  1. I always enjoyed talking with jake at ball games or at function in the community. We both talked to each other allot about baseball and he would tell me story’s about people in town or games he would watch or games he played in when he was younger. They dont make them like jake anymore a very good man that i will miss hearing his stoys and his company.

  2. We are so sorry to hear of Jake’s passing. He and my Dad spent many an hour trying to find solutions to the worlds problems over the years at the Swirley Top. I am sure he and my Dad are having a great time catching up in Heaven. He was such a sweet, kind and considerate man. He will be missed by all.

  3. Dear Steve ,
