Jay worked for me at AAMCO from 2014 until I sold it in 2020. He was there everyday, worked hard, got along with everyone and was just a joy to work with. I will miss Jay and know he is resting in Gods house right now. Rest in peace Jay.

Jay and especially his sister Nancy and their parents have been a part of my life as long as I can remember. Jay was the baby and seemed so much younger years ago. I remember him always working on cars or motorcycles and being quite the dare devil. Jay was always there for his siblings and children. He always worked hard and played hard. He leaves behind many who loved him and will be missed dearly. He will definitely live on through his children and grand children. It is a great loss here on earth and a great gain in heaven. Prayers for all his family during their time of need.

Papa Jay took me in every single weekend in high school. Every morning he made the most delicious breakfast and put up with so much girl shenanigans. He was so caring and loved his family so much. He will be greatly missed.
