Welcome to The Jazz!

This site is dedicated to every Jazz fan who can never have enough up-to-date Jazz news. As well as every Jazz fan who wished that there was a simple, single, thorough resource to gather and share news, articles, analysis, and opinions about our beloved Jazz.

The site news and content will be provided by me, Jay Clouser, and site partner Ben Gregory. As well as an occasional contributor. For a short bio on us:

Jay Clouser


I was born in Layton, UT and grew up there until I was 18 when I moved to Cedar City, UT to attend Southern Utah University. I played Junior Jazz all growing up, and have loved the Jazz since I was old enough to fall in love with the sport of basketball. I practiced dunking since 7th grade on my 7-foot adjustable hoop in my backyard. As a senior in high school, at 6′ tall I finally dunked a 10′ hoop. For proof: White men CAN jump. I am beginning to dabble in the waters of internet marketing, and would like to move to the beach and retire within a year or so. 🙂 But no matter where I live, I will always make time for the Jazz. [Mill-WHO?]

Ben Gregory


I was born in Bellevue, Washington, but was raised for the majority of my life in Kaysville, Utah. I have been a Jazz fan since my first year of playing Jr. Jazz, which was in first grade. I am still bitter about “his greatness” Air Jordan PUSHING off of Russell so long ago. I am currently living in Cedar City, Utah attending Southern Utah University where I am pursuing an Athletic Training Degree. My beautiful and amazing wife, Jessica is working on her Nursing Degree at the same college. [Mill-SAP!!!]

Our goal is to get you any and all Jazz news as fast as possible, while keeping all news as accurate as possible. We will also strive to keep all of our editorial posts based on facts, and to explain any stance we may take with sound reasoning, whereas to just say “The Lakers suck because of lack of skill and they’re morons” wouldn’t be a very compelling argument.

We would also like to be able to provide conversation-provoking topics (NOT ARGUMENT TOPICS). We ask that all comments remain polite, and no name-calling, please – we graduated first grade a while ago. Please provide reasons when stating your difference of opinions.

Please add us to your favorites, so you can check back often. If you have any ideas for topics of discussion, for the site, or any news we haven’t picked up on yet, feel free to email us at [email protected]
