For more than 15 years Jay worked at the Transition House—hosting tea parties for clients, making people laugh with his wit, and warmly greeting new volunteers. Always happy to see a friend—or to meet a new friend—Jay would drop everything for a nice chat.
He will be remembered for always being kind and caring, his big heart and big smile, and for always wanting to be part of the party.
Jay passed away at the Mission Hospice on January 25 after a long battle with cancer and declining health. In his last days he was surrounded by friends and colleagues from both Bruce House and the Mission, where he has also worked.
We will share information on services when plans have been finalised. Meanwhile please share your memories of Jay with the Bruce House family below
