Jason E. Haynes - 34

8/3/1980 - 1/9/2015

Byron, IL

Jason “Jay” Haynes, 34, passed away Friday January 9, 2015, at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, IL. in the company of family and MICU staff. He was born August 3, 1980, in Rockford IL, to Joseph Haynes and Peggy (Fritz) Bergmark. Jay graduated from Byron high school in 1999. Jay was a huge Chicago sports fan and rarely missed a Bears, Cubs, Bulls, or Blackhawks game. He had a never fading smile and was always there to help others. Even though he fought a 34-year battle with Cystic Fibrosis, underwent a double lung transplant in 2011, and a second right lung transplant in 2013, Jay was never one to complain. Fighting was all Jay ever knew, and he fought with grace and honor. Jay is now able to BREATHE EASY.

Jay is survived by his father, Joseph and Tina (Snow) Haynes of New Milford; his mother, Peggy (Fritz) Bergmark and Pat Hood of Winnebago; siblings, Justin (Angella) Haynes of Rockford, IL, Kristina (Eric) Wiltfang of Byron, IL, & Teagen Haynes of Rockford, IL;  step-siblings, Justin (Nicki) Snow of Valdosta, GA & Deana (Tim) Klaman of Polo, IL; grandmothers, Kathern (Louis) Fritz & Sandy (James) Haynes; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews. Predeceased by grandfathers, Louis Fritz & James Haynes; and grandmother, Barbara (Billick) Haynes.
