May the Lord be with your family during this time of mourning and grief. You were a positive influence on my life during my high school years and while being a member of the Valencia Club in the 1970s. Thank you for your kindness, generosity and service to New Orleans youth of yesteryear.

Dana, Kim, Lane and Carter, I am so sorry that I was not with you all yesterday!! I only just read about the memorial a few minutes ago, or I certainly would have been there!! I have such wonderful memories of you dad from our youth on General Diaz!! The first of which was of him popping my first loose tooth on Halloween, LOL! It was so sad to have to move away from each other when they build I-610 . . . but the memories and friendships will be with us forever! I hope if you need anything, you will give me a call!

Much love to you all!!

Jay Molony was a one in a million great guy. Besides all his other accomplisments, he organized the State championship Valencia basketball team coached by Ed "Skeets" Tuohy who went on to coach championship teams at Newman. Danielle and I will always remember the Valencia Ski trip to Sierra Blanca, New Mexico. Carter, remember the fun and laughs. Jay had unlimited energy that was contagious. We will sadly miss him. Our prayers are for Carter and his family and all who loved him.

I am sorry to miss the opportunity to see the family at SYC today due to work. Jay was such a wonderful mentor and friend to us Romaine girls. He was also a dear friend to our father. The whole Maloney family meant so much to us all growing up. May the amazing positive impact Jay had on so many comfort you all.
Much love, Emily Romaine

To Carter and Jay's family I offer my deep sympathy and prayers for what must certainly be concluding a long parting these last years. Jay was always such a bright light, it's hard to think of him any other way than on and imaginative.

Some of my own family have suggested that in my time as a Valencia member and later staff at the Country Property, Jay must have been my second father. In fact, and with deep respect for my own true father, I never thought of Jay as a father figure. Jay was to me more like the older brother confidently leading me into the next oddball adventure, as likely to go sideways as rightways, but worth the journey. To know Jay, his way was to be your friend and fellow explorer of life and growing up, I saw this over and over with hundreds of kids. Jay could be a teenager, he could be 6 if it was pool time for the 6 year olds. He would dress up with a coat and tie for dance night like all the members would do, but the kid in his eyes always beamed through. Next morning he's carefree in cutoffs, sockless topsiders and something that used to be a workshirt. I drink 50/50 ice tea and lemonade to this day.

Arranging or brainstorming activities and day events or trips, Jay would say to me to "go organize this" or that, and half the time I had no idea what to do, and wasn't sure he did either. It didn't matter, something was going to happen and the people, the kids, the energy made it work. I've carried this lesson forward in life, in business and spirit.

Certainly Jay taught many of us to be the best person we could be, and to not let uncertainty block the path of trying things. Jay inspired me to be more fearless, to be more compassionate, to be more patient and to enjoy whatever time with friends is available. I can't imagine how he did this for so many years, so many kids, so many smiles. I'll intend to go star gazing on the next clear night and look for Jay to twinkle back.

I am most grateful for my days at Valencia. I was so saddened to learn of Mr. Molony's illness and passing. He was such a wonderful mentor to so many youth in New Orleans.

My years at Valencia were some of my fondest memories growing up in New Orleans. Mr. Molony"Jay" was such a positive and caring influence on us all. Jay was not only a personal friend of my parents but he took me under his wing and personally taught me how to swim.I am truly grateful to have known him.My thoughts and prayers are with Carter and the family .Jay,we will miss you always.

Long before Valencia, Jay would pick up a bunch of us, pre-teens, in his woodie station wagon named "Vitamin" and entertain and teach us at his very infomal summer day camp. What adventures we had. Later at "Ice Breakers" with Mrs. Manget and finally as we grew up into the age for Valencia our youth was shaped, very well, by Jay Malony and his crew.
My thoughts go out to Carter and his whole family.
New Orleanians of our generation are much better off for having known this wonderful man!
Rest in Peace Jay.

Valencia was a huge part of my high school years and more. Also worked for D&A installing playground equip. Best job was getting paid to drive a group of "kids" to the country property and take them water skiing all day.

Many of my fondest memories are of the times I spent at Valencia and Jay was a large part of those experiences. We remained friends even after many years and I will miss him dearly. The city of New Orleans may never see his like again.
