Jay M. Gordon was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and studied business management at City College in Manhattan. He completed a Masters and began working as a business programmer in 1967, emerging as a network management specialist during the early years of personal computer hardware and software development. After moving to central New Jersey with his wife, Susan and his two daughters, Stacy and Karen, Jay founded Future Systems Technology, an independent consulting firm building corporate network and technology systems along the eastern seaboard. After years of professional and technical writing, Jay began his work in fiction with The Hickory Staff, Book One of the Eldarn Sequence.
In 2002, he was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). He and his wife formed The Jay M. Gordon Foundation for ALS Research, an organization committed to developing a national research database of patient information. The formation of this organization marked the first time that a nation-wide collaborative effort was made to develop a unified, comprehensive and shared database for ALS research. This has been noted by the National Institute of Health and the National Institute for Neurological Diseases and Stroke as a historic milestone in the progress toward finding a cure for this dreadful disease.
Jay Mark Gordon passed away on November 18, 2005.
