Fascinated with technology since he was 3 years old, Jonathan-Paul Kaye attended the New York Institute of Technology in Old Westbury, New York, as an undergraduate student and received a Bachelor of Technology in electrical engineering in 1983. Shortly thereafter, he was hired by Daton T. Brown in Bohemia, New York, as an electrical engineering supervisor, a role he fulfilled until 1984. Between 1984 and 1989, Mr. Kaye served in the same capacity for Grumman Aircraft in Bethpage, New York, before departing from the renowned company to join Long Island Lighting Company and Key Span Energy in Hicksville, New York, as an electrical engineering supervisor. Mr. Kaye resigned from Long Island Lighting Company and Key Span Energy in 2001.
In the present day, Mr. Kaye has served as a design electrical engineer for Public Service Enterprise Group (PSEG) Long Island since 1989, the largest provider of gas and electric services in the tristate area. Concurrent to this role, he has also served as the president and owner of Uninterruptable Traffic Control Systems, Inc., in Woodbury, New York, since 1995. Through his company, he is notable for creating a backup traffic light, which he cites as his greatest career achievement.
In addition, Mr. Kaye holds a patent for uninterruptable traffic controls, which is a system that can be utilized as a primary or backup unit capable of operating with a 12-volt, 24-volt, 48-volt, 120-volt or 240-volt AC or DC power supply. Impressively, it is capable of operating on solar power or can be used as a standalone system.
To remain abreast of developments in the ever-changing fields of technology and engineering, Mr. Kaye has maintained membership with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers since 1989, and currently sits on the Insulated Cables and Conductors Committee. Looking toward the future, he intends to work further toward his goals and introduce new ideas to the industry.
