Jay was born December 7, 1984 to parents Wallace D Reid and Dianne Lyons. Jay was in such a hurry to get into this world he was born 6 weeks early. Jay was a fighter then and continued to be a fighter to the very end. After a long battle with Kidney Failure, he passed away peacefully in his sleep on December 8, 2022 in his home in West Jordan, Utah. He was a loving son, leaving no room for doubt. He would tell you how much he loved you. He would always show his gratitude when anyone helped him out. He had a very independent nature and didn’t ask for help as much as he should have. He wanted to be the person helping other people out. He will be remembered as loving and caring person. Jay loved his dog, Mickey, like his own child. They were always together. Jay was streaming before most people new what that meant, many people owe many years of Netflix to Jay, we know who we are. He may have invented binge-watching. He will never be forgotten and always loved. Life is not forever. Love is.
Proceeded in death by Father Wallace D Reid, Sister Shantelle Reid, Brother Ethan Reid, Grandparents and many loved ones.
He is survived by Mother Dianne Van Leeuwen (Steven), Brother Ammon Reid (Megan), Sister Ashley Reid, Nephews Liam Reid and Aaden Hartvigsen, Grandmother Laraine Reid, Dog Mickey and many other family members and friends.
