Jeffrey A. Young ’83

Published in the July11, 2012, issue

After a heart attack, Jay Young was suddenly called to eternal glory Feb. 12, 2012.

At Princeton, he majored in economics, started at defensive end for the freshman football team, and served on the honor and disciplinary committees. Jay received a law degree from UCLA and a master’s degree in international management from the University of Maryland.

Jay served in many leadership roles, including as executive director and COO of the DC Lottery and Charitable Games Control Board; president of the Washington Technology Council; co-founder of the Potomac Coalition, a business and public policy-advocacy organization that advises urban communities on wealth creation and business development; and the owner of CXO Consulting. He served on the Harvard Business Review advisory council, and published the business book Are You Ineffective? in 2007.

A Pittsburgh native, Jay was an avid Steelers and sports fan. Jay strived for excellence, was a friend to many, and was a devoted father and coach of his son’s sports teams. An active alumnus, he served on the ABPA board of directors and in several Annual Giving roles.

Jay is survived by his wife, Dr. Ebondo Mpinga-Young; and his son, Jared Young.
