Jake Burke Memorial Fundraiser

Jake truly loved the outdoors.  He was very fortunate to have Park West right in his backyard.  You could always find him shooting hoops, playing catch or tossing around a Frisbee.  For many of us, Park West holds wonderful memories of our youth and reminds us of the good times we’ve shared with each other that we will never forget.

With the help of the Oregon Park District, plans are underway to purchase a memorial tree and park bench, providing a lifelong memory in Jake’s name at Park West.

Any donation will help bring us one step closer to reaching our goal and is so very much appreciated.

If anyone has any questions regarding the memorial or donations, please do not hesitate to contact either Chris Grimm or Derek Gutfrucht at any time.

Jake touched the hearts of so many people throughout his lifetime.  We all loved Jake—let us all come together and do something special in his name.
