Obituary for James Curtis "Jay" McDowell Jr.

James Curtis "Jay"  McDowell Jr.
James “Jay” McDowell, 64, of Lee’s Summit, MO passed away Monday, January 8, 2018. A visitation will be held from 1-2pm on Sunday, January 14, 2018 at Speaks Suburban Chapel 18020 E. 39th St, Independence, MO, 64055. A service will follow at 2pm at the chapel.

Jay was born on May 17, 1953 in Madisonville, KY to James Curtis, Sr. and Jessie (Wright) McDowell. After high school he attended Southeast Missouri State University, where he met the love of his life Ellen Gunter. They were married on December 29, 1973. During his sales career he earned Salesman of the Year several times from multiple companies. He was an Eagle Scout and enjoyed fishing, golf, sports and having weekly lunches with friends. Most of all he loved spending time with his family, especially attending Sam’s football and baseball games; Riley’s dance performances, and Colton’s soccer events. Jay was an active member of Connection Point church (First Baptist Raytown), serving as director of the McDowell Bible Study.

Jay will be remembered by his wife of 44 years Ellen McDowell of Lee’s Summit, MO; daughter Leeann Murphy of Pleasant Hill, MO; mother Jessie McDowell of Lee’s Summit, MO; and grandchildren Samuel, Riley and Colton.

He was preceded in death by his infant daughter Jennifer and his father J.C.

The family suggests memorial contributions be made to the IPF Foundation or Connection Point Church in Raytown.
