Jay Parker

Division President, CoolSys Light Commercial Solutions at CoolSys

President and founder, Jay Parker, started his HVAC career as a teen in 1982 working for his family business, Parker and Sons, as a field technician and salesman in Sun City, Arizona. In 1992 he became the General Manger, a position he held until March of 1996. In 1999, Jay started his own company called Legacy Air, working mostly for family and friends. In a broken down, faded brown van with no air-conditioning, Jay hit the streets of Phoenix early every day, handing out business cards and calling on prospective customers. Hard work and determination prevailed and after some time, he reached out and landed business with several multi-site customers. Through calculated risks, great customers and loyal employees, Jay grew the Legacy business into a market-leading and nationally recognized HVAC and refrigeration service company that now covers 12 western states, including Hawaii and Alaska, and is still growing. Jay and Legacy joined the CoolSys family of companies in 2017.
