He graduated from The University School of Nashville in 1991 and earned a bachelor's degree in Music Business from Belmont University in 1996. He was a successful commercial real estate entrepreneur for over twenty years and was committed to Congregation Micah, where he served on the board. Jay was beloved by friends and family and will always be remembered with a huge smile. He was a true family man who took great pleasure in spending time with his wife Jessie of 16 years, his two children Zoe and Simon, his best friend and brother Cary, and his large extended family and Nashville community. He was a true Music City native and passionate music fan who always enjoyed live shows, and discovering new bands. His son, Simon, remembers the night before he turned 10 when Jay told him to it would be the last time he would be a single digit. His daughter Zoe recalls last year when Jay took her to her first concert at 3rd and Lindsley featuring one of his favorite bands, The Wood Brothers. Many would say that Jay had a soundtrack playing in the background of his life, always finding ways to weave his favorite bands, songs and lyrics into memorable moments with his family and friends. The walls of his home are filled with concert posters and music memorabilia, which always surrounded him and his family with the magic of live shows and the music he loved so deeply. His passion for life, his sweet soul, his big smile, and his loving spirit will live on in his children, and will be remembered by all. Jay is survived by wife Jessie Rosenblum and children Zoe and Simon of Nashville; parents Brenda and Bobby Rosenblum of Nashville; in-laws William Stockard and Mary Stockard of Nashville; and brother and sister-in-law Cary and Jenn Rosenblum of Nashville.
