    Jay Lewis Tinter

    72, Atlanta, GA


    Jay Lewis Tinter passed away peacefully on December 29, 2022 surrounded by loved ones.  Jay was born on May 28, 1950 in Miami, Florida. He was the son of Stanley Joseph Tinter OBM, and Annette. After his father’s passing in 1962 Jay and his three younger brothers along with their mother moved to Atlanta. Jay graduated from Henry Grady High School in 1968.  Shortly after, Jay enlisted in the Coast Guard Reserves and was stationed in New Jersey. Jay graduated from Georgia State University Magna Cum Lade and earned his CPA. Jay worked at Laventhaw and Horowitz and then went out on his own in the real estate business. Soon he established Atlanta Commercial Realty Inc and became a successful businessman whose employees respected him and remained loyal to him for decades.  Jay was married to his highschool sweetheart, Sheila, for 20 years.  They had two daughters, who were the lights of his life.  He reconnected with his second love, Lora, and they were together until the end, sharing a deep love. Since the age of 5, Jay dreamed of having a farm. He loved the peace and tranquility that he viewed as nature’s gifts. He built Hillside Angus Farm where he raised Angus cattle. Jay was a charitable man who did not let a year go by without giving to his community. He was a devout Jewish man who praised G-d daily and taught his children and grandchildren to do the same. Jay was larger than life and loved the simple blessings so many take for granted. 


    Jay is survived by his mother Annette Z Tinter Easton, 2 daughters, Jennifer Rae Tinter, Jodi Tinter Cannady (William Howard III) and grandchildren Liam, Drew, Cole and Jace, his brothers Steve, Ricky (Pam), Danny (Lynn) and many nieces, nephews and his love Lora Fruchtman.

    Cousin Jay was a spark of life who always had some new endeavor before him that he would describe with a twinkle in his eye, whether it was a Harley, a farm, a breeding cow, or a business project. When we were kids, he was kind of like a Hulk Hogan figure to me -- just bigger and more colorful than your average Joe. Jay, we'll miss you. You left the stage too soon. Love, Scott

He touched so many hearts. My heart hurts and goes out to his family especially Jodi and Jennifer. Lots of Love, Patty

  • Phil Higgins

    Jay was such a good friend to my Father. The time they spent together on the farm was some of the greatest times. Through there friendship Jay became a part of our family. We came from very different backgrounds but that didn’t matter. We just seemed to have a friendship bond that made everything okay. He treated my family like we were part of his family. I will always treasure that. Prayers for comfort for all family.
