I want Dr. Jay's family to know what a profound impact he had on my life. Dr. Jay was my Dermatologist from 1967-1971 while I was a student in a very competitive pre-med program at UC San Diego. I had severe generalized psoriasis. It was the most stressful time in my life. Dr. Jay understood that stress and how it affected my skin disorder. As such, he didn't just treat my skin disease, he compassionately treated me as a person. With his support, I graduated UCSD and was accepted to medical school. I never really fully appreciated the depth of his kindness, compassion and empathy until I completed medical school and entered into practice in 1978. Over the years I would fondly reflect on how he cared for me and be inspired to treat my patients in the same way. His positive impact on my career is now carried forward as I currently have 2 sons in medical school whom I regularly speak to about the importance of empathy and compassion in patient care. I am so grateful to have known Dr. Jay. He was an inspiration and role model in my life. I send my heartfelt condolences and pray that God blesses the extended Jay family.

With deep admiration,

RIP Dr. Jay, It will never be the same visiting your farm knowing you're only watching from above. You keep and eye on those trees from up there and I'll do the same down here. I am honored to have known you and been able to help you further your vision for the land and environment.

Dr. Burton Jay was my former Chief of Service at Kaiser Permanente from 9/2/75 until he retired, one thing I learned while working for Dr. Jay was to roll with the punches in the heavy volume of everyday flow while at Kaiser, I was given all the support while holding down my position as the Senior Service Representative, in 1985 when we started on Computers Dr. Jay had asked me to cover the Senior position for his Department since the Allergy and Dermatology Departments were the first to start on the system Dr. Jay was like a Marine held down is post as assigned he was seeing approximately nearly 50-60 patients daily including walk-ins which had to be seen no one was ever penalized for asking for care by Dr. Jay no one. He was the Man of Compassion which today I have learned to feel the same way towards others each day now I will know that Dr. Jay is a Angel in Heaven watching down over his family, friends from the Compassion Area in Heaven which he will probably run into my Grandmother Gertude Payne now I can look up with a smile and want to say Thank You for hiring me in 1975 until I was Blessed to retired in 2009 RIP Dr. Burton Jay I miss you already.

Dr Jay was my father's dermatologist. My dad was diagnosed with melanoma. Dr Jay cared lovingly for him...sitting at his bedside in the hospital many times - sometimes just talking...sometimes holding his hand. My dad loved Dr Jay. He was an incredible support in my father's care. We lost my dad, Harold Carpenter, to melanoma. I know Dr Jay felt the loss as much as we did. Dr was a wonderful doctor. Thank you Dr Jay. RIP.

I have known Burt and Susan for over 30 years. We shared many intermission conversations at San Diego Opera, and Burt could always be counted on for an informed and eloquent assessment of the performance, always colored with wit and humor. We often met up at out-of-town opera productions and enjoyed comparing notes about the singers. On one occasion, after a very lengthy performance of Messaien's "St. Francis" in San Francisco, I asked Burt if he would like to see it again. His reply: "Once is enough!" His kindness, intelligence and friendship will be greatly missed.
