My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time. Such a special young man with a kind, sensitive, warm and witty soul. I pray his faith was always with him and I feel privileged to have known him in this life. Godspeed.

I would like to extend my condolences on the loss of your son/brother. I had the pleasure of speaking with Jacob several times when he was in the neighborhood and always left thinking what a bright young man he was. Remember the great moments with him. Your family is in my prayers.

We are so so saddened to hear of your loss. Jake was a great friend to our son, Ian. We have fond memories of Jake, Adam, Colin and Ian working together at "Adam and Jake's Outdoor Services". Thanks to Jake for hiring Ian. Also, Ian enjoyed attending the youth conference with Jake in New Orleans. Ian loves Jake and he'll so miss him! We are keeping your family in our daily prayers.

I still am having a hard time wrapping my head around this news. Paul, Kathy, and Natalie i am so very sorry for your loss. I will forever remember Jake as that care free young boy on those summer days while I babysat them. Prayers for the family through this extremely difficult time.

I am so sorry to hear of Jake's passing. He was loved by so many of his friends at Ohio University. His absence is greatly felt. Your son was a wonderful young man and a very good friend to my son and others. I will always remember Jake making me feel welcome every time I visited OU. I will keep your entire family in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless.

My heart broke when I heard the news of Jacob's passing. He was a wonderful young man who always had a smile on his face. When I taught him when he was in 6th grade, I enjoyed hearing about his hockey games and trips. He truly was a talented young man. I am so deeply sorry for your loss. You all will be in my prayers daily. May the Lord comfort you always.


Janet Maruschak and family
