Clay was born Dec. 26, 1974, in Blue Earth, the son of David Mohr and Karen (Hamre) Bleess. He graduated from Blue Earth Area High School in 1993. He attended University of Wisconsin-River Falls and then transferred on to Mankato State University where he received his Master’s degree in English as a second language and Spanish.
Clay was given the opportunity to begin his teaching career at the University of Guadalajara, Mexico. He was always looking for ways to make a difference and did so by working at several camps across the country. After returning from Mexico, he came to Minnesota residing in Minneapolis. He loved the city life and this is where he called home. He enjoyed teaching non-English speaking adults and children over the years. Prior to his passing, he was employed with the Robbinsdale Elementary School System and cherished all the students and his colleagues immensely.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Everett and Marge Hamre, Clarence and Gertrude Mohr, Norbert and Helen Bleess, and Vivian Isaksen and his precious black lab Dora.
