I worked with Jake at the Elora Research Station. He was an amazing boss and a very jovial person. I have fond memories of my time working with him. Please pass my condolences on to Trevor.

I am so sorry to hear of Jake's passing. He was a family friend for many years and well liked by all. It was my plan to attend the memorial service, but Mother Nature had other plans. Hugs to everyone Liz Wilson

We were shocked and saddened to hear of Jake's passing. I too, had know Jake since high school, and have memories beyond that. Many, many Junior Farmer events over the years, etc. - including weddings. Our sincere condolences to all who are feeling this loss, including Shirley with whom I was a classmate in high school.
