May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived. Al and I had many good times with Jake at the Penn Coachmen rallies. Heartfelt Sympathy to all of his family and friends as we mourn his loss. I'm so glad that Jake walked part of my path through Life with me.

Jake was my manager's manager when I worked at Wilmington Trust Audit in the late 1980s. I remember him as a decent, likeable and fair man...and good for a laugh. My condolences to the family.

Jake was my first manager at Wilmington Trust and we worked together for over 15 years. We had many a lunch together at the Grill in the basement of the Hotel duPont. I'll always remember Jake's smile and the good times we had together. My deepest condolences to Bettie, June and Kathy.

I worked with Jake for many years at Wilmington Trust and have many fond memories of him. I will cherish his friendship. He was a kind, warm human being. My thoughts and prayers are with his loving family.
