Previous enterprises include working as a wholesale dealer for vehicles, powersports equipment and as a licensed ticket broker for events nationwide. Born with a love of fishing, he obtained a 100 Ton Captains License from the USCG and started his own commercial fishing operation. His success was showcased by a catch rate for Giant Bluefin Tuna that annually placed top 15% of the Northeast.

While pursuing fishing, Jamie also turned his love of aviation into a career. With a rating as an Airline Transport Pilot, he operated internationally under part 91/121/135.
