Jory grew up in the suburbs of Seattle and found a passion for music and the saxophone while attending Mountlake Terrace High School under the direction of Darin Faul. While attending MTHS Jory had the opportunity to attend jazz festivals all over the country and the Pacific Northwest, including the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival and the Viking Jazz Festival where he was awarded numerous soloist awards, and the Essentially Ellington Jazz Festival where he was awarded the award for Most Outstanding Alto Saxophone Soloist. During this time Jory travelled with the MTHS Jazz Ensemble 1 as a featured ensemble at both the Vienne Jazz Festival in France, and the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland.
Jory plays and performs with some of the best musicians in the city, while also leading a variety of ensembles focusing on both original music and creative interpretations of everything from Carlos Jobim, to Kanye West.
