Saturday, December 21, 2019I knew Jay from MCI and then we had the chance to play a bit of golf together after he retired. He was highly regarded at MCI by all and provided a calming influence in the face of any challenge. I always enjoyed his perspective whether it was at work or on the golf course. Remember when he told me how excited he was about his trips with Margaret and the sights and time together. And then his perspective on why being a grandparent was so wonderful. He discussed the pros and cons of living in Florida with me at some point in his retirement, but once he had grandchildren, Jay's response was why would I ever want to leave them. Jay was a terrific person to everyone he touched....I have thought about him every day since I heard the news. Rest in peace Jay.

Wednesday, December 18, 2019I'm so sorry to hear of Jay's illness and passing. I worked for Jay in the late 90s and early 2000s. Played golf with him a number of times after that and bumped into him at Dominion games. He was always positive and supportive, a steady leader, and very friendly and caring. He was smart to retire when he did and enjoy those years with his wife and family. Many condolences to the Slocum family and our prayers are with you and Jay. Rest in peace, Jay.

Saturday, December 14, 2019I met Jay our freshman year at Babson College. We became fast friends and over the years maintained contact in spite of my "left coast" location. Jay was always positive and upbeat with a touch of sarcasm. In the post script to our last email a few weeks ago he mentioned how fondly he remembered a Thanksgiving we spent together our sophomore year with my large and loud Italian family in Connecticut. That "P.S." from Jay was the essence of his spirit. ..while he was feeling lousy in his last days he took the time to share a memory we both cherished. I will miss him. Mike Giangreco

Saturday, December 14, 2019My younger brother Jay has been a man of action, both in sports, in business, and especially in service to his family and friends. We moved several times, due to our father's job changes, living in Braintree, Massachusetts for the first six years of his life, then eight years in Norwell, MA, nearly a year in Greenhills, Ohio, three years in Stamford, Connecticut, and finally in Annandale, Virginia. I remember playing basketball and baseball with our peers, and some scorching sessions of table tennis with Jay and our parents. We had wonderful summers on Cape Cod in the early 60's, and family vacations with our parents in Gettysburg, Washington DC, Florida, and along the East Coast. In later years, after we'd gone our separate ways to start our own families, we periodically got together to visit, and to enjoy family reunions in Branson, Myrtle Beach, Amelia Island (our parents' 50th wedding anniversary) and Hilton Head Island. Jay hosted us with boat rides on the Chesapeake,and we stayed several times in the home that he and Pam had built in Sterling, VA. My brother demonstrated a real aptitude for finance, and was able to provide his family with a pleasant lifestyle, and many happy times together. He is sorely missed by his loving family and the friends that he made through the years. Godspeed, brother Jay Slocum.
