Jay Alan Longshore and Vilai Prasertsang

Jay Alan Longshore

Jay Alan Longshore, a teacher, died after a brief illness in Thailand on Wednesday, Nov. 23, 2022. He was 61.

He graduated from Guilderland High School in 1980, from Haverford College in 1984, and from Temple University in 1990.

“After teaching at the Junior College of Philadelphia for 15 years, he moved to Thailand and taught English to Thai elementary students in Ayutthaya, Thailand,” his family wrote in a tribute. “This is where he met Vilai Prasertsang (Som) and her daughter, Namwan, and they became his Thai family.”

He is survived by his son, Ian Longshore, of Philadelphia; by his father, Alan Longshore, of Voorheesville; by his sister, Amy Robinson, and her husband, Rob, and niece, Rebecca, all of Stanwell Park, Australia; and by his brother, Jon Longshore and his wife, Chris, of Guilderland.
