I was a close friend of J's, at the age of 15 I cleaned his apartment which was across the street from the church, then cleaned his house when I was newly married. I loved the convertible rides, and his steak meals he would fix us after I finished cleaning. Jay was a very happy and pleasant person to be around. My parents would make homemade ice cream a lot and J would happily helped us eat it. He will be missed greatly, he was a big part of my growing up years.
