In recognition of his time and talents given to the University, the KU Alumni Association is proud to honor Jay Craig with the the Mildred Clodfelter Alumni Award. The award will be presented to Craig, b’85, g’87, at an alumni event in Milwaukee Dec. 13.
After stops in Dallas, San Francisco, and San Diego, Craig’s career in real estate led him to the Milwaukee area. After a couple long nights driving to and from KU alumni watch parties in Chicago, Craig set out to launch a network in his new home.
What began as an attempt to get alumni together to cheer on the Jayhawks has turned into one of the most active KU networks. Milwaukee Jayhawks have enjoyed cruises on the Milwaukee River, brewery tours and charity golf events. They’ve also attended away games together and participated in the KU Cares Month of Service.
Jay completed a bachelor of science degree at the KU School of Business in 1985 while working at the Adams Alumni Center as a bartender. He also earned a Master of Business Administration from the business school in 1987.
In addition to continued participation in the Milwaukee Jayhawk network, Jay currently serves as Vice President – Senior Project Executive at MSI General in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin.
A life member, Jay resides in Fox Point, Wisconsin, with his wife, Jenny, and their children, Garrett and Halle.
