LT COL (Ret) Jadell Janes (MDiv), 75 of Columbia, Ky, died Friday, December 4, 2020. Jay answered God's call to pastoral ministry in 1971. Following ordination, he joined the Air Force as a chaplain. He spent over 20 years of distinguished service in a variety of assignments. When he retired from pastoral ministry, he enjoyed playing golf with his friends at The Pines at LWC Golf Course. He loved spending time with his family, for whom he made many sacrifices. He loved giving gifts and he rarely ate a family meal that wasn't "the best he ever had!" Posted 1.5.21
