Jay was employed as a CNC machine operator at Millennium Machine and Tool in Newton for nearly ten years. He was smart and artistic and was great with his hands. He would laugh and describe himself as a jack of all trades and a master of none. He had of love of the outdoors and nature. You could find him on any given day, sharing time with the Lord, with a fishing pole in hand. He loved to fish, hunt and shoot guns. Music and concerts were another favorite of Jays’.

His family and friends would describe him as a great man, with a very good heart and caring personality. He would give the shirt off his back to help someone out.
