Jay passed away on November 24, 2013, after a very long and valiant fight with cancer. He was surrounded by friends and family while watching the Chargers game against Kansas City, which the Chargers won. He was the son of John Halsey "Jack" Brickley, Colonel, USMC and Jean Henderson Brickley, both deceased.|
Jay was born in Vallejo, California on Feb. 15, 1949 and moved to Coronado CA, his freshman year of high school where he played on the basketball team. He attended several community colleges and graduated from San Diego State University.
Jay had a great kindness and love for life and an easy ability to make friends. He was a devoted father to his children, Ben and Briana. He was the type of man that would do whatever was needed of him, from being a great neighbor to the best dad ever.
