Jay Ellsworth Marshall, 58, of Windham, died peacefully at his home on Sunday, August 18, 2019. The son of the late Douglas S, Jr. and Mildred C. (Chandler) Marshall, Jay was born on January 6, 1961 in Groton, MA.
Jay spent his formative years in Nashua and he was a 1979 graduate of Nashua High School. He left Nashua in 2003, moving to Cobbetts Pond in Windham.
