Faces at TRIP – Jay Coons

Jay Coons, Maintenance Mechanic

Zoey & Jake

Jay Coons is a lifelong Troy resident and has been working with TRIP’s maintenance staff for just 18 months. Jay’s job as a maintenance mechanic involves preparing apartments between tenancies – painting and repairing things — as well as general maintenance requests such as dealing with plumbing, heating and electrical issues. Jay loves the fact that every day at TRIP is a different work day. There is also always plenty to do, so he can keep busy and the day flies by. He says that he “comes in, gets to work, and the next thing he knows it is 3 o’clock – it’s great!”

When Jay isn’t working, he is focused on the three loves of his life: Kelly, his girlfriend of 8 years and his first love, his American Bulldog named Zoey, and his Calico named Sasha. Jay loves all animals and his favorite thing to do is take Zoey for walks and play with her. When Jay can get away, he and Kelly escape to her family’s camp on Caroga Lake where he can recharge and relax with Kelly and Zoey. Jay also considers himself something of a sports nut. He is an avid Dodgers, Raiders, Lakers and North Carolina basketball fan. 
Jay’s coworkers enjoy his sense of humor and helpful demeanor – he has been a great addition to our team!
