About Commissioner Jay C. Block
Commissioner Jay C. Block was born in Manchester, NH and grew up with a strong interest to serve at a young age. In 1987 and early 1988, he worked for the Jack Kemp for President campaign during the New Hampshire primary season. In 1989, Jay graduated from high school and decided to serve his country by enlisting in the Air Force Reserve. He then transferred to the Air National Guard in North Dakota while attending college at North Dakota State University where he interned for a U.S. Senator in 1993 and graduated in 1995 with a political science degree and a commission through the Air Force ROTC program.
During Jay’s distinguished 21+ years as an officer he served in numerous nuclear assignments to include, an ICBM missile maintenance and launch officer where he was hand-selected to test launch a Minuteman III ICBM in 2001. Later that year Jay earned a master’s degree in international relations from Troy State University that would help him during later assignments. Jay felt the need to serve and contribute to the effort during the Global War on Terrorism so he volunteered to serve in Afghanistan in 2005 and 2006, where his biggest impact was volunteering to command and organize numerous humanitarian missions for the Afghan people.
Jay also had the distinction to command at two different locations where he served as the senior American officer representing our country on Ascension Island in the South Atlantic and at Volkel Air Base in The Netherlands. Jay retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in 2016 and he and his family decided to stay in Rio Rancho to settle down with their kids after 12 moves in 21 years.
Due to his vast experience working in the nuclear enterprise, Jay started a second career as a consultant with a large firm in private industry where he is also involved in business development.
Jay is married to his wife of 22 years Kelli, a proud Korean-American, and together they have three kids, one is a recent UNM graduate and the other two attend Rio Rancho High School.
Jay is dedicated to bringing economic development to Sandoval County and is involved in several charities in our county.
