June 03, 1970 - June 04, 2021
Jay Stamper, age 50, passed away on June 4, 2021.
Born in Ponca City, Oklahoma, he was the youngest and only son of Jack & Joella Stamper. He completed a bachelor's degree with a focus on business and political science which he began at U.T. Arlington, later at O.S.U, and completed at ASU in Phoenix. He was employed at Voya for the last seventeen years, most recently in the position of Vice President and Managing Paralegal, Mutual Fund Legal Department.
Jay had a love of music and a taste that spanned country music, rock, pop, and jazz. As well as some of the classics. He wasn't a native of the area but he loved Phoenix and made it his home for the last 25+ years. We will miss his whit, his sarcasm, and his charm. For those of us who knew him, we will also miss his kindness. While not something he showed to everyone but for a few, we all know he was a big marshmallow.
He is survived by his mother, Joella and his sisters, Paula and Jennifer as well as his many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father, Jack Stamper also from the Phoenix area.
The memorial service and reception will be held on June 21st at 9:00am at Hansen Mortuaries & Cemetery, at 6500 E. Bell Road, Scottsdale, AZ 85254.
