Jay was the best boss I ever had. I worked at Kodak for 2 years before joining the police department. He was kind, considerate and understanding in each and every regard. A coach and a mentor to me. Even after leaving Kodak, we remained in touch. He told me there would always be a job for me if I wanted to come back. Truly a loyal friend. My deepest condolences to his family. Good luck on your journey Jay. Thank you for all you did for me.
Very Kind words and remembrances – Thank-You Chuck from the McCullough Family
