"Juggernaut" Jay Misuk is a Canadian college quizbowl player who played for years at McMaster. As of 2020, he plays some tournaments for Toronto. For certain years, he was the second-best active player in Canada, after Jordan Palmer, who he travelled to tournaments with. Jay was known as McMaster's 'Quizbowl Dictator', mostly because he could never hold an official position as a graduate student, but was in charge more often than anyone else. He has worked as a substitute teacher, karate instructor, and thrift store employee.

Jay has coached the quiz team at Westmount Secondary School. He has worked a lot for the Reach for the Top organization, writing questions and running events.

Jay spent many years as a part-time grad student at Toronto, where his student status made him eligible to play in some but not all tournaments. For certain tournaments, he led a team of older players called "Toronto J," whose members were all grad students at Toronto but were kept distinct from the school's actual quiz club.

In 2022, Jay started an Ed.D. at the University of Western Ontario and continues to play tournaments.
