Jay Leach

Jay Leach ’85 has been staying busy since he retired as a teacher-coach at his alma mater.

Leach served at Norfolk Academy for 24 years, retiring in 2017. He primarily taught political science and economics and coached swimming and diving.

Last year, Leach opened Patriotic Excursions, which offers dolphin watching and military themed water tours aboard authentic U.S. Navy combat vessels.

“Patriotic Excursions is the perfect blend of my desire to educate and my experiences in the public safety realm,” Leach said in a recent article for The Virginian-Pilot’s Virginia Beach Beacon. “Also, it celebrates those who serve and enjoy what many of us in Hampton Roads take for granted.”
