Jay D. Davidson
Jul 2, 1962 – Jul 16, 2014
Jay’s family and the greater Seattle communities lost a loving, compassionate, strong and giving man on July 16,2014. Jay always enjoyed new adventures. He was a mentor to many. At an early age, Jay always showed compassion and caring for others, and helped guide them to enrich their lives. He had a passion for restoring and rebuilding fast cars, that passion led him into serving his community in transportation. Jay founded Tri-Med in 1995, which includes ambulances and wheelchair vans. Tri-Med has grown into over 50 vehicles and will celebrate 20 years of service to our community in 2015.
Jay’s voice, laughter and his “go BIG or go home” attitude always brought joy and smiles to everyone he spent time with. His kindness, generosity and his loving hands were always felt by family, friends, pets and his community. Jay loved to have a party and people knew the party was starting when Jay arrived.
Jay will be deeply and sadly missed by all of the many people he has touched throughout his life.
Jay is survived by his wife, Barbara; his stepdaughters, Danya Sallee (Derik) and Jenaye Simpson; his mother, Marian Crenshaw and stepfather, Eugene Crenshaw; brothers, Terry Davidson (Jan), Doug Davidson (Wendy), and Rob Davidson; sisters Gloria Hix (Gary) and Tami Vogel (Tom); two grandsons; nieces; nephews; three great-nephews; two beloved dogs Bugsy and Lady; and many uncles, aunts and cousins. He was preceded in death by his father, Ronald Davidson.
Jay’s memorial will be August 9th at 10:00 am at Kent Nazarene Church in Kent, WA. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to King County Medic One Foundation.
