Jay is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Janie Castro Martinez; his sons, Daniel Martinez and David Martinez and wife Pat; his grandchildren,

Monica Veliz, Janella Mendez, and Austin Jacob Jimenez; his great-grandchildren, Krislyn Veliz, Ariah Leal, and Nathaniel Leal; and numerous nieces and nephews.
