J. J. Armes with President George W. Bush and Vice President Cheney.

Jay J. Armes was born and raised in El Paso. He lost both hands when a older friend brought a box of railroad explosives to his home. His hands were replaced by two alloy steel prosthesis, that he mastered. Mr. Armes went on to become a International Private Investigator, Chief Deputy Constable for El Paso County, Law Enforcement Instructor for El Paso County, and Director of Security for a number of major manufacturing firms abroad.

He is considered one of the best private investigators, receiving awards and recognition as "the man who has made the greatest contribution to the investigative profession." His clients included Elvis Presley, Howard Hughes, Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando, whose son, Christian, was rescued by Armes from kidnappers. Supposedly he has never lost a case, and has even succeeded where the FBI and CIA have failed.
He also made movies and was the model for a comic book character.
