Jay was a sports enthusiast playing baseball and football in his adolescence. In adulthood, he fell in love with golf and enjoyed playing some of the most prestigious courses in the country. Jay had a beaming smile that warmed everyone’s heart he encountered. He was charismatic, intelligent, witty, giving, and compassionate with a love for life. He mentored many and was always willing to lend a listening ear.
