    I remember a lot of good times playing golf, softball and other outdoor activities with Jay. The family poker games we had growing up were always a blast. Jay loved to burn you in a card game we called in- between. I'll miss you cuz!

    I remember when Jay was a teenager he protected my cousin Lora, my sisters and I. He had his leg in a cast and was hoping on one foot standing up to a guy trying to do us harm.

    It was a joy to work with Jay at the Horseshoe. He could be very entertaining during our breaks, but always had a sympathetic ear. We all truly miss him. May Jay Rest In Peace, free from the pain and illness.
