One donor's story: Jake Jennings

  • Coon Rapids
  • Organ , Tissue , Eyes
  • Deceased Donor: 2007

Jake was a loving,energetic guy that wore his heart on his sleeve. Jake’s smile could light up a room. Jake’s compassion for others was beyond amazing. He loved life and would do back flips off almost everything. As a child Jake wanted to be Batman!!

Jake loved his job, as well as spending time with his family, friends and girlfriend. Jake enjoyed playing video games, hackie sack and making pottery in school….

I, as his mother, am very proud that my son had chosen to be a donor on his own, and I think many other children given the opportunity to become a donor, would be willing to make that decision. Just for the compassion that comes from donating.
