Jay was a hard-working man all his life. He worked from the bottom up to the top. He was very dedicated and never did anything half fast, always had a knack to make sure everything was done correctly the first time. He spent all his life working to achieve his goals. He never worked simply for the money, he worked to build the network of friendships along the way.
Jay was a dedicated and devoted father. He loved his sons and daughter with all his heart. He worked so hard to instill a lot of himself into them. He always would drag them along to go bowling, camping, riding and it was always bring your kid to work day for Jay. When they were younger Jay would have them sit in the garage so he could tinker on his bikes and explain everything he was doing along the way and possibly hold the flashlight still. Jay also had his separate things he loved to do with each of them. Jacob and Jay were always going on Sunday night bowling, they were even in a league together for four years. They even went so far as to have custom bowing equipment just to get away and talking shit to the other teams. Jay was teaching Dylan all the ropes for the company. They went to all the job sites together so one day Dylan could take over the family business it was Jays hope for him. They recently went and reposed a car together. Jay loved his daddy daughter dates with Haley, it was always a late brunch at a small diner in Taylorsville. He would always go to Haleys house to also teach her his recipes and just sit around for hours. He loved spending time with his grandchildren, Zephyr, Kyurem and Ember. Jay loved chasing them around and even just riding around the back yard on a four-wheeler with them. The favorite dish all his kids loved was his homemade chili. Jay used to make Sunday breakfast for his kids when they were younger. He always had to go all out, and it would become a four-course meal by the end.
