(No surprise there, LOL) Neuquan, is Mr. Football too. I think he finally found his voice and yes Neuquan is keeping his grades up. He's a thinker like you. Asks lots of questions like you did too. Moma is good too she turned 75 years young. Dwayne started his own business too, and he has another grandson, yep Jamar did it again Drew Jamar Williams so thats JJ and DJ, if he has a 3rd it will probably be CJ, keep the family tradition alive, LOL.

Well Jay, you have another 17 year old. Neuquan turned 17 on June 1st. All your boys are so very handsome and doing well. Neuquan and Jalik both play football and DaShaun designs his own t-shirts. Not bad huh, 2 in sports and one business man. Did you ever think it would turn out like this? Me either, Jay. I miss you a whole bunch but I know I'll see you again someday. May take another 30 to 40 years but then again, you never know what God's plan is. Keep resting in peace knowing God has your children well taken care of. Love you big bro, always with a hug You baby Sis

Whoever knew Jerrold knew his heart was pure, kind, and caring. He was a man of character, not too many people I can say were really & truly my friend. But I can tell you he was, we lost contact over the years once he relocated back down South. But I never stopped thinking about how he was doing. Life is so short. I am so blessed to have had met, and known him. Carol and Dwayne how are you ? It hurts my heart to know, I won't see his face,smile,voice,jokes and his pranks !! He was very intelligent and a great communicator. And I know he LOVED his children very very much. And WE LOVED HIM. 1/27/11

I'm grateful for the many memories that have been expressed about my brother. Periodically you will see some comments edited because I want to make sure that this site stays a memorial to Jerrold. He was many things to many people: a son, a brother, an uncle, a father, a trucker,a husband at one time and a great friend. But what he was above all the titles he may have held; was a man who loved a whole lot of people; especially his friends and family. Jay had a heart for people and was a very compassionate person. There's a lot you DON'T know about my brother and will probably never know, but if you knew his love and compassion for his friends and family then you've known all you'll ever need to know about Jay. May God bless each of you who has shared your love and a piece of Jay for us to continue to remember him.

Well said Carol! Jerrold went above and beyond the definition of a friend. I know this first hand. Love you Jay! May you Rest In Power!

Well Jay another year has come and gone. There are still people finding out that you've gone. Big brother you impacted a LOT of lives.I thank God that we talked often laughed much and loved always. I've been thinking about me, you and Dwayne. It's not many families who have siblings who are close, like each other, get along and have many of the same friends who we stayed close to pretty much all our lives. We were not only related by blood but by friendship, that's one of the greatest gifts God has given us. I miss you like crazy but one year less on earth is one year closer to seeing you again. Is it possible to be happy and sad all at once? Love is the message is still rocking on your page because its the message you brought to everyone. You live on in our hearts Jay.....

Wow two years already????? You are greatly missed. I miss the visits when you were come home and stop by and we would have our deep conversations. One of the most important conversations we had was about what you wanted out of life and what yours plans were going to be in the near future, how you were going to make time out for your children. The most thing I remember is that you were coming to terms of making yourself happy. I miss those times when we laughed and the time that I met you for the first time when you were working in my building in new york and how I yes me introduced you to your wife and watched your children grow... You would be so proud of them if you could see them now, but I believe that you are watching out for them and BROTHER you will always be in my heart. R I P

It was two years ago this month that I received an email while at work from Jay’s sister informing me of his passing. I looked at the computer screen and couldn’t believe what I was reading. I was truly devastated. You see, Jay was my friend and friends like Jay are hard to come by. He was always genuinely proud of my achievements i.e. a promotion, going back to school, a better paying job; and saddened when I was laid off (2x’s in 5 years). He always rooted for me from the road and he always had words of encouragement and loads of positivity. He was there to lend an ear when I needed someone to talk to just to blow off some steam. When you were Jay’s friend you were his friend for life! I miss you, Jay, and I am proud to have called you my friend. We thought of you with love today but that is nothing new We thought about you yesterday and the day before that too We think of you in silence. We often speak your name All we have are memories and your picture in a frame Your memory is our keepsake with which we'll never part God has you in his keeping We have you in our hearts Forever in my heart, Lisa

24 more days and it will be 2 years; haven't heard your voice or laughter: haven't seen your face... but I see you when I look at your children, I hear your voice as I talk to them and I experience your laughter when they laugh. Hard to believe that Cambria has already had 2 reunions and more people are being reached and we're reconnecting even more. Jervis & Kessler both lost their dads. I'll be praying for them. Jamar's going to be a daddy so the family is growing. Jay it gets overwhelming missing you & sometimes I cry, but I know that God knew best. Thank you for being my big brother, Master Plan rocks on and on....

Hey Jay, Neuquan made his grade. He looked so handsome. He was dressed so sharp, reminded me of you. All the boys miss you so much. You have no idea how much they looked up to you. They're going to make you proud. Big bro, I miss you so much too. Your birthday was a happy day but when it passes and realizing your not here, its so hard big bro. BUT I know God has a plan in all this. It wasn't by accident that you went to that game in Charlotte, it was by accident that Jamar is now playing for them, its not by accident that the boys are driven to succeed; it by divine providence. From your heart straight to God's ears. . Darnell the master barber, he's doing good. Oh yeah, Jamar is going to be a daddy. Mom and Dwayne are fine and so is the rest of the family. Keep watching over us Jay. We love you......

Jay you would be so proud, Jalik was invited to basketball camp in Charlotte this summer. He's been doing good in school and following your dream with the hoops. I'm proud of all three boys. Jamar got traded to Carolina Panthers. Funny that the only professional football game you went to was between the bear and the Panthers. Jamar went from the Bears to the Panthers. I think its a sign of good things to come. thanks for watching over us big bro. I miss you sooooo much. Love you long time XOXOXO Your baby sis Cy

I look forward to sharing with anyone who listens the story of my big brother Jay. You were one of God's finest masterpieces, truly one of a kind. Here's to you big brother, may you rest in the peace. Give Pop a big hug from me and let him know I love and miss him. In God's time I will see you gents again, but not too soon. I have work to do the Lord first.

Growing up, Halloween was such a fun time. By the time we got home we had enough candy to have a sugar rush till spring. Thank God we grew up when candy didn't have to be inspected and neighbors looked out for one another... And the costumes were too funny. Whatever we were JAy, Dwayne and I had a blast with all our friends in the heights..... Good times, great memories and a lifetime of friendships. thinking of you today Jay, love your sis

A brothers love is more like a father, thats why I've always called him "Unk". I'm his driver. So many years of teaching me all the things in life, how to rap, how to hussle, how to move through a crowd of vultures.... my love cant be explained. But for Jay ALWAYS and FOREVER lasting. Those he introduced me to in the last years of bringing the family together was his only focus and goal, and I will always love him for that. When God calls for me I will see Jay again.... my brother, my father, my uncle.... 2 I have orders.... I plan to carry them out.... one

My funny, sweet, smiling cousin, Jerrold that is what i will always remember about you. You always found a joke in everything!! You kept us laughing, Though we didn't talk everyday, or see each other that often, when we did get together it was magical. I love and miss you sooooooo very much cuz. I will always in my heart, remember our last road trip together to Fla. to spend Christmas with your mom. We were 4 cars deep on that trip & we met up wit u and your boys in South of the Border, and that was when the fun began for me!!! It was the bomb, never a boring moment wit Jerrold ya'll. I wound up sleeping in your SUV with u and the boys. Man Jerrold was calling the hogs so loud, i had to get out. We laughed at that!!!! LAMAO!!!! I will miss your laugh,jokes,u being concern about what was happening in our family. All of it, I love u Jerrold Always. U were my King of Comedy!!!

It's been a year big brother without hearing your voice, your laugh or seeing your smile. (it's very strange for me) I don't look at trucks with a heavy heart. Now I think about all you taught me about trucks and how good you were at what you did. I still cry sometimes, but that's because I miss you so much. But I know Jay I will see you again... I know you're with the King and I don't mean Elvis or MJ (LOL) I love you Jerrold, until we meet again....

Let's all take a moment of silence to remember Jay. Reflect on all those precious memories and what he has meant to us. Remember his 3 boys who were the center of his world, who he loved without measure. We loved him but God loved him best, took him on to his eternal rest. A moment of silence please for a hero has fallen among us, who touched us with kindness and left us with his love and compassion. Truckin' ain't the same no more, jawbreaker has gone on. Gone but not forgotten, taken but never far from our hearts. A moment of silence please for Jay. I love you big brother and that will never change.

Man I just saw this on FB, and my heart is sadden. It saddens for myself and his family. Because I know we all have our own fond memories of Jarrold. Mine go as far back as 4th grade when him and I was in Ms Foster class and Mr. Roth in the 5th grade. We traveled all the way to Bayside HS. The most thing I remembered about Jarrold, was that he always had a smile on his face. I don't think I ever saw him mad or upset. He was one cool brother. Always kept other laughing around him. My Brother, My Man. I also remember the last time I saw Jarrold. It was at the last school reunion we had back in 98 at tomacino. We had fun then too.

Just before most of our basketball games at Bayside HS, J usually swallowed about a tablespoon of honey. He said it helped him keep his energy up during the game, and it helped him jump higher. I remember one game when I jumped for an offensive rebound... my wrist was over the rim as I was about to grab the ball for a tap-dunk. Before I knew it, J came from my left side, soaring way higher, grabbed the ball with his right hand, and slammed it with his left. It was mad-sick. The crowd went wild. He apologized for snatching the rebound before me, his teammate. He said he "didn't see me down there". I was cool with that, but from that day forward, I had honey in my gym bag, and took some before every game.

It seems like yeterday they told me you had gone. Never for me to touch you, hug you, laugh with you, tell you I love you. Like a record I play over and over our memories, our laughter, our conversations; missing you with each passing day. They say the hardest loss is losing I parent. I beg to differ. Losing dad was so hard, he's usually the first hero you have ever known. But a big brother, wow, that's just as bad. It's like batman and superman gone..... But though you may not be here in the flesh, I know you are always with me. Your laugh, our conversations, the memories; they are more precious than diamonds or rubies or the mighty dollar. They are the gifts that continually give strength and comfort to my soul. I love you big brother, I love you Pop and I always will. Gone from your body, but not forgotten in my heart. Rest In Peace...
