About the Book

Triumph over Tragedy by Jay Fox, a popular entertainer known both in his home, Bermuda, as well as in the USA and internationally, is the personal story of his journey from a beginning as a mixed-blood child of a single mother of limited means in a prejudicial and insular society to a highly popular singer, songwriter, performer, and respected hotel manager. How he handled this challenging double life and how it affected his growing need for meaning in his life leads to a stormy personal situation and his relocation to Crossville, a small town in Tennessee.
When all was going well personally, with a family and a horse-training ranch, and professionally, with a busy schedule of performances and an enthusiastic following of loyal fans, tragedy struck when a wasp sting turned into an infectious disease, diagnosed as group-A streptococcal toxic shock syndrome, which cost him his leg and threatened his very life. His faith in God and the support of his family, friends, and fans have led him to a future he could never have anticipated.

About the Author

David (Jay) Fox built a substantial career in hotel management in Bermuda, his home. After dark, he became Jay Fox, the charismatic and unforgettable music professional. As a singer, songwriter, and interpreter of popular music, he performed and produced music, his own and that of other artists, and served as an international ambassador of song for Bermuda. His search for meaning and purpose in his life led him to become a minister of song and the gospel and a song evangelist in local churches and in concert in his new home in Tennessee. His life and career met a deadly challenge when a wasp sting led him to discover the lessons coma, near-death experience, and amputation can teach. Life has trained him in a hard school. This book is the result.
