Jaydee, along with Carly Rae Jepsen, joined Brian Melo in November, 2007, for a cross-Canada concert tour.
Jaydee's favourite song is "Unchained Melody" by the Righteous Brothers.
Jaydee's regular summer activities, if he weren't participating in Canadian Idol, would be hanging around a camp fire having sing-alongs, wakeboarding in the mornings, and just horsing around.
Up to the Top 4 in season 5 of Canadian Idol, when there was no bottom two/three, Jaydee was the only competitor never to be in the bottom two or three.
Jaydee relaxed during the hectic Canadian Idol season by reading the final book in the Harry Potter series; he enjoyed it and thought it was a great ending to the story.
According to Jaydee, his favorite TV show is The Simpsons, and his favorite movie is Forrest Gump.
Jaydee says that the one thing that he couldn't live without is his guitar.
Of all the musical mentors that appeared on season 5 of Canadian Idol, (Rihanna, Brian May and Roger Taylor of Queen, Kelly Clarkson), Jaydee was most excited about meeting Paul Anka, calling it a 'dream come true.'
If Jaydee could meet anyone, living or dead, he'd like to meet Elvis Presley. He says that Elvis is his biggest inspiration.
Jaydee's nickname is 'Jethro'.
Jaydee's personal motto is 'Preparation is the key to success.'

(on "Canadian Idol" as the musical guest, about how it feels to make an album)
Jaydee: It is probably one of the most gratifying processes you can ever go through, right from seeing something that you've been working on from scratch right to the finished CD in your hand, seeing it in stores, having people sing along... first time, show last night, I saw people singing along to my songs.
(advice to Idol hopefuls)
Jaydee: Be yourself and sing your heart out!
(after the first Top 22 elimination round)
Jaydee: Wednesday was my first elimination show and I wouldn't wish that experience on my worst enemy. For me it was the bitter taste of the harsh reality that 21 of us will experience by the end of this season.
Jaydee: I fully understand that for every 100 people that like you there are 200 who don't, so no worries.
(on how he stays relaxed during Canadian Idol)
Jaydee: I really love to read and it's reading that has really helped me stay calm and collected throughout the competition.
