Jake, I loved your stories. I knew immediately you were a very special person! I loved working with you. I will Never forget you.
Jake and I both attended Bloomington South High School together. He was such a personality that was always up for an adventure. We seemed to keep in touch through Facebook, but I didn’t hear of his passing until a month ago. The world has lost a wonderful person and I’ll miss my friend. My prayers are with you Brenda.
