Dear , Melissa and family: Our hearts ache for you in the loss of your son. We have never experienced a loss so tragic as this, so we can only imagine what you must be feeling. We pray for you hearts to heal and to find comfort. Jake was such a wonderful young man, so full of life and promise. He always provided a positive example for everyone around him. We are crying with you and our hearts are mourning. May you find peace and comfort in the knowledge that he is now with God, that he is in no more pain, and that he has received his eternal reward in heaven. The Lord is closest to the broken hearted. (Psalm 34:18) Love, Charletta (Rush), AJ, & Alan Wilson

My heartfelt sympathy for the tragic loss of your precious son. I was Jake’s kindergarten teacher and I remember him as such a happy little fellow, a real sweetheart. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family for God’s encompassing peace and comfort to surround you and sustain you today and in the difficult days ahead.

Sending my deepest condolences for your heartbreaking loss. I was Ms. Delk’s TA in Jake’s K class at Eaton. He was the sweetest and most fun little guy who always loved getting dirty at recess! Jake had a sunny disposition and was so good natured. I do remember him talking about his little sister all the time - he loved her so much. I’m sending prayers for comfort and peace for you all at this indescribable time. I hope that knowing how much Jake was thought of eases some sorrow.

Jake's name was something I heard daily in my house if it was him over spending time with Gus or Gus yelling at him thru a headset gaming. When Gus was struggling with a few issues in California I would call Jake and ask him to rally the boys and help Gus stay on course and he would! He was Gus's bestfriend! Gus sent me a quote last night he said Jake lived by this all the time "those who break the rules are scum, but those who abandon their friends are worse than scum!" We will so miss Jake but I have told Gus and Sophia he will always be a big part of our lives even though he might not be here to spend to with us he gave us a lifetime of memories. Please know Jake was truly Loved by our family!

You are in my heart and my thoughts are with you all. I am sure that Jake always will be with you in your thoughts. Be Strong and God Bless.

I remember how much he loved cars and that was something we had in common. I remember playing Forza with him on the Xbox and talking about cars while we played. I remember going over to his house one time and looking at his set up for racing games and how he had the Ferrari steering wheel and stick shift. I was a little jealous of the set up because of how cool it was. After I moved away for school I didn't play as much Xbox with him and looking back, you never really know or understand how precious a friendship with someone is until they're gone. My heart goes to you, Mr. and Mrs. Mclaughlin and your daughter. I am praying for y'all and pray that God will strengthen and comfort you in this time of hurt and pray that He will show you His plan in all of this.

He was precious. Always smiled at me. And he would ask me the most random cute questions in the back yard, picking cherry tomatoes. I didn’t know until now that his birthday is June 5th. Mine is June 8th. Kindred spirits in another world. My heart breaks for your family. Melissa, Paul, and Bella. I’m so incredibly sorry for your loss and our family is thinking of you all.

Jake, my second brother, I love you with all my heart and I’m so glad that I got the opportunity to be like a big sister to you. Thank you for being the best friend to my little brother that you could be. You always made me smile and laugh, I’m gonna miss you just walking into my house and you sticking your fork in the jambalaya I made and me forcing you to get a bowl, I’m glad you really loved that stuff (only thing i could ever make) You always light up every room you entered, and put a smile on everyone’s face.
