AT&T. He was taking a year to decide between college for ministry or law
enforcement. He loved more than anything, spending time with his family and
friends. Jake had a quick wit and a great sense of humor. His smile could light
up any room! He was so fun to be around, and he could put people at ease
quickly with his witty conversations. He loved to joke with people and laugh
with them. He loved to laugh which is why he also enjoyed listening to
comedians. He enjoyed outdoor hobbies like duck hunting, fishing, 4 wheeling
and basketball in the driveway with friends. He also loved The Patriots, Lord

talker and we are going to miss all of those wonderful words.
