Guestbook

  1. I was a good friend of Jay’s sister Margaret at St Mary’s School. I remember Margaret telling me that Jay had a crush on me, like any young boy w/ his older sister’s friend. While skating one day at Hubbard Park, there was Margaret with Jay just learning

  2. Jay will be missed by his friends from the Polish Knights Club. He always made us laugh with his sense of humor. His rendition of .What’s New Pussycat?. will live in my heart forever.

  3. My heart and prayers go to Jay’s family and friends during this difficult time. I have great memories hanging around with Jay when we were younger. A great guy who always made me laugh.
