googling the name Jay Barnes yourself!)
