Jay Schabacker’s varied careers, from aerospace to finance to church ministries and theology, have led him to write several excellent books about finance and investment and also the historical and archeological accuracy of the Holy Bible.
His Cornell University education led to his accomplishments on aerospace projects including work on the Apollo Moon Program at NASA’s Houston Manned Space Center. Later, a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from the George Washington University prompted him to research and write investment newsletters and start the firm – Schabacker Investment Management. Jay, with the help of Marjory Ross, authored the investment and personal finance book – Jay Schabacker’s Winning in Mutual Funds, published in 1994
by the American Management Association.
For four decades, Jay has been an enthusiastic benefactor and contributor to numerous Christian organizations and activities. A short list includes: Sunday School Superintendent (Darnestown Presbyterian, Darnestown, MD), Chairman of Board of Trustees (Central Baptist Church, Gaithersburg, MD), Board of Directors (Middle Creek Bible Conference, Gettysburg, PA), Board of Visitors (Southeast Baptist Theological Seminary, Wake Forest, NC), Chairman of the Board (Romanian Christian Enterprises, Washington, DC), and Chairman of the 1992 Back to Genesis Washington, D.C. Seminar sponsored by the Institute for Creation Research.
Now an enthusiastic devotee of Bible studies and things eternal, Jay travels with his wife, Nancy, to contemplate the Pyramids of Egypt and the Great Wall of China – studying the marvels of the world around us. Jay's latest book, Did The Hebrew Exodus Truly Happen?, is about the exciting corroborative archaeological and scientific research that assures us that the Hebrew Exodus truly did happen!
Jay is proud of his four daughters, six grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. He and his wife, Nancy, now enjoy living in beautiful Lexington, South Carolina, where he raises orchids. They are members of the First Presbyterian
Church (ARP) of Columbia, South Carolina.
