Our Jake (JR, Jake The Snake, Redd Dog, Big Redd, Snake Dawg, Lil JR, Big Pimpin, Snake, J Redd, Jake man, Jaker, Baker boy, Jakey poo, and Bossman) packed so much  into 22 years. He had big dreams, loved everyone, and loved BIG. He touched so many with his smile, huge heart, and relentless antics. 

Family was a priority for the Jake man. He loved his friends, coworkers, and his “baby boy” Irvin.  He thoroughly enjoyed spending time with family and friends.  He brought the entertainment, even if it was more than we were prepared for!!!

We love him to the moon and back. We will cry, love, pray, and try our best to party on in his honor. 

“The Brightest stars burn out the quickest.”
