Juliano passed away in his home on March 26, 2019, after a long and
courageous battle with Multiple Sclerosis.
Jay was born on
October 28, 1944, in Chicago, IL, to Evangeline and Jerry Juliano.
Jay received his
Respiratory Therapy License after graduating from Triton College in
Illinois. He went on to obtain a Masters Degree in Administration from the
University of Notre Dame. He was a respiratory therapist in many Chicagoland
hospitals and at Methodist Hospitals in Merrillville and Gary, IN. He also
taught at Indiana University Northwest and at Ivy Tech Community College. He
loved the field of respiratory therapy and served several years as the
president of the Indiana State Society of Respiratory Therapists.
Jay is survived by
his wife, Marguerite (Maggie); his sons Jason (Lena) and Jeremy (Annabel)
and his daughter Jennifer (Louie) Frigo. His six grandchildren: Anais, Jace,
Lilah, Jameson and Abbigail Juliano and Leia Frigo brought him great joy and
pride. Also to survive is his father Jerry, his two brothers James (Therese)
and Jack (Cheryl) along with many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
He was preceded in
death by his mother Evangeline (Tootsie) Juliano.
The family would
like to thank VNA Hospice for their loving care and support. In lieu of
flowers, donations in Jay's name may be made to the National MS Society,
3500 DePauw Blvd., Indianapolis, IN 46268.
Per Jay's wishes,
there will be no visitation; as he generously donated his body to the
Indiana University School of Medicine.
A Memorial Mass
will be celebrated by Father Jon Plavcan on Thursday, April 4, 2019, at 10
a.m., at St. Patrick Church, Chesterton, IN.
