Jerome Edwin Clary, Jr. '78
April 29, 1956 - January 3, 2021
Jerome Edwin Clary at the age of 64 was called to Heaven, after a month long battle with covid. On January 3, 2021, Jay Clary arrived to be with his Lord and Savior.
Jay attended Texas A&M University and received his Bachelor's degree in Animal Science and was a member of the Class of 1978. He was previously a Senior Regional Manager for the Mid South Delta with Novartis Animal Health. He then moved to Trouw Nutrition as
the Vice President of Agri-Business.
Jay was married to Debbie, the love of his life. They had been together since they were in high school, and after only 6 weeks they were engaged. This June they would have celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary. Jay absolutely loved Debbie with all of his
heart and soul. Together they had three children DeAnna, JaNette, and Jeromey, and have been blessed with nine grandchildren.
Jay was an inspirational person, posting daily devotionals to encourage Dee, his oldest daughter, and the thousands of teamDEEtermined members. Team DEEtermined was a Facebook group that grew to nearly 2,000 people from all over the world. Unfortunately, 10
weeks ago, Jay and Debbie lost their daughter to breast cancer.
