Blue Jay Wireless is the socially conscious technology distributor. Operating in 18 states and expanding, we believe that everyone should have access to the safety and convenience of wireless service. Blue Jay Wireless participates in the federal Lifeline Program, which is designed to help low-income consumers gain access to important telephone services at reduced rates.
We believe in helping others, and that philosophy rings true throughout the company. Every employee is whole-heartedly on board with what Blue Jay stands for. It’s not about phones -- it’s about connecting people to employers, potential employers, family, and friends with a cell phone. Our Samaritan program creates a career path with advancement opportunities so that our entire team can gain dignity in society while being empowered to help us, help others, help you.

Prior to joining Blue Jay in 2015, Daniel spent eight years at KPMG. He performed financial audits of companies with revenues ranging from $5 million to more than $6 billion, in industries such as telecommunications, manufacturing and retail. Daniel’s experience working in diverse industries and within a wide range of company cultures gives him a unique perspective and skill set that he uses to constantly invigorate his team and encourage innovation. Daniel graduated first in his class at Texas A&M University, earning a BBA in accounting and an MS in finance.
Daniel is deeply passionate about helping others, especially children. All too often children are victims of their environments, given little hope to succeed, and often lack role models and people that are passionate about them. His favorite thing about Blue Jay? The people! It’s rare that a company is focused on the customer experience and community outreach over everything else.
