Gail Dayer ~ Development Assistant

Gail joined the Jesup staff when a job change in southern Maine provided an opportunity to join her husband, Jim, who has been working at JAX for a number of years. Our two children had started their independent lives, so we decided to sell our home of 23 years in Yarmouth to settle in beautiful Bar Harbor.  Growing up in central Maine, I have always loved the outdoors. Almost every year, we vacationed in this area camping, hiking and biking. To be able to live here full time is a dream come true. The Jesup was new to me but has quickly become dear – the community, staff, building and history.

I graduated from Bentley College with a degree in Computer Information Systems. I worked at Digital Equipment Corporation as a technical and marketing writer and then moved into management. Most recently, I worked at Unum in their quality assurance and policy and communications area. I love putting things in order and looking for ways to improve processes.
