Help us bring Jake home.

Our fun kind hearted Jake had been off travelling and living his dream when a few days ago they all came crashing down.

Jake was involved in a freak motorcycle accident which unfortunately was fatal to a mother on the back of the other motorcycle involved, Jake is now having to live with this for the rest of his life but cannot comprehend on how the family of the deceased must feel losing a love one in such a way.

Jake is being held in a prison in Java, he has not been charged with anything as yet and under the details of what happened nor Jake or the other motorcyclist were to blame.

A simple miss calculation or wrong judgement could leave any one of us in the same situation as Jake.

We would like to ask everyone to dig deep and try and help us bring Jake home to Australia to be with his friends and family, we are raising money to assist his family on the travel to Java, hire lawyers and interpreters to help release him!

Please note that the deceased's family have also tried to help Jake. They to know Jake is not to blame and have been visiting him each day bringing food and water.

If you can help in anyway big or small please donate to Help Jake Come Home!!

As Jake would say "live your life to the fullest as you never know what is waiting around the corner"

All help is much appreciated, we just want Jake home. Any remaining funds will be donated to the family of the deceased.

Please keep Jake in your thoughts and send your prayers to the lady who lost her life in this tragedy.
