SOUTHAMPTON, NY — An army of friends and supporters is mobilizing to help a local man and business owner, also a solider in the Army Special Forces National Guard — a Green Beret battling brain cancer.
A GoFundMe page, “SFC Jay Jinks Needs Help,” was created by Joseph Villers of Southampton on behalf of Sergeant First Class Jay Jinks, currently serving with 20th Special Forces Group.
“Jay became a Green Beret in 1997 and served initially on active duty with 10th Special Forces Group,” the page said. “Jay is currently receiving treatment for a large cancerous brain tumor, which was just recently discovered. He has already been through a couple of surgeries but remains positive.”
