Both Jay and Jamie Vroom are graduates of the University of Illinois, Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences (ACES) school. Both were raised on integrated crop and livestock farms in North Central Illinois and both remain actively engaged in those family farming operations which are recognized as "Century Farms" by the State of Illinois.

Jay Vroom today is actively working with three consultancy groups -The Context Network (strategic global business consulting practice); DC Legislative and Regulatory Services (Washington government affairs practice); and FLM Harvest (communications and marketing practice).
