I am so sorry about your Loss, but if you think about it, it is a gain in heaven he was a great person that put up with a lot of people that just did not understand him, I have lost 3 people I have went to school with in 3 years, ( I have been out of school for 3 years ) My last friend was a young man by the name of Josh Hendrix. It took his loss to show me how important life really is, God bless you and Jay will be in My Prayers.

I did not know Jay. However, my best friend Melissa George spoke of him often and kept me updated on his condition. Melissa is a wonderful person and I always thought that for Jay to have touched her that much he must have been wonderful as well. May God bless and keep you.

In honor of Jay:

I am at a loss in trying to understand the concept that Jay is gone. I keep thinking that I can still hear his laugh (ah-hah, ah-hah) and I can still picture him modeling his new straight-from-Europe fashion items for us. I can't comprehend the fact that I will never get to hear his outrageous stories or listen to his grand plans for the future. I miss going on camping trips together, putting on plays in GT together, and attempting to walk home from the last day of middle school together. When I think about Jay, I don't think about someone who has passed, but someone who is a very present friend to me and will always be in my heart.

Looking around at all of the people at the funeral and hearing all of his accomplishments read and seeing all of his design work displayed, I wondered what Jay would have thought of it all. I wondered if he would do anything different or hang around with any different people if he could go back and live life over again. Then I realized what life (and death) are really all about.

Life is more than just the people you meet, though they help shape your life. It is more than the accomplishments you make, though they give you pride. It is even more than the things you do, though they help you to give back to the world. When you get down to it, life is about who you are.

Jay was a talented individual who never stopped dreaming of the future.

Jay was one of those people who never let difficulties in life (though he had plenty) get him down.

Jay was always honest.

Jay had enough character and confidence to brush off insults and teasing and to not take them to heart.

Jay was a son and brother who, though full of mischeviousness and a little attitude, cared a great deal about his family and would do anything for them.

Jay was exciting, unique, and always the life of any group.

Jay was a great friend.

Jay was going to become the acclaimed "Yamez de la Fonti" whom we would all be able to say we once knew 20 years from now.

More than anything, Jay was himself, and that's what I'll remember most about him.

With love,

Emily Barron
