At Princeton Jay majored in philosophy and religion, joined Colonial, and roomed with J. Soutter, J. Wintersteen, and D. Kirby. He rowed on the freshman crew and played club hockey.
After Princeton Jay joined Citibank, rising in the international division. He spent three years in Latin America, then was in New York for two, and then had a series of assignments abroad. In Venezuela, he met his Danish wife, Kirsten.
They married in 1967 in Venezuela; their two sons, John and David, were both born there. Assignments around the world included positions in Caracas, the Bahamas, Qatar, Greece, Sudan, Chile, Brazil, and London.
Jay always enjoyed the outdoors, books, music, and travel. Upon retirement he and Kirsten kept two residences, one in New York City and one in Shelter Island, where Jay was continually active in the management of the Shelter Island property owners association.
Very best wishes to wife Kirsten, sons John and David, and his grandchildren.
