I am sorry for your loss, i only wish i could make it back. Jay will live on in mine and others memories. some of my personal favorites are the late night frisbee toss in the College parking lot, physics class, the stylish ert mobile a chevette i believe, and his ability and ease of getting along with everyone. there are no bad words to be said about Jay only sorrow in his passing and an honor in having known him and calling him “friend”

I was one of Jay’s HS classmates at St. C. I remember Jay as a very laidback and friendly person. He was everyone’s friend. I am very sorry to hear of his untimely passing. My condolences go out to everyone in his family including Molly, who I was also friends with in High School. I will pray for Jay and the entire family.

In Sympathy,

Greg Christakis

Jack, Judy and Molly,

I have such fond memories of your family and I am truly sorry for your loss. The last time I saw Jay was at his home in Columbus when Jerome was in town–too many years ago it seems now. He was so happy and welcoming and I remember spending a very pleasant afternoon there. You are some of the very best people I have had an opportunity to know and I glad you have each other through this difficult time.
