“I was initially impressed with Jaye when I met him 10 years ago at Sheridan Broadcasting. During our 2 year span Jaye showed his dedication and is eternally upbeat. His ability to calm angry or frustrated customers is unparalleled, and it is because of his excellence in this area that I repeatedly would recommend him to any position of the sort. James multitasks effectively and is able to handle a high-volume workload.” July 6, 2011

Hello Mr. Hill,
I am a student at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and I sat in on your presentation last week. I believe I expressed my gratitude afterwards (medium height, brown spiky hair, white guy photo student, lol) but I wanted to take an extra moment and thank you. I myself am recently digging out of the creative and motivational hole that is Winter so your presentation was timed perfectly. I also wanted to thank you on behalf of the other students that were present. As another student, they'll often let me know when they're having trouble with motivation and creativity. Considering as how I'm no "Motivational Speaker" I simply do my best to hear them out and light a fire under their butt if they need it.
Having worked in the professional world ( or to be more accurate, "dipping my toe into the professional world" ) I know all too well the importance of staying motivated and on target. I find myself with free time and I am reminded that every moment I am not taking a picture, every moment I am not researching art, or every moment I am not working on my networking, my competition is. That being said, I am currently building my base of contacts and resources which I know will be paramount to my success after and even leading up to graduation. So, in summation sir, thank you very much for coming to my school and speaking and if you ever need a photographer in the Pittsburgh area ( or know someone that does ) please feel free to contact me. Thank you for your time and I hope all is well. Stay safe on your travels and God bless you.
To Whom It May Concern:
The Art Institute welcomed guest speaker Jaye Hill to the school on May 4, 2010. He gave a presentation to a group of student on success. His presentation was very much enlightened, as it was meaningful to my personal life and me. Jaye Hill is a wonderful guest speaker and was a joy to have at our school. I believe that he would be very beneficial to more people at the school if they took the time to come to one of his presentations. I really appreciate everything he has done and said in his presentation. It made me laugh and think a lot about my current situation. I feel that because of him I can make a better attempt at pursuing my goals and do what I need to do to be successful. I believe that Jaye Hill would make a bigger impact on more students if you invited him back. I think the student will actually appreciate the things he has to say and will take some of the points in his presentation in to consideration and apply it to their own lives as I have already started to. I would really appreciate it if you take the time to consider bringing Jaye Hill to the school again. I think he would be a great influence to anyone who feels really discourage or lost, as I know I was.

With his passion and spirit, James Hill has been a great inspiration to youth leaders
and urban youth across the nation. I am personally encouraged by his strength
and courage to release what he believes and receives from the power of God
at work in his life. --- Gerald Bell
Jaye has been a motivating factor to me and my family through his tireless
self expression and occasional tears of praise and rejoice. As a member of my
church family he has always been an inspiration, leader and role model for adults by
extending himself to others especially in reaching out and engaging young people.
He's been a Godsend in helping my stepson transition from child to the
accountable stage of young manhood. Always armed with a smile, a hug and a
kind word, Jaye is an integral component in my personal village.When called upon
he serves with passion and a transparent sense of loyalty and devotion.
Jaye is truly a motivator to me.

We all need someone in our life who is an encourager, and who will be candid with
how things are seen from outside of our own perspective. Min. James Hill is that person.
He is the person that will tell you what GOD has allowed him to see in you. He will then help
you build up or strip away what is needed.
Your Brother in CHRIST.
