Sandy, Bruce and families,

We were saddened to hear of Jake's passing. I have many memories of the time I spent working for you all. I truly felt like part of the family and had much respect for Jake. I learned a lot during my time at Granite Importers. Our sincere condolences to all. May he rest in peace on a big Ford LTL 9000.

Jake was one of the best men I have ever known. His contributions to the granite industry are legendary, his work ethic unmatchable and his dedication to his family and employees inspirational. He was the real deal and he will be missed!
