Jay found the love of his life, Reatta Wright Black. She was a grade school sweetheart and best friend his entire life. They reconnected a few years ago and found that their bond and connection was still as strong today as it was when they were just kids in grade school. He loved her with all his heart and soul. He is survived by the other half that made him whole.
