Burger, Jay - Batavia  
Jay Burger Born: November 20, 1991 Died: June 25, 2016 Jay Burger, 24, of Batavia, Illinois passed away June 25, 2016 surrounded by his loving family who adored him so. Jay was born November 20, 1991 in Houston, Texas to proud parents Kelly Jo Golson and James Burger. After moving to Batavia his freshman year in high school, he graduated from Batavia High School in 2010. Jay graduated from the University of Iowa with a Bachelor degree in Marketing in 2014. At Iowa, Jay was an active member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity - a place he met an amazing group of young men that he cherished as friends. In addition to advertising internships with HY Connect in Chicago, Jay also worked briefly as a brand specialist with the Chicago Bulls. He had a natural gift in the world of marketing and was anxiously awaiting the time his health would allow him to move to a full-time career. From a very young age - Jay was gifted with the ability to make personal connections with almost anyone he came into contact with. From a toddler taking the dance floor with strangers to a young child attending work functions with his Mom to a young teen willing to attend sports camps and join teams where he knew no one to that 14 year-old who moved from Texas to Illinois and was comfortable riding his bike up and down the street to introduce himself to other kids in the neighborhood - underscored by his quick wit, vast intellect and intense loyalty, his personality was magnetizing. This gift only blossomed as he entered manhood - evidenced by his amazing large circle of friends and his early successes in his brief career. Jay was also one of the most loyal and knowledgeable sports enthusiast of all times. The Dallas Mavericks, Dirk Nowitzki specifically, the Denver Broncos and the Chicago Blackhawks were undoubtedly on the top of his list. Over the last 20 months Jay had the incredible opportunity to personally meet and spend time with his heroes Dirk and Marian Hossa and in February he traveled to San Francisco to see his Broncos win the Super Bowl. In recent years Jay had also developed a fondness for the Chicago Bulls and the Chicago Cubs. After attending the Cubs game with friends on June 17th - he was so honored just days ago when watching the Cubs on television and he saw Jason Heyward wearing his yellow "Pray for Jay" bracelet. Regardless of the sport or the team - Jay was a wealth of knowledge on any stat you may be searching. Jay was equally gifted as an athlete. His love as a child focused on hockey and basketball. The Phi Delta Theta intramural basketball team was serious business to Jay and he even delayed a much needed repair on his shoulder as not to miss his senior year season. In recent years Jay's activities expanded to snowboarding and golf. Despite his failing health these last two years - he continued to find the strength to make it to the slopes and the greens. Just recently Jay had the opportunity to attend the Masters with his dear friend and adoring Mima and Granddaddy. Jay was such a well-rounded young man - handsome, intelligent, loyal and outgoing. Above all else, family and friends always came first for Jay. His commitment to those he loved was felt deeply by all of us who adored him and those strong bonds of love will remain unbroken for an eternity. He had a zest for life and over the last 20 months as he battled Ewing's Sarcoma - he did so with as a true warrior, fighting with every ounce of strength to his last breathe. Jay is survived by his mother Kelly Jo Golson, his step-father of more than 20 years Mark Golson, his loving siblings Luke and Sophie Golson and his beloved grandparents Joe and Rae-Jean Young and Tom Golson. He is also survived by his father James Burger and his wife Beth Burger and siblings Mehgan, Matthew and Peyton "Nico" Burger and grandparents Royce and Betty Burger and Bob and Marjorie Adams. Jay was greeted at the gates of Heaven by his grandmother Sarah Golson and his great grandparents. Memorials may be directed in Jay"s name to the Advocate Charitable Foundation, 3075 Highland Parkway, Suite 600, Downers Grove, IL 60515 where a special fund is being created, "Jay's Hope", to offer support and grants to other young adults fighting this horrible disease. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, June 30 at the First Baptist Church of Geneva located at 2300 South Street, Geneva, Illinois 60134. A celebration of Jay"s life will follow beginning at 4:00 p.m. at the Eagle Brook Country Club located at 2288 Fargo Blvd., Geneva, Illinois 60134. We look forward to coming together in this setting to share our stories, laughter and tears. Go rest high on that mountain our beloved Jay - while you will continue to light our world here - we so look forward to the day we are reunited once again.
