    Don’t know where to start. I’ll call this Adventures with Jay. Christmas-eve tree trimming, burglar-proofing the apartment with thumb tacks, Vacation to Connecticut, angelic as an altar boy, ornery as an Eagles ball boy, EMT training while hunting, and the backup on a hose line while battling a building Fire in Marcus Hook. The world is a better place for having Jay the son, the brother, the father, the friend, the nephew, the EMT. Ang, Sis and Charlie, Jay will live on in Hearts.

    What can I say this is a shock. It seems like just yesterday you sat the crew room table helping me with homework in high school. You were a great friend to me over the years and I will miss you terribly! I will fondly remember the calls we ran together and our long talks in the engine bay. Hopefully you finally have found the peace you deserve! R.I.P big guy

    Sad to hear of the passing of such a good soul. Always kind and thoughtful, always willing to lend a hand to help out, no matter what he had going on his life he had an ear to ear smile and never let it get in the way of his good samaritan deeds. May his family and friends find comfort in the memories they hold of Jay and may the tears that flow be happy tears as he would not want you to be sad , he would want you to be gathering, smiling and remembering the good times as you celebrate his life. Keeping his family in prayer as they deal with this difficult time.
