John Jay Storyboard By: Jordan Green
Born in New York City, on December 12, 1745, John Jay spent his childhood in nearby Rye, New York. Jay had established himself as a successful lawyer.
Jay represented New York at the Continental Congress in 1774. His conservative nature initially had him searching for a way to maintain ties with Great Britain. However, wanting to ensure that colonists' rights would be respected, Jay soon wholeheartedly supported the revolution.
Jay joined Benjamin Franklin in Paris, France, where they negotiated an end to the Revolutionary War with the Treaty of Paris.
Jay joined Alexander Hamilton and James Madison, to write five of the essays that became known as The Federalist Papers.
In 1801, Jay stepped away from public life to retire to his farm in Bedford, New York. He died at his farm on May 17, 1829, at the age of 83. Having served his country for years as a judge, Constitutional advocate and diplomat, and in elected office, Jay merits a place of honor among the Founding Fathers of the United States.
