Many prayers and healing wishes to Jake's family as well as the Willis Family. I met Jake a year or more ago thru Shelby, his girlfriend and recent Fiance. The thing that most impressed me about Jake was his ability to smile at everything and made you smile in return.
His love for Shelby was evident in everything he did, a most pleasant and caring individual towards her.
I will continue to pray for all involved in this terrible tragedy.
TIna Holmes, friend of Tammy and Gene Willis.

It is such a blessing to see all the comments about Jake. I feel that not knowing him personally is my loss. I know in my heart he was a great child and young man. He obviously was an angel here! Betty Rose and her children that I know are so very special to me. The knowledge of you all in pain that has no description, burdens that seem too heavy to carry and tears that won't seem to stop

I worked with Jake very briefly at the Holiday Inn Tifton. I remember him as a very pleasant, humorous and highly ambitious young man. My heart goes out to his family.
