Jay W. Shiveley died suddenly, but peacefully, at home on Oct. 20, 2006 in Atherton, Calif. He was 50 years old. He was a much-adored husband, father of three, brother and son. Jay and his family spent a lot of their time in Utah at their home in Deer Valley.

Born Sept. 13, 1956, Jay graduated from Mankato State University and worked for 27 years in technology sales and leadership roles at Oracle, Forte, Vitria, and most recently as CEO of OQO. He also worked in venture capital at Atlas Venture, Sprout Group and Vantage Point Venture Partners. Jay was a business leader who made each business he worked in and each person he worked with better. He gave his all and inspired others to do the same.

Jay was an avid cyclist, riding regularly with Team Lombardi, occasionally alongside U.S. Postal Service Pro Racing Team and Discovery Channel, and forever with his cycling buddies and friends.

Jay was a devoted father who cherished his family. He played actively with his children and taught them the importance of kindness and excellence. Jay was always present, always patient, and always loving.

Jay is survived by his wife, Lisa Shiveley; children, Aaron Shiveley (17), Keaton Shiveley (nine), and Leighton Shiveley (five); parents, Jake and Karen Shiveley; brother, Timothy Shiveley; and sisters, Lee Ann Shiveley and Sabrena Resman.
