  1. I am very sorry to hear it, and my sympathy on the loss of your friend. Jay was in my Revson Fellowship cohort at Columbia University, and he was truly a vocal and endearing presence — Tom Robbins describes Jay well.

    My thoughts are with his family and friends.

  2. Jay was simply the best. I am sorry that I didn’t learn of his death until today. When I was starting out at the Supportive Housing Network of New York (originally called the SRO Providers Group), Jay took me under his wing and taught me much about coalition building, housing advocacy and NYC politics. I’ll never forget his great sense of humor, generosity and passion for making the world a better place.

    Thanks, Jay, for mentoring me and countless others, and for bringing justice and hope to so many New Yorkers. RIP, my friend.
