He was Superintendent of Hernando Golf and Racquet Club and a member of the Golf Course Superintendent Association of America. Jay was a member of Fairhaven Baptist Church in Olive Branch. He was one who loved being there for his family and friends. The highlight of his life was spending time with his sons. They enjoyed riding in his car, going to car shows and traveling to the beach and mountains. He loved the Lord in every way. From the beginning, Jay always was one to help another in any way he could. While in high school, Jay achieved numerous honors in golf and placed second in the 5A State Championship. After high school, he attended Mississippi State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in agronomy and turf maintenance. He was a big Bulldog fan! Jay was very talented with art and music and self-taught himself to play the guitar and enjoyed it as a past-time hobby. In the last few years, he found a love for cars and street racing with The Street Predatorz of Memphis. Jay’s life was cut way too short but he will be remembered by all who knew and loved him and especially by his boys and family.
