My thoughts and prayers go out to Jake's family and friends. I met Jake over 30 years ago and he, along with his wife Rose, quickly became good family friends.
Jake was a talented, intelligent and generous man who genuinely liked people. I learned a lot from him and have fond memories of time spent at his house and taking my young son to his farm as well. Jake took him out on the tractor and I think he enjoyed it as much as my son did.
Jake will not be forgotten.
