My Tribute:Jake was a beautiful person and our family has received so many wonderful tributes honoring him. I love him and miss him more than words can convey. He was kind, humble, loving, and hilarious to name a few attributes. I want other families to know, you aren’t alone and also to know 23 million people within the United States are living beautiful lives within long-term recovery. Substance use disorder took my brother- he was so much more than his tragic health condition. We need more advocacy and more families to speak up- Recovery is possible- my heart is broken but I can certainly reach others, honor Jake, and send compassion to anyone reading this post.
