Anyone that knew Jacob loved him. His laugh was contagious and will forever be etched in the minds of his family and friends. He had the biggest heart and was always drawn to people that others would cast aside. As one friend said of him, “Jake always wanted to help others but was lost how to help himself.” He was so loved by so many. His heart experienced a lot of pain in this life but we believe he is resting in the arms of Jesus now, free from pain and sorrow. He will forever be loved and missed by his family and friends.
