Condolences to the family on the loss of a bright spark in this world. Jake was my first cousin once-removed. My mother, Betty Tevis Goodpaster, was his first cousin. She shared many fond memories of visiting Jake and all his siblings growing up in Kent Indiana. I finally got to know Jake and Jane and Marilinda once Eric and I had a young family. Here is a special photo of Jake speaking with our daughter Maggie in January of 2000. I was hosting a Mardi Gras theme potluck in Mexico Beach. Babs, Ginger and Linda were also at the party, along with my folks. Jake always called Maggie "Bugsy" because he played a trick with a bug ice cube that she took exception to when she was about three. She w...as wagging her finger at him and saying, "NO MORE BUGS!" But on this day there was only a giant lollipop - no bugs!Read more

I have fond memories of Jake from childhood. His family were neighbors with my Aunt and Uncle Don and Maxine when they lived on Maple Street. May you find peace and comfort during this time.
