    Jake was a determined young man trying to fit in and do a great job! I was his friend and coworker from Atwoods ,I always tried to make him feel needed! I no longer work there and heard the news I was blown away! We always wonder and I wished I’d gave him my phone number, I’d would of been there for anything! I loved his stories of the good times on Spring Break. He so needed that vacation% and I was,proud he got to go! He was never given the credit he deserved and I always tried to make up for it by encouraging him. We came to be close. He loved life and friends. I’m proud to have a bond and a broken heart. I’ll miss him and may the angelic Prayers touch his family,coworkers, and friends! Light a candle and remember that sweet smile and very respectful young man that he wasI
