Dear Andy, Kathy and Patricia, Our family grieves for you on the loss of your precious son, Jay. We will always remember him as a member of the 'Pride of Pendleton' at PHS. He (and your family) were always so involved going to the games and contests and bringing laughter and fun along. Our thoughts and prayers are with you now as you remember his life and grieve his passing. May God be with you all, bringing comfort during this difficult time.

Our family grieves along with yours. Jay and Tim formed such a special bond in the early Clemson years and since then, nearly all our phone chats with our son included news and plans with yours. Best friends are hard to find and become an integral part of the fabric of our lives. We are grateful that Tim has years of memories to comfort him in the lonely times ahead but we wish he and Jay had had so much more time to enjoy together. Our hearts are broken for our boys...
We will remember Jay forever and smile that he came into our lives!!!
(((Hugs))) across the miles.

Jay was so funny, so bright, so unique. I adored him as my student at PHS. It's hard to know that funny, sweet, crazy soul is no longer here.
