همیشه توی قلب من ماندگارید دایی عزیزم
یاد بزرگواری و متانت شما همیشه با من هست
هرچند بخت دیدار با شما رو نداشتم
You’ll be in my heart forever
Your memory is always with me
Although I wasn’t lucky to meet you!

I too, am saddened to hear this. Jay, will certainly be missed by his family and friends. As a fellow IEC member and friend, my prayer is that God will provide peace and comfort during this time and the months ahead for those of whom knew Jay best.

My heart broke upon hearing the sad news. I knew Jalil through his brother Javad and had the pleasure of playing soccer with him a few years back.

Jalil was indeed a true competitor on the field and genuinely humble off the field.

He will be greatly missed.

May God bless his soul and give his family patience and strength.

Respectfully,

Behrooz Varmeziar
