Biography

Dr. Jay Strack is an effective communicator author and minister from Orlando, Florida, who has devoted his life to helping people become winners. Having overcome his own drug addiction as an adolescent, he believes, "If I can overcome, anyone can overcome." Acclaimed as a dynamic speaker by leaders in the business and educational sectors, as well as the religious arena, Dr. Strack has spoken to an estimated 15 million people in his three decades of ministry.

In the early 1970s, Jay Strack wondered where his life was going. He came from a home racked by divorce several times over, and had been emotionally, physically and sexually abused. He was into drugs and alcohol. Charleston Southern University took a chance on Jay Strack, giving him a semester to prove himself. Less than three years later, he had earned degrees in religion and psychology. "I went from totally unmotivated to a doctorate degree," he says. "From getting stoned and thinking school is a waste of time to being radically committed to it. Now I have degrees on every wall of my office."

Dr. Strack's versatile style has been presented across the U.S. and in 22 countries. He has spoken before government entities, corporate groups, and numerous professional sports teams in the NFL, NBA, and MLB, and to over 10,000 high school assemblies and at 100 universities. Dr. Jay Strack has presented his message of hope to both Air Force Academy students and faculty, and was the featured speaker for the 1998 NBA All-Star Chapel. Commended for his work against drugs by former secretary of education, William Bennett, and former First Lady Nancy Reagan, Dr. Strack has been interviewed nationally and internationally on radio and television including CNN, the McNeil Lehrer Report and the 700 Club.

Jay Strack has trained leaders for some of the largest corporations around the globe, and is a speaker known for instilling the qualities and character development necessary for success. Jay Strack's clients include NASA, Wal-Mart, Chick-fil-A, Johnson & Johnson, General Motors, Pfizer Pharmaceutical, WenSouth, Homebanc, Universal Studios, SunTrust, Florida Homebuilders, Megatel Computer Corporation, RDV Sports, and many others. Dr. Strack has spoken at venues such as the Georgia Dome, Astrodome, Super Dome, the Reunion Arena, and the Olympic Village Stadium in Moscow, Russia.

Challenged by the knowledge that many young people lack the skills necessary for strong leadership development, Jay Strack created a program called the Student Leadership University, targeted to middle and high school students to help develop their leadership skills.

Dr. Strack is the author of more than 15 books including Good Kids Who Do Bad Things: How to Help Your Kids Make Good Choices.
