Just ran across some pics of Jay on Facebook and took a stroll down memory lane. Jay was a rock star in our tiny town. I still miss him, after all these years. He brought such joy everywhere. The picture of Son
Jake and his mom Diann said it all. What a husband and dad he must have been.

I currently live in Jays house. I never met him but think about him all the time. The Corcoran door knocker is still on the front door and the memorial tree is beautiful in the front lawn, I hear the house has changed a lot since he lived in it, but his presence is all around and we will take care of this house just as he did. Rest in peace.

I was a neighbor of Jays sister Marcia. I will never forget what she went thru on that heartbreaking day.Not only did she lose her loving brother but her beautiful daughters lost a loving uncle.To all of Jays family, you are in our thoughts today and every 9/11 for the rest of our lives.

I still remember the last time I talked to Jay.He and I were in the control room on board the APL Thailand and he was very excited about having some off time.I was also on the APL terminal when word came about his death, such a sad day. Needless to say his death has made me a better father,sibling,and friend;by NEVER taking anything or anyone for granted.My god continue to bless his family,friends and MEBA union brothers

Thinking of Sandy (my college roomate and friend)and her brother, Jay, and his family, as the 10th anniversary is upon us. We will never forget what he and others sacraficed, but more importantly we will allow all of the people affected in this tragic day to be a part of us. We felt your pain then, and we continue to feel your pain as you live on, forever changed.

I just want to tell my friend Sandy and her family that we think of you all often and share in your loss. I remember Jay as the cherished brother of all those sisters, a loving family that shared so much joy and good will. I know Jay also left his own wife and children, and they are in our thoughts today.

Jay was perhaps one of the most decent people I have ever encountered. I miss him, as most assuredly all who knew him do. I think him often and will remember him always.

One of my students is working on a project about September 11. The memory of you brings a smile to my face.

They are gone but not forgotten.

I will not rest until the real truth comes to light. The memory of you and your fellow victims shall be upheld. You did not die in vain.

Post your memorial thoughts:

Share your feelings and memories of grief and sadness concerning the 9-11-2001 attack, or of positive memories.  If you knew this person, help us to build a small 'bio' of the person and share with us something about his/her life:

  • what kind of person he/she was, 
  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you, 
  • or other things about him/her might be especially encouraging for other people.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy. The site is strictly for memorial mentions of those who passed away in the tragedy, not of other people who have passed away.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!

9-11Heroes.us is a personal effort, not a business, nor is the site dedicated to any specific person or persons. We will not post negative comments. Moreover, 9-11Heroes.us reserves the right to choose which comments to post and also to edit the comments for spelling, punctuation, grammar, or edit comments that are unkind or offensive in some manner. We are maintaining this site with our own money and time. We try to keep the advertisements to a minimum and we try to make them as unobtrusive as possible. The revenue goes back to maintaining this site.

Thank you for your understanding in these matters.
