“Jake you will be missed, your kindness, intelligence, and sense of humor. Not to mention your bright blue eyes and quick smile. RIP
“I remember Jake with such pride and fondness. He worked so very hard at his studies at UVA and it was a pleasure to watch him grow and mature during his time with us at BIS. My deepest and heartfelt sympathy to the family and especially to Julie who devotedly and fiercely loved her brother.
“Our Thoughts and Prayers are with you. May your memories help comfort you during this saddest of times.
“My heart goes out to you all. Jake has been a very good friend of mine for just over 15 years. In a lot of ways I am in denial; because I can't imagine such a lively soul, suddenly not here anymore. Man I laughed as hard as I have ever laughed in my life with you and our friends. Thanks for all of the memories; may you hurt no more. We miss you, yet still know you are all around us.
“Praying for your family!! I had the pleasure to run many calls with jake he was an awsome medic! He even helped with vehxt when I took it many yrs ago! I learned alot from him!
“Jake may you now rest in peace, many prayers to your wife, family, and friends. You all are in my prayers.
“I knew Jake from the time he was a child to the wonderful man he became. As a longtome family friend, we are all so proud of his compassion and accomplishments. He holds a special place in Heaven. May God bless him and his wonderful, loving family. All of our love, Charlie and Lawton
“My heart goes out to your family. I had the pleasure of running with Jake at CARS and SEMM. He was a talented medic and valuable member of both organizations. He was an awesome person that touched the lives of many. He will truly be missed.
