He was born on April 16, 1960 to Winifred (Mundis) Fickes and the late James Fickes. He was a 1978 graduate of York Vocational Technical School. Jay was employed at PP&L Bruner Island as a journeyman mechanic for 39 years. He was a car and motorcycle enthusiast, a loyal Philadelphia Eagles fan, and an avid member of Hawks Gunning Club and Victory Athletic Association. He was dedicated to serving The United Way as a recruiter for several decades as well a volunteer at the Catholic Harvest Food Pantry. Some of his pastimes included coaching basketball for his children's teams at St. Joseph's School, auto auctions, playing the lottery, and casino trips.

Jay will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 33 years, Connie, his son Michael Jay Fickes and wife Em Martin Fickes, daughter Jacqueline (Fickes) Merrifield, husband Jordan and his precious granddaughter, Maren Jaye. Along with his family he is survived by his mother, siblings and their spouses: Scott and Vicky Fickes, Beth and Bob Drawbaugh, Marty and Susan Fickes, sister-in-law Suzanne Fickes, sister and brother-in-law Judy and Scott Arnold, and many special nieces and nephews.
