A beautiful soul, a friend, a work companion (especially when it snowed!), and a kindness unmatched. He truly loved his neighbors, and his God. My heart is aching, though I know he is with God.

Jacob, you are one of the sweetest and most kind people I have ever known. You have been a wonderful and supportive friend to my son for many years. I will never forget you! I wish for you a peaceful passing into a world as wonderful as you.

Jake, I know that I am not the only person who's life you had influenced. I met you while I was staying at the 13th Step House; you were absolutely the most influential soul. When you spoke it came from the heart, and you had a true love for your fellow man. Years later I would run into you here and there, and always would stop to talk for a while. Your soul is one that this world will sorely miss, but I know in my heart that God has a plan for you. I only wish I had gotten to see you once more. My condolences go out to your family. Rest in Peace Jake.
