Jay J. Senkerik — 1971-2018
The BeachFleischman family mourns the loss of our own Jay Senkerik. Jay was one of our principals and a genuinely warm and wonderful individual. We will miss him greatly. He was highly intelligent, vibrant, and had a rare friendliness and charm of personality. The essence of the life Jay lived might be summed up in one word: “Family,” and what a great family man he was. We wish Jay’s family peace, comfort and courage in the days ahead. Our sorrow is lessened only slightly with the comforting thought that we had the privilege to know Jay. We are grateful for that.
