In childhood, Jared had a keen appreciation of the woods and trees that developed into a passion to understand them. As he got older and learned to produce tangible pieces, he learned that the trees he appreciates can also make beautiful works of art. The different species of wood, the grain and the strength, determine which pieces can be made. The joints of furniture need only mortise and tenon, no screws or nails.Jared chose to be a part of Y and J Furniture because of this fascination; he can now take his passion and use it to make others' furniture functional and beautiful. To him, Y and J does some of the most amazing work; he has not only a respect for the craftsmen that create and repair furniture, but he also has a respect for the origin of the piece! Jared takes on the privilege to continue the Y&J name. With great appreciation he looks forward to guiding this local business to new heights with the help of his great crew.
