Dr. Jay Adams (91) exchanged mortality for immortality and faith for sight as he joined countless believers worshiping at the feet of Jesus on November 14, 2020.
He was born in Baltimore, Maryland on January 30, 1929 to Joseph and Anita Adams. His loving family is grieving, yet with hope: his wife of over 69 years Betty Jane Whitlock, two daughters Holly Adams Emmons (Thomas), Heather Adams Slattery (William), and daughter-in-law Lucy Anne Adams Wontrop (Carroll), sons Jonathan Todd Adams (deceased) and Dennison Clay Adams (Leah); thirteen grandchildren Christopher Emmons, Lucas Adams (Cassie), Jake Adams (Rachel), Ingrid Adams Andersen (Corey), Brandon Adams, Joshua Adams, Hannah Encinas, Dennison Adams, Isabella Adams, Kara Slattery Nash (Mark), Caitlyn Slattery Hunter (William), Collier Slattery Thomas (Donald), Cameron Slattery; twelve great grandchildren Bennett, Declan, Jonathan, Cooper Rose, Scarlett, Silas, Penny, Clementine, Delainey, Lincoln, Evangeline, Reagan, and Nicholas and Sophie (deceased).
In his last days, Jay was tenderly cared for by Cassandra and Kera with Providence Care, Simpsonville, SC.
In The family appreciates all the love, concern, prayers and thoughtful remembrances shared by friends near and far.
Jay was a treasure to our family and the church universal. We praise God for the gift of His humble servant to us, whom we dearly loved.
