My personal approach in life is to give more than I take. Being able to work alongside Jake and his family to bring his vision to life in the communities he has played in over the years has been truly remarkable. The most rewarding part of my job is being able to connect with special individuals across the country and making them a part of the JPF family – what we’ve been able to get out of it has been more than we ever anticipated.
