Jake, I worked with you at O.R. Solutions years ago . You were such an upstanding human who made us all laugh & really brought us in the ORS family together. Your positivity and warmth was so infectious that we all couldn’t help but put a smile on our faces when we spoke to you. You were an awesome friend! Sending you and your family much love. I am here for you always. Leo.

To Allison and Finn

Your dad was so very proud and your mom is too that you brought such joy as you masterfully played that very famous tune.

A tune that inspires majesty, space and conquest.

That tune that “you” Finn love the most!

Your dad and mom so proud of the hard work and practice you dedicated in lessons and at home to learn a favorite of yours and your dad.

May the force be with you and know that out there and near you in the heavens and stars dad is there still listening and still exuberant with joy at his boy playing Star Wars so majestically!


Your very proud “of you” piano teacher

It is with a very heavy heart that I extend my deepest condolences at Jacob's passing. I wish with all my heart I had words to make you feel better in some way, but I do not know what those words could possibly be. A donation has been made to in memory of Jacob. I do not know what I can offer you or your family beyond prayer, but should anything ever arise, I stand at the ready to do anything I can for you. I pray unto the Lord thy God that His mighty hands are upon you and that He has placed His mightiest of angels around you, your family, around Jacob's family, and around all those who lives are touched by this sad moment in time. I pray He delivers you all the strength and courage you need, not only to grieve, but when it is time, to move forward. May His providence flow abundantly in your life and that your children; may divine answers for the many questions before you be given to you; may the memory of Jacob live on brightly in you; may Evan, Finn and Mollie come to know their father all the better as they grow older through all the stories to be told by those who knew and loved him. Jacob will rise again, this is only his sleep, once and never again. This I believe and trust in Jesus most holy name, and in whose name I pray. Amen.
With sympathy,
Ed Stagg
