Once when asked to describe Bill by a reporter, after loosing a city election to him, I repliedRead More "He's a fine Cristian man." I've known Bill for many years since then and always respected him for the level of respect he showed even to those who opposed him. He was a dedicated man to his community and to the kids. May he now find peace in God and I pray for his family to be embraced by the community that loved him and benefitted so much from his steadfast works.

Bill was a one of a kind person,who cared about the people and his city. As sick as he was, he putRead More forth all the effort he could to continue on as Councilman Bill Thrash. He represented the City of Kennesaw with pride and always showed that he would always move forward to do what was best for his people, the citizens of Kennesaw. All you had to do was ask and always with a smile he would say "I will see what I can do". There is going to be a big hole in the City Council and many hearts now, because Bill was a legend. It will take someone as genuine and honest as Bill Thrash to be able to fill his shoes. May He Rest In Peace! He will be sadly missed by all. I was so proud to call him my friend.

Bill has been my neighbor and friend for over 10 years and I cant think of a better family man,Read More husband, and father than him. He was a very caring and giving person. He was like a real Grandpa to my kids Gracie and Eli and like a second father to my wife Shawn. He will be missed deeply but he will be remembered for the great man that he was. We are still neighbors and don't worry Bill we will look after Suzie and the kids for you!

Jay dated one of my wife's best friends when they were in high school. He went to their church,Read More First Baptist of Conyers ,and even though I was Catholic, his smile always made me feel welcome. We developed a great friendship and then we both went away to college. I lost track with him at that point and heard stories here and there since. When you're busy living your own life, you take for granted those people around you. You always expect them to be there. I was working in Kennesaw when I got the news Friday morning that Jay had been in an accident and I needed to pray for him. I got a text later that he had passed... I unknowlingly drove right past Kennestone hospital. Had I known he was there, I would have stopped. It's crazy, I can't believe he's gone and now I'm sad that I didn't get to share some of those memories with him, tell him what a great friend he was and of course, say good bye. He was truly an inspiring soul and I will never forget him. Take care buddy, I will see you again one day.

A very nice, energetic, and crazy guy who was just as passionate about educating and mentoringRead More students as I am. You left a favorable impression on me that will serve as inspiration forever. Rest In Peace Coach.

I didn't know Jay, but in a way I feel like I do. My 63-year-old husband is one of very few peopleRead More privileged to be on a heart transplant list. My husband, who turns 64 on February 9th, has been suffering for over two years from a severely damaged heart as a result of a massive heart attack in 2009. Two weeks ago, he was told he was so sick that he could not leave the hospital if he wanted to live. He now resides in Emory's CCU unit, waiting for a heart. This journey has been long and has made me realize, if I didn't before, how very precious life is. My heart goes out to Jay, his wife and children, his mother, father and any siblings. What a wonderful person Jay seems to have been, a real force on this earth. And now Jay lives on in others that benefited from one of the most tragic things that can occur in this life -- the death of a young, vibrant, energetic, contributing member of our earthly family. So much goes into being placed on a heart transplant list, but the one thing that everyone can do to help others is to become an organ donor. It seems that Jay was all about life, and now he lost his own, yet others can live. It reminds me of another that lost His life so long ago. Thank you Jay and Jay's family for giving the gift of organ donation. May Jay rest in peace. God bless.
