Light a Candle
Lake Forest-Dennis Jue
I'm not a boyhood friend of Jacob nor a high school or college buddy. I don't work for Great Scott Tree Service. In fact, I met Jacob for the first time on March 6, 2014. It was during an interview for the City's Tree Management Services contract. The interview lasted about 40 minutes and in a couple of follow-up meetings, I interfaced with Jacob for about another 20 minutes. But in that hour of time spent with Jacob, I could tell how special Jacob was. He had an enthusiasm for his profession and one could sense that carried over in life. From what I've read about Jacob, there is no doubt he was loved very deeply by those who were lucky enough to know him. So I just wanted every employee of GSTS, every boyhood friend, every high school or college buddy, every family member present or in spirit to know that in the one hour of time I knew Jacob, I felt his warmth and enthusiasm for life and can understand how much he will be missed.
I remember helping Dannette my old friend and neighbor baby sit Jeremy and Jake when Scott and Cheryl would go out and have a nice night out. I remember how Dannette would be so excited about helping Scott & Cheryl. I remember how kind and caring she was and proud of stepping up and I remember wanting to go help her. I remember not knowing what to do.. but i picked up clothes, maybe corralled Jake into a safer area or what not.. After that they started to grow faster.. and i remember enjoying our neighborhood as much as i did.. Jake, you ARE part of this neighborhood from back in the day and always will be. The Griffiths family gave life to this neighborhood. .......and no one can ever replace you Jake. Love you... "Mike"
You have always been a wonderful part of the Griffiths Family. First time I met you was when Grant was dating Pam. You were such an inspiration to so many people.
Rest in Peace cuz
May our Lord wrap his arms around you and your family during this time. You will be greatly missed. We will all see you up there!
My dear Griffith family, I have no words to tell you how devastating the news was to me when I heard what happened on Sunday morning. You have all the love and prayers you need in this difficult time. I remembered the day that Jacob came to our jewelry store and told me that he is looking to get engaged and wants to look at engagement rings. How happy and excited he was and when I met his gorgeous wife I knew right away why!!!!. My dear Amanda, as you know he loved you , keep his memories alive, he is watching over you . I am truly sorry for the loss of your father and your brother-in-law as well. I love you and god bless you all.
From the Kindell Family
I never met this family but the Kindell's all speak highly of the Griffith family and the wonderful times they spent with Jacob growing up. We as a family would like to send our condolences and love. If you need anything we are here for you!!!! Ronald, Debbie, David, Jason and Breanne

Jake, I haven't seen you in a few years. And only hit-or-miss since we were kids. But all the memories of my childhood pretty much have you and your family in them. I never had cousins and family growing up, and you all adopted my family into yours for such a long time...so in a way, I feel like I lost a little brother. I have a lot of memories, and can't think of any that aren't good. I think we both owed Christine and Eli apologies for how many times we "married" them...thanks for always being in on that game with me.
I remember the last time I saw you, at your dad and Susan's wedding (I think, or maybe Christmas after) and it had been a while. You had grown up so much, but were still you--funny, sweet and, well, JAKE. :) Didn't feel like much time had passed, though it had. i will always treasure growing up with you, and the fun memories. You are such a special guy, always will be. You are missed already, you are loved by so many. I know you have already been welcomed by God, and have heard "well done, good and faithful servant" but boy I wish it wasn't so soon! Love you Jakey. Miss you.
Jake I will always remember the times we spent playing hoops in the driveway "Snap Snap Clap Clap". I'm fortunate to be your uncle, thank you for being my friend too.
