Apart from being the first one in the office, Jay didn't do much as Chief Justice, in large part because there wasn't much of anything to do.

A smart man, and a valuable public servant in other walks of life, however.

The Supreme Court didn't have any cases in those days, so he is hard to rate. No output.

He was a first rate diplomat however. Remember Jay's Treaty?

A Founding Father, John Jay was the first Chief Justice, yet did not add prestige to the High Court. Ambitious as he was, Jay preferred to be Governor of New York (which he considered a greater position). Jay did not hold the Court in high esteem. And Court historians generally have not held him in high esteem.
