May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
My sincere condolences to Jay’s family.
My friend,Pookie and I are so very sorry and shocked that Jay died so young. We have fond memories of Jay back in the days working at the Cheshire theater. We all had so many laughs and stayed good friends while he was in CT.
I wish I had known he lived in Florida because I live in Naples and have for the past 20 years.
Pookie is still in CT.
