In the Beginning

Born in Fort Sumter, South Carolina, Ellis is the only child of father, a career Sergeant in the US Air Force, and his mother, who is currently the COO of the Bank of Oklahoma. Just before high school, Jay and his family settled in Tulsa, Oklahoma. His athletic abilities earned Ellis a basketball scholarship to Concordia University in Portland, Oregon. There he was elected student body President, spent 2 years working with AmeriCorps in Oregon, and completed a successful internship with the Portland Trailblazers before deciding to ultimately follow his childhood dream of becoming an actor.
