J had served as a police officer with the City of Delaware, having retiring as a sergeant in 2010 after 25 years of dedicated service. He was a member of the F.O.P. Lodge 56. J was an honorable, loyal, and protective man. He had a tough exterior, but was very kind and loving toward his family, and anyone he cared about. He held himself and those around him to high standards; to be the best that they could be. J enjoyed watching the Cincinnati Bengals and the Reds, the U.C.

In addition to his mother, J was preceded in death by his brothers-in-law: Jay Morrow, and Steve Barnes.
