Jay was born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, on April 17, 1946. He attended Moravian College, where he met his wife Caroline. They married on November 1, 1969, married 48 years.
Jay was a successful real estate developer who ran several companies and developed vacation home projects in the Pocono Mountains, Florida, and the British Virgin Islands. He enjoyed ballroom dancing, kayaking, and golf. He loved gardening and designing beautiful homes and landscapes. He loved traveling throughout the United States, enjoying the planning process almost as much as the actual travel. He loved taking his entire family on vacations to warmer climates. He enjoyed playing games of all kinds, debating politics, and rooting for the Philadelphia Eagles. Above all, he lived for his family, especially the love of his life, Caroline. He will be well remembered for his sense of humor, his always optimistic, positive attitude, his generosity, and his love of family.
For the past few years, Jay fought numerous health battles and endured more medical procedures than most, because he really wanted to live to see his grandchildren, Clay, Jackson, Jake, Zachary, Connor, Ethan, and Scarlett, of whom he was so proud, grow up.
In addition to his grandchildren, Jay is survived by his three children, Jennifer Rabold and her husband Dan, Kimberly Rabold and her partner Lynn Turchi, and Lindsey McCullough and her husband Mike; his brother David and his sisters Judi and Bobbie; extended family and many friends. Jay is preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Louise Rabold, as well as his brother Ted.
