Former Jaguars and current New York Giants Head Coach Tom Coughlin paid a visit WolfsonChildrens Hospital Friday.

Coughlin visited patients and toured the soon to be completed teen recreation room paid for by his charity the Jay Fund.

The Jay fund was founded in honor of Jay McGillis, who played for Coughlin when he was Head Coach at Boston College and passed away from cancer.

Despite leaving the Jaguars after the 2002 season, Coughlin still has strong ties to the area.

The Jay Fund is based in Jacksonville.

Coughlin says the success of the Jay Fund has been humbling.

He says he enjoys visiting with young cancer patients and their families saying it shows what the Jay Fund is all about.

The teen room includes video and board games along with wi-fi and a fooseball table.       

The Jay Fund has provided more than 4-million dollars in grants to families facing pediatric cancer in the Jacksonville and New York areas.
