    Even though I didn’t know you as long as all the fellas from the “Eastside” We still had some fun times together! All the times jamming our rides with stereo’s worth more than our cars, rolling with the “posse” and all the crazy stuff we used to do. Sorry we didn’t get to hang as much lately as our lives got busier. I will sure cherish the times we did spend together, going to miss you little buddy Jay. Hope we’ll see each other again. Love ya!!

    Rest in peace Jay. I’ll never forget the time you had my back outside at the Room. Had you not been there, I don’t know what would’ve happened. That was the night that I knew you were my friend, and I will miss you.

    Hugs and Prayers for the family. Jay was a wonderful person. Jay was always a wonderful and kind person to work around. He sure loved playing Texas Hold’em. His eyes would light up when he would tell me about his latest tournament. You are in God’s hands now and out of pain.

    I’m so glad I had the chance to have Jay in my life. We had some good times while we worked at Hallmark. He loved his Metallica back in the day. Jay was a great person. Blessings to all those he touched.
