Jesse Emerson (Jay) Raine was born February 12, 1937 at Steele's Cross Roads (now Steele's Tank Range) Fort Knox, Kentucky. He graduated from Rineyville (KY) High School in 1956 and from the University of Kentucky, earning his BS in 1960, MS in 1963, and PhD in 1967. He married Sarah Frances VanArsdale in 1959 in Lexington, KY. He is survived by his wife, Sarah Raine; his brother, Luther Raine; his children Michele Raine of Ohio, Kathleen Ralston (Darrell) of California, and Dr. Randall Raine (Cheryl) of Tulsa; grandchildren, Devin and Aidan Raine of Tulsa, CJ, Cami, and Jordan Mischke of Tulsa, and Courtney Ralston of Dana Point, CA; and many great-nieces and great-nephews. Dr. Raine was an educator. He taught statistics and management information systems at the University of Tulsa for twenty years, he was a charter member of the Decision Sciences Institute, and twice national president of Alpha Iota Delta--the national honor society for the decision sciences--and served seventeen years on the Advisory Council to the Oklahoma State Board of Nursing. He was a member of MENSA. He was a landlord, and president of the Kendall-Whittier Residential Landlords Association at a time the Tulsa Police said that was the toughest area in Tulsa. He was a writer, publishing three books and more than three hundred articles. He was an expert in the care and maintenance of 1957 Thunderbird automobiles and a Master Judge for their car shows. Lastly, his picture--in his bib overalls--has appeared in publications in all fifty states and fourteen foreign countries. Donations in his memory can be made to the University of Kentucky general scholarship fund.

I loved my statistics classes with Dr. Raines! I tutored for him, and at a pivotal time I went to him for future schooling advice. After finishing my undergraduate business degree I was pondering whether or not to continue and secure my bachelor's degree in mathematics or go on to the MBA program. He wisely told me to pursue the MBA, which I did. Best advice ever!

Sarah, Our thoughts are with you at this time, sharing your loss. Wonderful memories of your hospitality and fellowship that we shared in your home at the time of Ruth's illness and later at the time of her funeral. May the comfort of God's favor bring you peace and consolation. The promises of God are sure to all who believe, and we look forward to eternal fellowship and joy in his presence. With loving care. Joan and Ira Hobbs
