Quote from Jake’s supervisor:

“Jake is a great asset to our team. He is very dependable. Whether he is a Supervisor at the REC Center or Tomaso Sports Park he has the knack to think ahead for the different situations that may occur. When Jake is on the schedule, I don’t need to worry about anything, he can handle all problems. You don’t have to tell Jake what to do, he just does it, no questions asked. Great team player.” – Chris Pacana, Athletic Coordinator
