James Patrick “Jay” Savey, age 30, passed away on July 30, 2020, in Windermere, Florida. Jay entered into eternity alongside his beloved father, John Michael Savey.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, James Joseph Savey, Dorothy Marie Suter Savey and Franklin D. Conley; and aunt, Shelley S. Conley.
He is survived by his loving mother, Lisa R. Conley Savey of Windermere, Florida; three sisters, Ashley Lynette Savey of West Palm, Florida, Jennifer Lea Savey of Ocoee, Florida, and Kara Beth Savey Stagg, and brother-in-law, Eric Stagg of Apopka, Florida; two nephews, Mason Kyler Cardy and Jax Granville Stagg; two nieces, Tru Ellie-Kaye Stagg and Ivy Jo Stagg; as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
As a homeschool graduate, Jay attended Beacon College in Leesburg, Florida, where he graduated with a B.A. in General Studies in 2015. Jay was very proud to be a current student in the Welding Program at Orange Technical College in Orlando, Florida, and was very much looking forward to his future career in welding.
Jay will be remembered as a lovable son, a very special brother, the most fun Uncle Jay Jay to his nieces and nephews, and a loyal friend. He was an artistic, tender-hearted and thoughtful guy whose movie impressions were second to none. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Lastly, as a devoted fan of the Columbus Bluejackets, the Cincinnati Bengals and the Ohio State Buckeyes, the cheering sections will never be quite as loud. …I-O!
