Kessler of Millerton, Pennsylvania has been pulling
20 years. He competes in the 3300 class primarily in Pennsylvania and New York
but on occasion has ventured out to Michigan where he has twice won arguably the
most prestigious pull in the country at the Michigan Great Lakes International.
Jay pays the bills by logging like many other horsepullers. He lists the spring
pull in Syracuse as his favorite pull to compete in. Some of his stiffest
competition each season comes from his father Ira who also competes in many
pulls throughout New York and Pennsylvania. Jay claims his most important
accomplishment in pulling has been to stay married for 22 years.
In the picture Jay is pulling Bud &
Duke in Harpursville, NY. earlier this year.
