Dear Dr & Mrs. Kessler. I’m at a loss of words to express how deeply sorry I am for you and your family. So sad and so young. May she Rest In Peace. I will keep her in my prayers. My best, Barbara Colucci
I am so sorry to hear of Jay’s passing, and deeply saddened. She was in a few of my classmates and was bright, thoughtful, and definitely not afraid to express her opinions and share her knowledge. I learned a lot from her, and I was enjoying getting to know a new acquaintance. I will truly miss having her as a classmate, and will keep her in my thoughts.
I am so sorry to hear that Jay has passed. I worked with her on a research project at MSU, and from my time working with her, I could tell she truly had an open mind and open heart. As well, she was very ambitious and motivated to exceed in school and her future endeavors. Sending my condolences to her family and friends.
I had the pleasure of meeting Jay for the first time when she came to seek my advisement as to whether our MA program would be a good fit with her future career plans. I was immediately impressed with her intelligence and motivation. She did join our program and was met with success,, lauded by her instructors. It was only very recently that I was working with Jay to help her adjust her courses to accommodate her changing work schedule. I was so saddened to learn of her passing and I am sorry that I will not have the chance to continue to support her progress in our program. A bright light, taken too soon. I am deeply sorry for your loss and, on behalf of our program, I extend our sympathy and condolences to your family. -Tina Zottoli, PhD

I had the pleasure of having "Jay" in my graduate class at MSU this past semester. She stood out as a very bright and dedicated student and a special person with a wonderful sense of humor and great compassion for others. I am deeply saddened by her loss and will miss the opportunity to continue to support her in her professional development. Having a daughter of my own, I can't imagine your grief but I can appreciate the magnitude of your loss. You have my most sincere condolences.
