"Graduation After Incarceration: a Rackham Student Earns His Ph.D." - Rackham News. 11/30/2016.

Population Studies Center Director Jeff Morenoff, who along with Dave Harding served as Jay's mentor during his traineeship at the Center, says Jay's life experiences "give him a perspective that few academics have and it also fuels him with a passion for his work that few others can match."
