Jay, John W.
John W. Jay – Newspaper Unknown – January 1888 – The Sudden Death of a Prominent Official - His Term of Office and Lease of Life Expire Almost Instantaneously - A General Expression of Grief and Sympathy for the Bereaved Relatives - On Tuesday morning at about eleven o'clock all that was mortal of Hon. John W. Jay was laid to rest in the cemetery at this place.  His death was unexpected and cast a gloom of sadness over the entire county.  The immediate cause of Mr. Jay's death was inflammation of the bowels brought on, it is supposed by the late hours and exposure attendant upon the campaign of last fall, from the effects of which he never thoroughly recovered. His untimely death leaves a young and accomplished woman a widow, two bright and winsome boys orphans to battle with a merciless, cold and selfish world, an aged father and mother, and a host of true and loyal friends who will long mourn for and miss a companionship that even time cannot supplant.  He was a man beloved by all, from the highest to the lowest and his familiar figure and voice was known, not only in every town and hamlet in Bent County, but in nearly every section of Colorado. John W. Jay was the youngest son of ex-County Judge J. H. Jay and was born at Paola, Ogle County, Illinois on the 12th day of December, 1853, therefore being twenty-eight days over thirty-four years of age at the time of his death.  In 1857 his parents came to Colorado and located near Denver, where John received his first rudiments of education.  From here he was given a two years' course at Manhattan (Kan.) College.  From there he returned to Colorado and finished his college course at Golden.  In 1876 he began the study of law in the office of General Sam Brown in Denver, mastering that honorable profession in a very satisfactory way for one so young, being admitted to the bar in Pueblo County about six years ago.  During John W. Jay's life in Denver he was prominent in business and social circles and was at one time foreman of a volunteer fire company in that city.  Nine years ago, Mr. Jay came to Bent County, (his parents having preceded him several years) and located in this city.  On December 7, 1879, he was married to Ada M., eldest daughter of Hon. R. M. Moore.  Since locating here John has occupied a number of responsible and trustworthy positions, being the retiring County Clerk at the time of his death.  For six months during John B. Carter's term as clerk, Mr. Jay was his deputy.  After Mr. Carter's death, Mr. Jay conducted the office in the interest of the widow and family of John B. Carter, at the end of which time he was made County Clerk by appointment from the commissioners. The death was very sudden and therefore expected only by those at his bedside.  He was taken ill last Saturday and was forced to desist in his labors and go to his home.  Nothing serious was thought until Sunday forenoon when Dr. Dow was dispatched for.  Mr. Jay was taken slightly worse about 1 o'clock Monday morning.  A tonic was given him, but it was too late, as the grim destroyer--death--had claimed his own.  He died at 1:10. The funeral occurred at the M. E. Church and the beautiful service of the Episcopal Church was conducted by the Rev. Henry Forrester.  The remains were escorted from the residence to the church and from there to the cemetery by Uniform Rank, K. of P., Lodge No. 28, of La Junta, of which John was a prominent member, and under whose direction the last sad funeral rites were said and the body of John W. Jay lowered into the fathomless beyond.  Peace be to his ashes. Mrs. Jay, her two little fatherless boys and the rest of Mr. Jay's immediate relatives are recipients of many beautiful tributes of condolence and sympathy in their deep bereavement.  Below is a sample of the expressions of one of the numerous organizations to which he belonged: La Junta, Colo., Jan 9, 1888. Mrs. Jno. W. Jay, Las Animas, Colo. Dear Madam: In behalf of La Junta Lodge, No. 74, I. O. O. F., allow me to tender you and family our deepest sympathies in your very said bereavement.  May the sustaining power of the All Seeing Eye help you to bear you san affliction with Christian fortitude and hope. Fraternally Yours, Cyrus W. France
