Jake leaves us with wonderful memories. Met Jake in 7th grade and last saw him, I believe, at one of our last reunions. He was just as handsome as always and still had that winning smile. I think he’ll be up there teaching God to play football!
Sherry and family, my heart goes out to you all. I remember Jake as an avid sports player at CV. I was 2 years ahead of him.
We are so sorry for your loss, We have such wonderful memories of coming to your place, hanging out and driving six wheelers. Denny especially will always be thankful that when he got out of the hospital and was permanently in a wheelchair Jake was so helpful getting him set up with a six wheeler that allowed him to still enjoy hunting and a have loads of good times. He was a good man. Sherry you were always so welcoming and are such a nice person. Denny and Donna
Jake was a great guy. If he liked you, you became family. Just a giant teddy bear.
We wish we could have visited 1 more time.
Love and support from the Swanson Family
