Jake was a wonderful man. A wonderful and caring Elder. Our family always felt very loved by Jake and we could talk with him for hours. We loved hearing his experiences as well his kind and humble way of speaking. He cared about everyone. He will be very much missed. We are looking forward to seeing him along with his Vera in the promised Paradise. Longing for the day when we see our cherished loved ones again. Jake had faith and shared this every day with all who would listen. ❤️💕
