Jay was a very special person, I bowled on his Thursday night team with him for many years. He knew everyone who's lived in New Lenox for a long time, and he was loved by all. I will miss him and cherish the memories forever. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dee and his kids and grandchildren. Christine and Steve Hunt

Jay was one of the greatest guys I ever had the pleasure of knowing and was saddened to hear of his passing. Lisa and I worked with Jay for many years at Solar and he and I side by side on the presses. A truly brilliant man. May God bless his soul!

Dear Dee and Family,

I'm so sorry to hear of Jay's passing. I had the privilege of working with Jay for many years at Solar. He spoke often of his family, especially his grandkids, and his face would light up when asked how they were doing. Jay was loved and respected by all who were lucky enough to know him. My heart goes out to you and your family and I hope you find comfort in the cherished memories of a truly wonderful man.
