I am in utter shock both on his passing and only discovering the same by accident. I have known Jay for the better part of half my life and we shared a great deal in the early part of our careers. As I write this I am dismayed.

I've lost both a mentor and friend. I'm still in shock that Jay is no longer with us and can only remember all he has meant to me and my family. For someone who had achieved so much in such a short time. He was that blessed one who saw through the double reflections of two cultures and brought them together in one. All my thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

My condolences to Jagroop's family. I had the pleasure of knowing Jagroop for many years through our work as lawyers practicing in Madera County. He was kind, considerate, hard working and very professional. He was also always full of energy. He was a good friend. He will be missed.

Was a sad day for me today to learn that such a wonderful High School friend passed away. Jagroop was a very good friend to my brother who passed away 2 years ago. I last saw Jagroop in 1997 when I went to see him for legal advise. I carry a saddness in my heart today for this loss. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to all his family.
