Friends are invited to join in celebrating the life of Jake Hess at Anchorage City Church, 1301 West100th Avenue in Anchorage, Alaska, on Saturday, March 10, 2018, at 1 p.m.

He returned in 1960 and began establishing himself in the oil and gas industry. In 1969, he founded and operated Katmai Oil and Gas until his retirement in 1986.
Jake's passions in life were golf, fishing and boating in and around Seward, Alaska.
Jake is survived by his son, TJ; and his daughter, Liza.
