Jay was not only the most important person every two weeks at the Journal Company, but he was a kind and pleasant colleague to all who knew and worked with him. While he was a beloved family man at home, he was also a valued member of the Journal/Sentinel family.

Marilyn, Dan and Kim: I was so sorry to learn of Jay’s passing today. He was one of my cousins I always looked forward to seeing. We had a lot of great times at his house with Aunt Florence and Uncle Eddie. We will keep your family in our prayers and May he rest in peace. ( I will always remember my childhood Christmas Eve’s when they would show up with some of my favorite childhood presents).

Our sincerest condolences to you, Marilyn, Danny & Kim. We laughed and laughed at Jay’s stories. I’ll never forget “Corn on the bone.” What a guy!

Hearing about Jay's loss brings back so many memories of family gatherings with my special cousin. He was always my Dad's favorite Nephew for so many reasons. They shared a unique bond with each other. Jay will be missed but his name will continue to come up in many future conversations. Marilyn, Dan, and Kim I feel your sense of emptiness now that he is no longer physically here but I know that you will remember him with great love always. Bonnie
