I was just thinking about Jake today and did a search and I am so sad to hear of his passing. I worked in a program in Syracuse and knew him many years ago now. I am a recording and performing artist in the US and abroad and my spirit will miss him even as the earth does.
To the Thompson family,
The Native students of the Syracuse City School District were enriched by Jake's work. He was a thoughtful and caring administrator. You have my condolences.
