    1. I’m totally shocked! I’ve known Jay for many years. I lived in Amarillo for 34 years, moving to Dallas in 1995. I did Jay’s income taxes for several years including the first year or so when he moved back to Amarillo. Hadn’t heard from him in the past year or so, and based upon what I knew about his finances, I assumed he didn’t have to file taxes. Had no idea he was ill. Would love to know more about the situation.

      My deepest sympathy.

  1. So sorry to see this. I had the opportunity to work with Jay at Cabot in the late 80’s. Prayers for the family.
