Passing of Spirit Flight Attendant Jay Harris

May 4, 2020 — It is with great sadness that we report that on May 2nd, 2020, Spirit Flight Attendant Jay Harris died from complications from COVID-19. Jay has been a part of our AFA Spirit Family as a Fort Lauderdale Flight Attendant since 2008 and is survived by his wife Ellen. 

He was a friend and loved by many Flight Attendants from all bases. Jay will be missed by the many who had the opportunity to work with him. He was well known for his dry sense of humor and thoughtfulness. Jay loved to fly! He was a commercial pilot for Air New England before becoming a Flight Attendant with Spirit. Jay also served as our AFA Spirit Master Executive Council Vice President, 2011-2012, and Local Executive Council 78 (FLL) Vice President, 2010-2012.

Details about the family’s plans to honor and celebrate the life of Jay will be shared with Flight Attendants as soon as they are available. AFA EAP is always available for confidential support and assistance at 800-424-2406 or your Local EAP Representatives.
