He was taken by ambulance to the burn ward at Grossman Burn Center where he remains. We do not specifically know his condition but it is serious enough that he’s been admitted to the hospital.

We’re told Jay has canceled all of his engagements for the duration of the week.

Jay was supposed to appear at The Financial Brand conference on Sunday, but organizers said there was a “very serious medical emergency” that prevented him from showing.
