Jay was a wonderful man. We enjoying interacting with him through his maintenance work at Northtown Village. He will be missed by us all!
I am very sorry for your loss.
I've left little notes on the memorial sites and Jay's Facebook as I've been reading what people have written. On this site there is a heading that states "What made Jay so unique and special"..well...EVERYTHING I never met some as kind as this man was or patient and hoping some of this has rubbed off on me. Jay loved life, loved people, children animals...always willing to drop anything and help a friend. Many times that friend was me. I have been so blessed to have known this man. There will never be anyone like him in my life again and I can say that for certain.
You are sorely missed, Jay. I am so sorry that you cannot be with us. I will always remember your last words to me: "I love you, Mom!" What a precious treasure you have always been to me and to our entire family. You always did your best and you did everything you could. Both Don and I have always thought you were the greatest. You were a fine son-in-law from the beginning until the end. I love you, Son!
So sorry for your loss. I went to school with Jay, he was such a nice person and a good friend to all. He will truly be missed by all of his classmates. Tammy Votis Stroik
Herb,Tina,Lisa I am so sorry for your loss,Jay is back in God's arms where he will watch over all of you,with Pete. You are all in my prayers. God Bless
Jay was the nicest kid in our class. I hadn't seen Jay in a few years, but when I did he always was glad to see me. My sympathies to Jay's family.
Jay never had a bad thing to say to anyone when we were in school! He had a special gift and enjoyed life to the fullest! My thoughts and prayers to his mom, dad, sister and other family members! He will be missed! RIP Jay!
Jay was a very special person & gifted. He always had a smile and was a great person to know and work with. He never complained and just did his work. I think the funniest story I heard about him, was just recently when his Dad Herb was telling us about the deer camera's for the reunion and some of the pictures they took. Leave it to Jay. He will be missed.
