Jake Augustus

November 4, 1993 - December 11, 2017

Fly with the angels, Jake...

Losing a loved one is the hardest thing to go through and the costs associated with a proper burial just makes it that much harder.

I’m Jake’s Aunt Tracey and when I got the somber call Monday morning from his sister Ashley that Jake lost his battle with depression, there were no words. Just ear, piercing screams of agony that this happened.

His Mom, Beth, was and always will be my best friend and to think of her losing her son, her child, was any parent’s worst nightmare. Her uncontrollable sobs and the never ending stream of tears goes straight through your heart.

His fiancé and their children desperate for it all to be a dream only to be faced with reality...

While everyone in the family tries to wrap their minds around this, we are faced with substantial funeral costs that have to be paid upfront and no way to cover it at this time. We ask that you donate anything that you can so that we can give Jake the proper burial and bring some sort of peace to the family.

We’ve received a few pledges previously and I know it’s tough with Christmas but the money is desperately needed before Jake’s service this coming Monday, unfortunately.

Thank you in advance and God Bless - we truly appreciate your generosity.
