Jay was the brother everyone should have - he would bust your stones, and laugh at (and with you)... but he was always the first one there when you needed something. He was our property manager for 4 years, but he was much more than that. He helped us get involved in relief efforts during/after Irma, and always "had a guy" when we needed a vendor. I'm just disappointed we never got to go fishing or hunting together.
Michelle and I thank God that he was there to look out for us and our home until we could escape the Evil Empire that is California, and that he continued to be our friend after we got here. We miss you already Jay, and hope you never have to deal with temperatures below 70 degrees ever again. And since the Chargers left San Diego for Los Freaking Angeles, I might even have to adopt the Packers as my new football team as a tribute to you.
In the short time I've known Jay I will never forget you. You are a great guy and a funny person with a big heart. You are always good to me and Gabby and of course you loved Snoopy. I know all your close friends and family have a new angel on their shoulder to look after them. One day we will meet again.
I’ll never forget Jay. I worked with him at c21 Birchwood when he came to work there. He became an instant friend with a heart of Gold…I will NEVER forget Him either! An amazing Man whom did more for everyone than most people know….You will be missed Jay.. 💔❤️
Jay LaGace, the strongest teddy bear I’ve ever met! I remember when I first met you at BNI, you threatened me that if I didn’t do my business speech, that you’d cancel me out! I was so scared of you! Yet you became such a great friend.
❤ I love you and I’ve always cared about you. Prayers will always continue and now I’ll pray for your soul. RIP my friend. ❤
