Memorials: Directed to the family

Jonathan "Jay" William Hurst was born on July 15, 1987 in Florida. Jay passed away peacefully on June 15, 2022 at his home in Glenwood with his wife Melissa and close family. He is survived by his wife Melissa Hurst of Glenwood, daughter Victoria, Father-in-Law Rory, Mother and Father-in-Law Sheryl and Elzie, brothers-in-law Andrew and Jonathon, his two sons, nieces, nephews and many close family and friends. Jay was raised in Pentecostal faith; his faith remained strong in his soul. Jay had many musical gifts. He worked as a DJ and would spend hours mixing songs and learning lyrics. He loved to sing and he would go on long drives with Melissa just to sing to her. Jay played many musical instruments. Jay lived to ride motorcycles and drive "fast" cars. In Jay's final days he wanted his death to positively impact others. He wanted to go and speak publicly about his life and sickness. He was able to play the organ in the Chapel at Bethany Lutheran home and planned to join their services to play. He was given the opportunity to hot lap a race car at the 180 speedway, which made him smile ear to ear. He would always speak of the things he wanted to do, and in this Melissa supported him to the end.
