Wake the Jake
Jake is AWAKE! Jake woke up after 48 days in a coma on April 3rd.
Jake had been in the ICU on life support at Tampa General since 2/24/16 and before that at NHC in Naples since 2/22/16.
Jake came down with a bad case of Bronchitis that turned into Pneumonia which turned into Double Pneumonia after failing to finish his antibiotics. Jake quickly deteriorated and was left in a medically induced coma. He was on life support as he was unable to process oxygen with his lungs and his other organs had failed including his heart, liver and kidneys.
Jake was born in St. Louis in 8/8/1980. He moved with myself and our parents to Minnesota and attended school in Burnsville, Mn before he graduated from Prior Lake High in 1997. He attended the University of Minnesota before joining the Army.
After the Army he moved to Estero, FL and currently resides there. He is a former Collier County Sheriffs Deputy and current computer programmer.
Jake is the father to 6 year old Eva and 10 month old Aiden and married to the amazing Jasmine. All 3 of them need Jake back and we need your help to get him back on his feet again.

Even a single dollar will help him and his family and will go a long way to paying some of his medical bills, purchase medical equipment he'll need in his home and future therapy.
If you've already donated thank you and please share with someone you think might be able to help.
Jake is in and out again between sleep and awake. His ability to focus seems to be for a short amount of time. He is on the trach collar and breathing on his own. I think when he realizes his situation he gets sad. We continue to re-enforce how well he is doing and that he is getting better. We believe the more positive we are with him, the better.
He's got a loooooong road ahead of him and he and his family need lots of help. Please don't stop praying.
