Jay Harvey Thomas was born June 3, 1975 in Madison, Wisconsin to Earl and Carol (Babington) Thomas.  When Jay was two the family sold their property in Portage, Wisconsin and moved to Naples, Idaho to start a new adventure.  They bought the Naples Café and operated it for several years.  Jay attended school in Naples and Bonners Ferry.  He later met and married Taunee Muson and they had three children, Samantha Jaye, Ashley Renee and Nathan Bradley.  Jay and Taunee later divorced and never remarried.  He worked at various jobs until MS put a stop to his ability to work when he was 21 years old.  The disease progressed until Jay was no longer able to care for himself and was admitted to various nursing homes, finally moving to Valley Vista Care in Sandpoint where he received excellent care from a wonderful staff.
