Daily Inspiration: Meet Jay Pezz

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jay Pezz.

Hi Jay, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
Tracey and I often talked about starting a clothing brand together. We never had time to pursue our dreams. After giving birth to our son we discovered Tracey had leukemia. Having an incredibly difficult time fighting the disease, we lost her to it. The best way I could think of to honor her would be to start the brand in her name for our son. Hopefully, I’m making her proud and our son, one day as he grows.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It’s a learning process. Everything gets smoother with time. Everyone faces challenges, you just can’t quit. The obstacles make you stronger to handle the mission. Gotta believe in your mission.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Tracey clothing is made in Los Angeles. I think the quality is the most important thing in the brand. Often I can picture her yelling at me so I try to make sure she transcends through the brand.

Can you talk to us a bit about happiness and what makes you happy?
My son gives me joy, his name is Cove. Nothing makes me happier than him. Watching him grow through this process is truly the most special thing I’ve experienced in my life. I try to involve him as much as possible. He’s asking to make his clothes now… Hopefully, I can give him the company to run one day.
