He continues his efforts with DBG to this day as a board member, benefactor, thought leader, fundraiser, and a trusted legal advisor to the gym and its leaders.
Moss holds a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law and a Bachelor of Arts from Western Michigan University.
