He proudly served his country in the U.S. Army and was a life member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion. Jay worked as a warehouse supervisor at the Floresville Electric Light & Power System. He loved to go fishing and was an avid Dallas Cowboys fan. He was sure to be watching them on television during football season. In his younger days, he enjoyed skiing.

Jay was preceded in death by his parents; his brothers, Alfredo, Elpidio, and Rogelio Martinez; his sister, Lilly Zuniga; and his grandson, Juan Jose “JJ” Martinez.

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.
