When I was nominated to be class leader of our Academy Class (1997), I immediately nominated Jay because I wanted nothing to do with the job. He went on to be a great example of calm professionalism and represented our class with nobility. I always dreaded the day I would log onto ODMP.org and see someone I knew. I never dreamed it would be you, Jay. Rest in peace, my friend.
