On behalf of the YMCA of Metropolitan Washington, our President/CEO Angie Reese Hawkins, Board of Directors, staff and the thousands of children served by the YMCA, we are deeply saddened by the loss of a dear friend, Jake.
We are indeed thankful to the family of Jake for allowing him to be a part of our lives and for giving the spirit of life learning and always seeking to discover more. Whether he was teaching, training, coaching or working with our children at the YMCA Loudon County Program Center, you could always see the excitement in Jake and know the impact he had on the individuals he touched. He was and will always be an inspiration to the work we do to encourage our young people to aspire to be phenomenal individuals.
