Jake Ryan Nelson, 17, passed away on November 15, 2015 in Bentonville. He was born on March 8, 1998 in Woodward, Oklahoma to Steve and Marlo (Bynum) Nelson.
Jake was a senior at Bentonville High School. He loved his teacher, Ms. Simmons, and all of the aides in his classroom. He loved riding the bus to and from school and was blessed with wonderful bus drivers over the years.
Jake was a precious soul who loved everyone he came in contact with. He was loving, sweet and ornery at times. He always said, "I love you", to those who meant the most to him. He loved his family, especially his little sisters, Beth and Abby Kate, and his dog, Chloe. His favorite place on earth was his "big yellow house."
He would do anything for a spoonful of peanut butter or a Reece's Cup. His life was simple, perfect and should be a reminder to us all about the important things.
He is survived by his parents of Cave Springs; sisters, Beth and Abby Kate of the home; grandparents: Austin Bynum, of El Reno, Oklahoma, Pat Bynum of Cave Springs, Denny and Carole Nelson of Woodward, Oklahoma; great grandmother, Mary Gaston, of Woodward, Oklahoma; aunt, Lori Bynum of Arlington, Virginia; uncles, Jason and his wife, Jessica of Woodward, Oklahoma and Lance and his wife, Tamara of Hot Springs, Arkansas; cousins, Jade, Seryna and Sylvia Nelson of Woodward, Oklahoma and Logan and Chance Nelson of Hot Springs, Arkansas.
We want to thank the amazing doctors and nurses on the Pediatric wing at Northwest Medical Center in Bentonville, for taking such wonderful care of our precious Jake.
Visitation will be on Wednesday, November 18, 2015 from 10:30 until 12:00, at Hunt Chapel in Pinnacle Memorial Gardens, with a funeral service at 12:00. Burial will follow.
Donations can be made in his honor to the Bentonville High School-Jake Nelson Fund, 1801 SE J Street, Bentonville, AR 72712.
