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.
