He was a graduate of Millville High School, and worked endlessly as an entrepreneur; truly living life the way he wanted.

Jake was passionate about sports, spending seasons as a Sixers season ticket holder. He spent every Sunday in the fall watching the Atlanta Falcons. He traveled the country, lived in Florida and Philadelphia, and lived his life to the absolute fullest. Jake was the brightest soul in any room he was in, and changed the trajectory of every life he entered. No amount of words can describe how much he will be missed. He will be with us forever, plus one.
