I found out of your passing long after the fact, but you will live on in my heart. Thank you for 30 years of care.
I lived with Dr. Ach's family when I came to the United States in 1938 when I was 11 years old. I came from Germany and lived with he and his family. I am saddened to hear of Jay's death. It sounds like he was a very special person and doctor. What a difference he made in this world! My condolences to his wife and family. With warm wishes, Ellen Kasper Kisslinger
Dr. Ach was my doctor in 1988 and he was such a sweet and kind doctor. I wish all doctors had his bedside manner, He will be truly missed. My prayers are with you and your family.

I just learned of Jay's passing. Needless to say, I all but cried after talking to his wife, two boys and daughter-in-law. I knew his wife, Jo, well; I had only met Jay once but was bowled over with his wonderful outlook and humor. I feel very embarrassed that I didn't realize he had died over 1 month ago. Jay, you will be sorely missed and Jo, I've said it to you before - please call if you need anything. I think by now you know how much I adore you. Dave Hakes
Dr. Ach literally saved my life when I was just 6 years old. He had just started into practice with Dr. Ralph Cunningham, in Reading. I needed surgery that, at that time, had never been performed in Cincinnati. When other doctors were not sure what to do, Dr. Ach contacted several out of town colleagues and after consultation I had the surgery - and I'm still here nearly 60 yrs later! That was in the 1950's and he remained our family physician until his retirement. For several years, while my Grandmother was still alive, he tended to 4 generations of our family. When my Father passed away in December of '03, Dr. Ach attended Dad's visitation on crutches from having knee surgery. He was a remarkable man, extremely intelligent, insightful, and way ahead of his time. Over the years he did so much for us, from house calls to taking phone calls in the middle of the night. I am also grateful to him for introducing our family to Dr. Christopher Sweeney who is carrying on Dr. Ach's fine tradition of amazing medicine. We owe so much gratitude to Dr. Ach and will never forget his kindness, understanding, wit, and his strict and straightforward manner of giving orders - from his heart.
Jay Ach was a neighbor and good friend,Jo and I were good friends also. He treated my three children as well as myself and we really missed him we moved to Atlanta. He was a wonderful,caring man and will be sorely missed by many people. Take care Jo,my prayers are with you.
Dr Ach was our family doctor for about 20 years. I'll never forget when my daughter was broadsided by another car at Galbraith and Vine St. The noise of the crash brought Dr Ach running out of his office to tend our daughter. His office at that time was on the west side of Vine St just north of Galbraith. What a great man. We loved him.
Joanna Ach-Jay had a wonderful fulfilling life. I am so glad my family(Kevin and Kristin) had the chance to know him. It was so kind that day when Jay helped Kevin with the badly skinned arm wound. That told me alot about Jay. I know he loved helping people and provided a great service to the community. Continued Blessings to you--Joan (Gentry)Wooten. Please let us know if you need anything.
Great Dr. I wish more doctors had his bedside manners. He touched so many lives and sure to be missed by many
When I lived in Wyoming Dr. Ach was not only my doctor for many years but also my neighbor. He is the only doctor that I have called in the middle of the night due to pain (from gall stones) and he is the only doctor who has made a house call in the middle of the night to administer pain meds in my hour of need. He was a wonderful caregiver and a true friend to our family.
Dr Ach was my grandmother's physician (Ella Henderson)and on her 100th birthday he and his nurse at the time, Carol Adams came to the nursing home for her birthday. I will always remember this. This was in the early 80's
The Bollmer family appreciated the dedication and loving care that Dr. Ach gaave to our family. I'm so very sorry for your loss Dr. Ach will be missed. Ron Bollmer & Family
I started going to Dr Ach as a young woman in my 20's. I stayed with him until he retired---now in my 60's, I am still going to the practice he started.
He was caring and kind--once he visited my young son and me at home after office hours, because we had a raging flu and he was worried about us. Those kindnesses are never forgotten. Thanks for taking care of us, Dr Ach.
I had the privelege of being one of Dr. Ach's patients for many years beginning in the 70's. What a wonderful clinician - approached medicine with tremendous common sense, and provided humor as a bonus! A wonderful man all the way around. May he rest in peace.
Dr. Ach was my grand parents Dr., delivered my mother and me.. treated us all with nothing but kindness and compassion. I am very sorry for your loss.
So sorry to here about your Dad...our deepest sympathies. Molli & Steve Diebold
There could never be another like Dr.Ach. A great physican and wonderful teacher.
This saddens my husband and myself. Along with treating you he always made you laugh...guess laughter is the best medicine. He was the best, and a wonderful example of what every physician should strive to be. We just can't say enough wonderful things about him as a man and physician. RIP Dr. Ach and keep them smiling.
