Jay will be missed! Was a great brother to both Sigma Nu chapters at LSU and NC State. I will always remember our drive to New Orleans from Raleigh in the 70's. He loved fishing and included anyone and everyone. My thoughts and prayers are to all that knew him as he was a friend and brother to all!

One of the fastest lineman I ever saw. Jay was a great Raider. He was an inspiration to his classmates and those Raiders who followed after him. St Jean Baptiste de LaSalle pray for him.
