Jerry, I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I remember Thanksgiving 2001, when we all gathered at Kirk and Andrea's house. I had just moved to the UK and didn't know you and Pam yet (I think I had just met you once at church), but as we shared abot our families, it was so clear to me that you really, really loved your son. You showed me the picture of him you carried in your wallet, and I could see what a deep and important place he had in your heart. Please know that I am lifting you all up to the Father right now as you grieve the loss of Jake.

Jake & Pam, Gosh - where to begin. My memories wind back to the beautiful time we shared in Oxford. Jake is slightly older than my older brother and I delighted in trying to interrupt their playtime. Our childhoods, Jake and mine, were before the era of Facebook and the internet. It wasn't until years later that he and I reconnected. Jake was funny, kind, sweet, caring, interesting and interested in others.

I never knew Jake as an adult. My memories are of him attending the church summer camps. It was a joy to have him there. His acceptance of everyone and friendship to all was obvious. He was popular and always fun to be around. He made a difference by being at the camps adding an element of joy and fun. So sorry for the family's loss.

Dear Crystal and Jerry and Pam, wishing you peace and hoping you find some comfort in knowing how much Jake was loved and admired by those who knew him. My memories of Jake: In January 1991, I visited my brother Jerry and and his son Jake in England at their home at Royal Air Force Greenham Common. Jerry was stationed there as part of the U.S. Air Force. This was my first trip overseas. Jake was 8 years old and liked to draw and knew I liked drawing and comic books. He put a lot of energy and detail into the drawing of a race car and gave me the drawing which I treasure still. Over the years, most of my conversations with Jake were by phone, mostly while on visits to Tucson when my Mom or Dad would say, "Let's call Jake," so we did, sharing the phone with the family on hand. His bright generous spirit, matched with his inquisitive mind and quick wit, made talking with Jake a delight and an adventure, all bundled up in a story he had to tell you just right and right then. Love you and miss you Jake!

You worked with me doing food demo's for awhile and always gave you chips and dips. You had fun putting the chips artistically on the plate and people would stand and watch you amazed. You were like my third son and walk in the house and go to the fridge. If I had made Monte Cristo sandwiches your eyes would light up. When ever I make them I will think of you. You are loved and will be missed.

We loved Jake very much and was proud to call him our nephew. We will miss his radiant smile, his great big hugs and his great sense of sincerity to all. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family in this time of such great loss.

Jake was a good person he would help anyone without thinking twice. He made everyone around him feel seen and included. Jake saw the world in the most beautiful way, we went to Mexico and visited the castle and museums and spent hours just talking about art while trying to interpret what the artist was trying to express. It wasn’t just art but he also wrote wonderful poetry, the way that he used the written word to describe how he’s feeling , even if he couldn’t express it verbally, was beautiful. The world lost a really good person and my prayers go out to his family and I hope that he’s in heaven having one of his long talks with God.
