My sincere condolences to the Nodolf family. It is very obvious what a beautiful family Jake was a part of. Jake and his family will be in my thoughts and prayers. My daughter and cousin both presently suffer from Lyme disease. It is my hope that Jake's courage and beauty will inspire all of us to never give up the fight to make our medical community admit that Lyme is a disease and one that must be honestly addressed.

Martha Young left a message on May 5, 2016:
So very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this sad time. The Lyme community is very much like a family, coast to coast, even world-wide. There are no words to describe the heartbreak, the grief of losing Jake, too young, too soon. Yes, heaven has gained an angel, but please know Jake's spirit lives on among us as our motivation to educate the public as well as the medical community, and the scientists and researchers for better tests, treatments, and cures for Lyme disease and tick-borne illnesses. May God bless you and give you strength, love and peace.

What a gorgeous man. What a loving caring beautiful family. I am so sorry that this has happened to your family. We are a family of 3 lyme warriors. We understand everything and have tremendous sympathy for everyone. I wish the world will hurry and let awareness be seen. So many could be helped so much more. This is such a loss. I am so sorry. He was very strong as I could tell through the lovely video tribute. Jake will always be in my thoughts and has given me strength to try to break the awareness barrier. My family truly knows what Jake and all of his wonderful caregiving family has been through as we are living it now. Along with many other frustrated 'scared out of their minds' families who get to little too late. I am sorry, deepest sympathies, David, kim and roy

Sandy Kane left a message on March 21, 2016:
Denny and Kathy, the loss of a child is the ultimate tragedy but the long time suffering of this child is equally hard to bear. You have been through more than most could tolerate. My prayers for you is that you eventually know the peace that Jake has now found. Bless you and your family.
Katy and Garth Errington left a message on March 21, 2016:
Denny, Kathy and Family, May God give you peace, strength and comfort during this difficult time of the great loss of your son, Jake. It isn't easy losing a child. In 1992 my younger 24-year-old son died while on a Special Operations U.S. Air Force military training mission. The helicopter on which he was a flight engineer crashed into the Great Salt Lake in Utah. 12 men died that night. Garth's daughter died five years ago of breast cancer at the age of 50 leaving behind a husband and 10 year old son. Through all this we've learned that you will get through it but not over it. Our prayers continue to be with both of you.

The news of his passing reached me immediately upon my return. I send my profound sympathy, sadness, and support. As we in the EJH family shared in the joy of his birth, remembering the day we sent you from school at noon--insisting you make it to the hospital on time, similarly, we share in the sorrow of his passing. The video was the most touching chronicle of such a handsome, talented, well-loved, prince of a man---deserving of a special kingdom. It is now his. Sending my thoughts, prayers, and love,

This is far too tragic that a small bug can kill someone in this day and age in North America! This just should not happen here. Governments must take this far more seriously than they are!! I went for a walk and brought two back into a McDonalds that I visited that day, it's just too easy, they are everywhere. My Deepest Sympathy for Jake's family. I hope his untimely death will result in the start of some serious research to find a vaccine for Lyme disease.

Words cannot describe how terribly sorry I am for your loss. My daughter and I have been battling Chronic Lyme for over a decade. It is an insidious disease, and the lack of attention it receives from the medical community is woefully inadequate. Please know that your son, brother, uncle, and beloved family member was not only a beautiful person, as evidenced by his pictures and accomplishments, but an absolute warrior for battling this illness. May the rest of us in the Lyme community continue to educate others and spread awareness in Jake's amazingly brave legacy. My deepest and most sincere sympathy to all his family and friends.

So heartbreaking and touching. What a lovely boy and then man he was. I have Lyme disease and understand the suffering he must have gone through although to each person it is an individual struggle.

I'm very sorry for your loss. I went misdiagnosed from 1988 until 2012 and am battling chronic lyme, bartonella, babesia, and a few other infections. I hope you can find comfort in knowing his pain and suffering is over. I was planning on coming to offer a hug and my support but am too ill to make it today. Please know he and your family are in our prayers. We will take a few minutes of silence to honor him and all those we have lost and we will continue the fight for recognition and treatment ‚ô° God Bless

Patti Murphy left a message on March 15, 2016:
Denny and Kathy - I was so sad to hear of the loss of your son. I can only imagine that the death of a child is every parent's worst fear. When I read in his obituary that his goal was to spread knowledge and awareness about his health condition, it certainly reminded me of all of the years that his Mama spread knowledge and awareness in her Health classes in AASD. Although I am certain that I am a sad replacement for you, I have certainly thought of you often as I teach Health in the district. This is my 26th year. The district was sure blessed to have had you! Again, my condolences.

Gary & Lou Ann Cook, Traci, Todd, and Tori left a message on March 15, 2016:
Denny, Kathy, and Nicole, and other family members and friends of Jake, I was so sorry to wake up this morning and learn through Facebook via Tori , now in Arizona, about Jake's years of pain and suffering and of his passing. My heart hurts! I remember so well those beautiful, huge brown eyes and Jake's sweet heart. Jake, though younger, played big brother to Tori when they were in their preschool days. He showed an inner strength and quiet confidence and was kind and caring. I remember babysitting him and he was such a sweet, tall young boy. He and Annette and Tori and Nicole shared many happy hours together in those early years. We pray that God will comfort you all with love and peace as you go through your grief, pain and loss. We pray you find these inspired words of God of comfort, "For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16 Much love to you across the miles.
