Jay Strauser

Unity Peer Support Lead

In 1998, Jay started his journey of recovery after learning about AA/NA. As a veteran of Desert Storm he sought help through the VA. Initially, Jay found himself afraid of the stigma around mental illness and it was not until later he was able to address both his mental health and addiction. Jay believes that together we can support and challenge each other to move toward the life we want. Jay likes spending time with his family, dog, hiking, camping, woodcarving, and riding his motorcycle.
