With deepest sorrow and love, we announce that Jay Timothy Vanscoy, age 41 of Hilliard, Ohio, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, January 24, 2021.
The youngest of two sons, Jay was born to Danny and Carmen Vanscoy in Hilliard, Ohio, on January 10, 1980. He was a 1998 graduate of Hilliard Davidson High School who enjoyed playing cards, swimming, and cheering on the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Jay was blessed with a large and loving family. He is survived by his parents, Danny and Carmen Vanscoy of Hilliard Ohio; brother, Dan (Chantel) Vanscoy; nephew, Jordan Vanscoy; and nieces, Grace and Madison Vanscoy.
