page is dedicated to the memory of Jake Austin.
Although he walked this earth
for only 14 years, he packed quite a lot of living into those few years. Most
memorials on the web contain little angels and bows, with "Wind Beneath
My Wings" playing in the background....and that's OK. But after
thinking about it, we decided to build this website
the way Jake would have wanted it to look. No cutesy bows here!
I'm sure he would have said, "Yeah, that's cool, Dad." It is
our hope that Jake's friends who visit this page will leave with warm memories
and those who never knew Jake will be enriched by learning a little about him.
Jake was a son, brother, friend, companion, protector, artist, mentor,
musician, comedian, leader and an inspiration.
is one of my favorite photos because Jake and Bert pretty much have the same
look on their faces!
fountain was built in Jake's memory in early 2005.
you have special "Jake" stories or photos to share, or would like to add a
quote to the "Friends" page, please email
them to us below. Or if you just want to say "hi", that's
all, thanks for remembering Jake!
(Jake's dad) &
