Identity:

Jay was married but his wife's name is not known.

Life:

Jay seems to have lived in Paris, or visited JW in Paris, around 1894, and to have been involved in arrangements for the 1894 Antwerp exposition (#10680, #10681). It is not clear if he was an artist or agent for the exhibition. He was apparently a mutual friend of JW and of Jules Stewart, the exhibition organiser.
