Was saddened to hear the passing of Jay....my longtime friend. I have so many stories that included Jay.....all were funny. He loved to be with his family, cook BBQ (the best) and make folks happy and to laugh. I will always cherish the fond memories of Jay. The family should take comfort knowing that Jay suffers no more and is now in God's loving care. Loving thoughts, condolences and prayers are with the family. God bless.

Words cannot express how broken my heart is. Jay was not only a wonderful friend, he was like a member of our family. There was nothing Jay wouldn’t do for anyone. His heart was as big as the ocean and kindness unmeasurable. A big part of my life left on June 3. Jay you will be sorely missed! I love you.
