Jay was a friend who understood loyalty. He was a family man who loved his daughters more than anything. Jay was a giant in the real estate community for over 16 years. In his free time he loved being out on his boat, the “Nauti Reeltor”. Jay loved fishing and the water was always his happy place, whether that was the Gulf of Mexico or Lake Michigan. He loved helping out in the community especially if it meant making a kids christmas or birthday dreams come true. Jay had an affinity for veterans and first responders which was demonstrated as a founder of the “Back The Blue And Green Organization”. Jay was of the Catholic Faith. The City of Cape Coral is a better city having had Jay as one of its civic leaders.
