Jake was born on October 25, 1994 in Redlands CA. He was a bright inquisitive child who loved books, singing and acting. He and his sister would create stories and costumes and put on shows. His friends remember him for his goofy antics, loving kindness, and radiant smile. He took piano lessons for many years and won awards at the Bach competition and young musicians competition at CSUSB. Later he studied the guitar and enjoyed composing electronic music. Jake had tremendous compassion for others and a special love for animals.

Jake attended Redlands Adventist Academy from K-12 from where he graduated in 2013. He was active in sports and played flag football, cross country and his favorite, soccer. He earned his BS in Biology from La Sierra University in 2021, which he started at UCSD. While at UCSD he joined the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. At the time of his passing, he was attending Loma Linda University in a Masters program in Health Informatics in which he found a new passion.
