Jay E. Levy, age 76 of Pinehurst, North Carolina—formerly of Baltimore, Maryland—passed away Friday, March 12, 2021.

A native of Youngstown, Ohio, he was the beloved son of the late Herman B. and Ruth (Garber) Levy. Jay is survived by his wife Deborah (Debbie) Clark Levy; children Joshua (Tara) Levy, Ben (Stacy Landsman) Levy, Katherine (Jeremy Epstein) Levy, and Emily (Ross Dubin) Levy, all of Baltimore, Maryland; and four granddaughters Corinne Levy, Keira Levy, Hannah Levy, and Clara Epstein.

Jay was a 1966 graduate of Miami University of Ohio and a 1970 graduate of the University of Maryland School of Law. Jay enjoyed a long and successful career as a healthcare attorney, serving as an Assistant Attorney General for the Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission and General Counsel to North Arundel Hospital, Union of Cecil Hospital, and Carroll Hospital Center.

Jay was passionate about golf. Some of his favorite times were spent on the golf course with friends or his favorite companion, Debbie. When not on the golf course, he was happiest with Debbie wandering around the Musée d'Orsay admiring Monet’s Waterlilies.

Jay was a devoted father to his four children; he attended every sporting event, orchestra concert, and graduation. He took immense pride in all their accomplishments but never missed an opportunity to showcase his superior trivia knowledge while watching Jeopardy.

Over the course of his life, Jay was a loving caretaker for numerous spoiled Airedale and Wire Fox Terriers.

A graveside service will be 11:00 AM Sunday, March 14, 2021 at Pinelawn Memorial Park in Southern Pines with Rabbi Kenneth Brickman presiding.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center in honor of the UNC Multiple Myeloma Program.

I have many fond memories of Jay when he and my husband Peter were clerking for judges, and we
were raising young families together. I am saddened to hear of his death. My condolences to Josh,
Ben and the rest of his family.

As I write this, I picture the smile, charm, and warmth of your husband, your dad, which never failed to bring life and laughter to the room. Unless it was the courtroom where Jay Levy brought his comprehensive knowledge of the subject matter, his ability to “think on his feet,” his dynamic litigation skills, and his endearing personality to often sway the court to his direction. And it never mattered who the opposing counsel was or which court he was before, Jay was never intimidated. I was a major beneficiary of this remarkable man having served as his co-counsel at the HSCRC for more than a decade. Often we would ride together to a scheduled court hearing, and I would be amazed at how “cool” Jay was. I’d be on my fifth Pepto Bismol, while Jay would be calmly completing the NY Times Crossword Puzzle or discussing a movie he watched.
As much as I admired Jay the Lawyer, I admired equally the sweet and compassionate person he was and cherish the friendship we developed. We shared in so many great experiences together, both professionally and personally, from taking train trips to meet with iconic figures in health care for the purpose of enlisting them to be our expert witnesses, running together in the very early morning hours, or just sitting down together to “schmooze” (not that we ever did that on State time). While I am heartbroken at the passing of your husband and dad, I will continue to envision him, and that, in and of itself, will put a hop in my step. I just hope that you will find much strength and comfort in your memories, and I know that Jay will reside in the deepest depths of your hearts every single day. That will never change. With deepest sympathy and warmest wishes, Stan.

Dear Debbie, Josh, Ben, Katie and Emily,
Harvey and I are so very sorry for your loss. Jay was the best man at our wedding, 33 years ago. We have the fondest memories. One of most favorite trips was with you Debbie and Jay, Paris and Amsterdam. You were our tour guides, and yes we wandered around the Muse’e d’Orsay. Unfortunately , we can not attend shiva, but our thoughts and prayers are with you, with love.
Karen and Harvey Levy

Debbie, Josh, Ben, Katie and Emily: Debby and I extend our deepest sympathies on Jay’s passing. Ours was a friendship that began in law school in the late 1960s and continued through the Attorney General’s office and on to the golf course. May your memories of the many good times help you through these difficult days.

Debbie & Family,
So sorry to hear this sad news. I loved working with Jay (& Debbie) when I sold his home in Baltimore. I am out of town so unfortunately won't be able to attend the shiva. May all your wonderful happy memories help to ease your pain.
With deepest sympathy,

Hi Debbie, Josh, Ben, Kate and Emily. I am thinking of all of you, and wishing you peace and great memories. I have many great memories of Jay (work, holidays, golf, beach), and I am very thankful for the friendship he had with my Dad (Hal) and Mom (Jo). Jay and my dad had one of the most special friendships I have ever seen. Thinking of you. Robb
