Co-Founder & Lead Investigator of Oregon Paranormal
As a SoCal native, I got my start in the early ’90s chasing haunts and local legends in my hometown of Whittier, California. Spending many nights staked out at abandoned homes with sordid pasts, I eventually made my way to other notorious locations in and around the city of angels. In 1994 I relocated to Clackamas, Oregon where I continued to study paranormal phenomena, but in the form of books by such notables as William Roll, Loyd Auerbach, Hanz Holzer and Barry Taff.
In January of 2009 I co-founded Oregon Paranormal with my good friend Scott Riedel. Our purpose was not only to help move the field forward by testing theories and developing new investigative techniques. It was also about helping families and individuals who had been dealt a sometimes terrifying hand. Since forming Oregon Paranormal I’ve conducted a number of investigations between residential, commercial, and historical sites, including joint investigations with others teams and independent researchers throughout the Pacific Northwest. My continued mission is to accurately research, investigate and document claims of the paranormal, and to someday unlock the mystery of life after death.

Director of Historical Research of Oregon Paranormal
Jay Verburg began his unexpected paranormal journey as one of the two Greenhorn miners on SyFy’s Ghost Mine. With a passion for the Old West, he has been casually exploring ghost towns and abandoned locations, striving to discover historically relevant areas for the past 15 years. His fascination with history and the gold that still runs through the mountains of Eastern Oregon unexpectedly led him to the small town of Sumpter. It was there, just few years later, he would find himself not only working as a hard rock miner, but witnessing events that have led him to an entirely new journey — paranormal research.
