He was selected to play saxophone in All-Region band on several occasions and shared his talent with other musicians in the Mid-South Honor Band. Jake was an avid fisherman and loved to camp and spend time with his children, family, and friends. Jake had a buoyant, easygoing personality and was a friend to all who met him.

I haven't work with Jacob long but the time we worked together
He and I became good friends he always had a smile on
His face never a dull moment I will miss him very much
He always says hi always full of life he was a great person
A great helper and never minded showing how yo do things
Thank you Jacob for all your teaching you will be highly
