“The New York Building Congress is extremely saddened by the passing of Jay Kriegel. Jay forever changed the building industry and the skyline of our city. He had a larger-than-life reputation, but despite all of his success, he never forgot his roots, and his efforts to mentor the young professionals in our industry will be remembered for generations. Jay will always be known as a great Brooklynite, a true New York character and a mensch. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends and the many people he has impacted throughout his life.”
