Not sure what to say?

Jake was a great man who touched many peoples lives and I was one of them.

I'm so sorry for your loss. As you remember your love one, may your treasured memories and Almighty God comfort your broken hearts. (Psalm 147:3)

I remember Jake and his many stories about his family, trips with his daughter, wife and him, camps with Bobby Knight, and senior games he played.
He was a competitor, a gentleman, and a great role model.
All the old guys at Spring Grove will really miss him.
RIP Jake.

Coach Diviney was a great coach and friend. I was always motivated by him no matter what. I will miss his smile when we played on Saturdays and would open up the gym before he got there. Our condolences go out to all of the family. May he rest somewhere they play ball.
