Paving Jay's Road to Recovery

$54,875 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 304 people in 13 months
Created February 19, 2018
On Friday, February 16, 2018, Jay was involved in a serious accident. During a seemingly routine landing, Jay’s airplane skidded of the runway and flipped onto its roof, trapping him inside. He was taken by ambulance to the ICU and underwent surgery on the same day. While the Jay we know and love is still very much here, he has lost the use of his legs due to a spinal cord injury and multiple spine fractures. He is still recovering in the ICU, and will continue to need extensive rehabilitation therapy once he is released.

We are hoping to raise money to help alleviate the financial burden so that Jay and his family/girlfriend will be able to focus solely on Jay’s road to recovery. Jay is a passionate and competitive person who excels at everything he sets his mind to. A brilliant engineer, fierce cyclocross competitor, and long-time pilot, Jay approaches life with fervor and ambition. While it promises to be a long journey, Jay’s perseverance and resilience, as well as the on-going support of all those who love him, will aide in his road to recovery.

Thank you so much to all of our donors for the support. I know that Jay, Rachel and Jay's family feel so lucky to be surrounded by so many people that love him. Tonight Jay's story will be featured on Fox31 between 9-10PM for those who are interested in seeing it. Jay remains in good spirits and has started to see a few visitors. Hopefully he will be moved to a rehab hospital by the end of the week. This is just the beginning of a very long journey, and all of the wonderful donations will go a long way in making the path to recovery a tiny bit easier for Jay and those that love him.
