I worked in same company as Jay for a while. Though I was way junior to Jay I was amazed at his ability to relate to us as human. When I was in trouble, I was counseled by friends to seek his advice and the gutso with which he went about seeking to help me made me ask him about what drove him to seek to help me especially when my case was bleak. He was a ver unassuming person never wanting to be the focus of attention. It took some sustained prodding from my side for him to gently reply that it was his religious faith and upbringing which had trained him to be what he was. I only replied to him I wish I could say that of me. Jay, I miss you. In these troubled times your calming influence is missed. But I am sure you don’t miss us now !! Since you are in a better place
