Our beloved Jake went home on Friday, March 23, 2007, to be with our Lord and many of his treasured family members and dear companion Jen. Jake was born on Nov. 23, 1987, in Arvada. He loved red, and he embraced being a redhead (white brows as well). We called him Jake the Snake, Jaker Shaker, Red Speed, Carrot Top, Roho, No Brow, Fire and Whitie. Jake graduated in 2006 from Eagle Valley High School (with a cooler full of Mountain Dew under his chair) and was a student at Mesa State College. He loved his family, his friends and having an awesome time whether it be soccer, hockey, track, snow boarding or just “hanging out.” He will be greatly missed for his “go get it” nature.He is survived by his mom, Marilyn; his dad, Vern; his special sister, Kathryn; and his big little brother, Weston.
