Who is Jay Riemersma?

Many people know Jay Riemersma as a Zeeland High School graduate who played NFL football for nine years.  Now people are beginning to know Jay Riemersma as a candidate for the 2nd Congressional Seat in the US House of Representatives.  Sports Illustrated and Wikipedia will tell you all about his football career, but does that REALLY show who Jay is?  My earliest memory of Jay is from the early 1980's while we were students at New Groningen Elementary school in Holland Township.  He always seemed like a really nice guy who happened to be good at sports.   I sat down with Jay earlier this week to learn how stories from his parents and grandparents impacted his life throughout his career.
