My Story

Jake was always a very independent child who loved video games and race cars. You would rarely see him without his Jeff Gordon baseball cap. By the age of 8, Jacob had touched many lives and had many friends. Although he went through a great deal with treatments and side effects, he never complained and was always a pleasant child. When his parents were upset, usually because of some dire prognosis, he would comfort us with a hug and a smile. Its been 6 years but we still miss him more then anything in the world. Jake will always be my hero.
