Jay will be sorely missed, but we know his spirt will live on in through all the contributions he has made to ensuring our community remains a boating paradise. Good bye, dear friend.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Jay always sat behind me in the City Council Meetings and we would often have great conversations about the development of our waterfront. The pump out boat and the Alligator cut through were always topics on his list. A champion for our waterfront!! I have missed him.
