Dear Nora,
I am sure those were great pioneer days in Chile when Panagra flew, when Grace opened new markets. My parents, Jim and Angela Raaf, had some great stories of the friendships made in those days. Our long telephone talks when you tried to reach my mother and I was in the USA brought back good memories. In the name of the Raaf family our sincere condolence. Keep up your good health and give me a call should you be back in Chile some day. Cariños miles, Angie Raaf (Jr.)

We were so sad to hear of Jay's passing. We have such great memories of Jay doting over his baseball boys. He taught them great life lessons, imparting his wisdom on baseball and other topics. I loved talking to Jay about Pan America and Braniff, since my dad was a Braniff pilot. He had such a great sense of humor.

We are honored and blessed to have Jay as a friend, and will miss him. Our hearts go out to the family, we will keep you in our prayers.
Jim and Kyla McGee

Nuestras sinceras condolencias a la familia Poulos por tan sentida pérdida. Nos une una larga y hermosa amistad con la familia Poulos-Campbell desde nuestro paso por la hermosa ciudad de Puerto Varas, donde vivimos los mejores años de nuestra vida y donde tuvimos la oportunidad de conocer a Jay y a Nora. Nos hacemos parte del dolor y la pena por su partida, con la convicción de que será recibido en el paraíso. Dios lo tenga en su santo reino.

Poulos family,

It was with great honor I coached with Jay in baseball. His grandson Alex and my son Rickie played together from age 5 to 14 years old. During those times Coach Jay was a strong supporter and excellent coach to the kids. He was also known as grandpa to the kids. he would bring snacks and juice for the kids in the bench area. i swear to this day that help us win a lot of games. Coach Jay also would be there at practice and taught the kids how to throw and catch. He always brought his 1920 stlye glove. It was amazing to watch him catch with that little glove. He didn't even faze him when a ball was thrown hard to him. He loved to warm up his grandson Alex. He also loved the fact that Alex and Rickie were the number 1 and 2 batter in the lineup. That went on for many years. He also kept his own notes in the dugout on opposing teams and our team. One game he told me about a player on the opposite team tend to hit singles up the middle most of the time so we shifted the infield and got the out and won the game. I looked at him and he nodded at me and that was such a great moment.

I am going to miss Coach Jay not just for baseball but for the man he was to his family. He cared so much for them. he loved all the kids on the baseball team and treated them like his own. But most of all he was so proud of Alex.

Coach Jay I love you and will always honor you by being there for people when they need help.

They got a great coach in heaven now.
