  • Good High School/football friend

    I was very sad to hear of Jay's death many years ago. I was Jay's friend in High School and on the football team. He was a great guy. I visited his name on the "WALL" a number of times.

  • Still fond memories of Jay

    Posted on 12/26/15 - by Brian D Brian.defrang@aol.com
    I went to school with Jay starting in Middle School. I always will think of him and his buddy Johnny Lipke and their teasing back and forth with the teachers - always in good natured ways. I grieved when I heard of Jay's passing and want to thank him for the memories and his sacrifice.

  • What a great guy.

    Posted on 11/11/15 - by Ted Rollheiser
    Jay was one of the five on our west coast road trip in 1966, the summer after we graduated from high school. Everyone liked Jay. He and I had some great laughs and good times on that trip and working together at Amurol Sugarless Gum Factory in Naperville. Just an all around great guy.

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
