Jayson DaBoi is a bootblack, spazzed out Stitch puppy, and auction helper extraordinaire. He loves to help and will pimp out his skills for any worthy Leather cause. Jayson is not even a little bit afraid of hard work and welcomes new challenges across his dynamics with gusto.
Friends know this New Mexico native as a loyal, shenanigan-inspiring and fun-loving Leather Boi. While his woof and his kilt bring all the boots to the yard, his heart and spirituality keeps them there. His soul soars in the sacred space created when he is working with leather. Be it boots, vests, chaps or a tightly laced corset, bringing the
boobs…LEATHER, bringing the leather back to life fills his cup and the cups of so many around him!!
International Ms. Bootblack 2010, Jayson served with the belief that boots create a spiritual foundation of the Leather Walk and that everyone should have a solid, beautiful, and polished foundation.
Jayson is married to a beautiful girl that somehow manipulated the time-space continuum with her wiley ways to get Jayson to be still long enough to see past the insatiable flirt, the boisterous bootblack, and the driven Leatherboy. All that was left was the heart of her champion and they have both had tunnel vision ever since.
Jayson’s nights are full of love, laughter, education and support at local, regional, and national events. Most importantly—he is enjoying life no matter what and celebrating ohana.
Ohana is family: no one gets left behind or FORGOTTEN.
