He went to school at Vina High School, Shoals Community College, Muscle Shoals, AL, UNA and the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, AL. Jay loved his family, the farm, all kinds of movies and comic books. He loved going to the Comic Book Conventions with his friends and his daughter, Bree. He loved to cook and experiment with spices. He also watched many shows on television. He would always help his mother cook Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, steaks, and other times she would call him to come eat with them. He enjoyed being with his friends and just hanging out and having fun. He had been working on building a pond for the farm which he enjoyed so much. He was very excited about stocking it with fish and building a pier for fishing. The pond will be named “Jay’s Pond” in his memory. He was a member of Cedar Creek Baptist Church since he was a young child. He was a simple person and stayed home most of the time. He was a good person and a wonderful, caring and loving, son, father, brother, uncle and friend.
