Jay worked at a towing company and was very proud of the job he did there, as were we all. He has always been a very hard worker who loved the outdoors including camping, fishing, and riding dirt bikes. Jay had an amazing mind and huge ideas when it came to building his company, Emerald.
Jay is survived by his mom Shelley and stepfather Bill; sister Jordyn Lagace; his beloved boys, Carter, Nathan and Dylon Lagace which he was so proud of; and his fiancé, Victoria Goddie. Jay is also survived by his uncle Brad and aunt Debbie Champagne, aunt Michelle Champagne, uncle Keith Brady and his auntie Mary Jane (Jo) Brady with whom he shared a very special bond; cousins, Myles, Samantha, Kendra, Jaimee, Stephanie and Brittany; as well as his best friend Adam.
