R.I.P Jake

I had a really good friend of mine that I used to work with at Training Table pass away this Easter. He died in a car accident. It's really surreal at this point. It doesn't seem real. Even though I havent talked to him in a little while, that year that I did get to know him was awesome! He was a really great person, and I really miss him.
One of my favorite memories of him was at work. MariEllen's brother Justin has the funniest and loudest laugh you'll ever hear, and Jake could imitate it PERFECTLY! Good times at the Training Table. Also, 4th of July on the roof of work. We had the perfect view of the fireworks.
