A kind and compassionate gentleman, Jake always put others needs before his own. His upbeat and positive outlook on life was contagious. Jake enjoyed model railroading, golfing, bowling and reading, but most importantly was the time he spent with his family.

As an active resident of Woodbury Heights, Jake served as former President of the School Board. Prior to retiring in 1981, Jake was employed at Mobil Oil in Paulsboro for over 40 years where he was former President of the Credit Union and an active member of the Red Horsemen.
