Memorial
This site is dedicated to my best friend, Jay Wilger.

I first met Jay in February, 1990. I was fresh out of the U.S.Army and was starting a new job with Eastern Ambulance Service as a new paramedic. Jay was working as an EMT-I. My first impression was that he was arrogant, sarcastic and had a reply for anything. In fact, he was just like me. I liked him immediately.

Jay would come to the lake and, rather than join in the festivities, preferred to throw out a line and lose himself in a book. I loved that. We think of him often. He gave us some ambulance coffee mugs we drink tea out of and toast him every time we do.

We worked 24hr shifts so after 3 every other days of 24 hour shifts we had 4 days off. More than once Jay I headed out from whatever station we were working at 0700 and headed west on I-80 from Lincoln. We took a left turn at York Ne and 11.5 hours later we arrived in Galveston Texas where we fished for the next 100 hours or so and then headed back to Nebraska. My most special memories of Jay are on these road trips. Miss you my friend- JJp

I worked at a radio station in Lincoln with Jay in 1983 and he was so funny and kind. When we we're on the air together, we would laugh and take phone calls and everyone just loved him. We kept in touch a little bit through the years but, sadly, we lost touch. I was thinking about him one afteroon at the end of June in 2011 while on the air in Atlanta. I googled him and saw his obituary. Stunned-I cried all he way home and kicked myself for not reaching out sooner. May he rest in peace.

"Jay was one of my best friends in High School and after. When Jay and I went to Sanibel in Floria, Jay caught a great white shark and I never saw a bigger smile on anyones face. Those were GREAT TIMES thanks to my friend. I will never forget you."
