A portion of the obit follows:
Jay Reagan Uusitalo of Redmond, WA, a much-loved son, brother, husband, uncle, father, and friend passed away unexpectedly on March 9. Born in Napa, CA on December 25, 1967, Jay graduated from Napa High School and UC Berkeley, where he became a lifelong Bears fan.
Jay, an avid pilot, learned to fly at a young age from his grandfather. The bond with his family created the foundation for the man he became – caring, genuine, trustworthy – the same qualities Jay wanted to pass down to his daughters.
Jay’s zest for life was truly contagious. He made everyone with whom he came into contact feel special. Jay truly valued the simple things in life, never taking a single moment for granted, always fortunate and thankful for the many blessings he received. The most important of these were his wife, Stephanie, and their two beautiful daughters, Ava and Ashley.
