After nearly 12 years in the Royal Australian Air Force and being medically discharged in 2019 with a life changing back injury, Jye started volunteering in the veteran community. Since then, he has volunteered for several Ex-Service Organisations and worked part-time for Solider On as a Programs Officer in the Newcastle and Hunter area. Jye has firsthand experience in how sport can positively impact lives and improve health and wellbeing. After his spinal surgery, Jye thought he wouldn’t be able to play sport ever again. He is currently back in the gym, playing golf and coaches junior Football. All of which have had a positive impact on his life. A sport fanatic, he enjoys Football, Golf, Cricket and Rugby League just to name a few. In his spare time, you will find him coaching his kids Football team or cooking for his family on one of his many BBQ’s.
