I worked for Jake at EIU forever! He was an amazing boss. He was decisive, funny and never let the job go to his head! I was blessed to have known him. He may be gone but will never be forgotten by those that loved him.
Jamie's Papa was by far an awesome grandfather! He raised a wonderful family that I am grateful to have in my life. I am certain he passed with the happiness of knowing that they would be strong together and think of him with overwhelming love each day. He will be dearly missed.
Much love to the whole family.

Debbie, My sympathy to you and your family in the loss of your father. God bless and keep you at this difficult time .
My sympathy to the family. Jake was a gentleman and all around good guy.
I met Jake when I joined the Charleston Rotary Club 25 years ago, and had the pleasure of working with him on many community service projects. You could always count on Jake for a quick smile, a kind word, and a helping hand. I will miss him.
