He worked as an Environmental Specialist at New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. Jake was an avid traveler, an accomplished athlete, and passionate nature enthusiast. He loved hiking, snowboarding, camping and just about any outdoor activity. He was a lover of all things extraterrestrial and looked forward to meeting some of them. Jake loved animals, especially dogs. He had the biggest heart and was loved by all who knew him. His sparkling brown eyes and beautiful smile lit up a room. He was the life of the party wherever he went. His loyalty and love for his family and friends knew no bounds.
