Jake was a wonderful neighbor! I sure am going to miss him. I enjoyed taking fish and crab over to him.
Jake this was areal surprise, we just recieved a christmas card from you; Betty and I have enjoyed your cards each year sinc we left juneau, but we still have the memories and friends,
jake I KNOW I WILLSEE YOU AGAIN, AND KEEP THE ELEVENTH BILL TOLLING, I/We enjoyed our years working together with the City Fair skys and following seas;;;;;;;;;;;;;
My parents send you their love. Bill and Lavera Ellis. My dad worked with Jake and was one of the few people he's kept in contact with and what a character he was! Always had something funny to say. Good man with a big heart!
For Jake, he was always a light in the darkness.
Jake: We have known you for so many years, enjoyed Masonic/Shriner events and dinners together inside the Lodge and in our homes, it hardly seems possible that you have journeyed on. Memories of those times together will live on in my heart. Now, two of the three "Muskateers" as some of us called you are gone. Fortunately pictures remain.
Pat Weber (and Fred Weber, in memory)
Jake was one of only two men in Juneau with whom my uncle, Bud Jenne, would hunt. He trusted Jake.
Working for the City, Jake once knocked on our door and asked my mother, Bud's sister, if he could put a layer of concrete over the bottom front step of our house on 7th Street, as he laid a sidewalk there. "Sure!" my mother replied. "GOOD," said Jake with a grin, "'cause I'm gonna do it anyway!"
Another wonderful old Juneau personality gone.
Godspeed, Brother Jake.....
