    Jake was a dear brother in Christ and a great friend. He will be missed by his church family in many ways. We loved him dearly.

    I am so sorry to hear this, Jake was a real sweet guy. I always enjoyed his stories and just visiting with him when he drove me to and from my medical appointments. He will be missed by many, but not forgotten. May God bless you all during this trying time. R.I.P JAKE!!!
