Dear Meyer Family, I am so very sad to hear of Jake's passing. I will always remember him as fun loving 6th grader. Your family has been and will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. In His love,
Kathy Reisinger, September 2, 2019 Joel and I are broken hearted to hear this tragic news. We so enjoyed meeting you both at Angie’s wedding and having such an enjoyable conversation about your children. We are so very sorry. Michele Mettner & Joel Reinoehl , September 1, 2019 Karlyn and Scot, Holding you close in my thoughts and hoping you are doing OK. Please accept my condolences. I wish I saw this earlier. I really wanted to be there for you guys yesterday. Pourang Fard, September 1, 2019 I am devastated for you and your loss. Although there is nothing I can say to ease your pain at this time, I pray that the Lord sends you the peace that passes all understanding, and He covers you and your family with His grace, peace and love. You will see him again. If there is anything that I can do, please let me know. Jesse Money, September 1, 2019 I wouldn’t have been able to go through English II at Collin without you. We miss you. Fly high. Prayers to you and your family. Flavio Calderon, September 1, 2019 My heart breaks with you all and we offer so many prayers for your family. I have so many fond memories of Jake in my class and I will remember how every “B” day morning he would always find a way to make me laugh. Lifting you all up in prayer! —-The Kent Family Katie Kent, August 31, 2019 Very sorry to hear about your loss. Prayers for you. Vidhu Sharma, August 31, 2019 You are all in my prayers. There is no greater pain than losing a child. Lynette Gray, August 31, 2019 Jake was a one of a kind soul. His energy, love and his ability to change the mood in a room with just his bright presence will never be topped. I’ll never forget him being my date for my junior year homecoming because I was the only one in my group who didn’t have one. He made the night so special and my friend group STILL talks about that homecoming because of his energy and jokes. Always putting others before himself, he was the definition of selfless. It’s no surprise that my last memory of Jake was him helping an elderly man that had fallen down in a parking lot during the summer. He will forever have a place in my heart. I can’t wait to see you again.. and when I do I’m still going to give you crap for not liking Snuffers cheese fries. I’ll think of you always, J. Fly high angel. Ali Smilie, August 30, 2019 I spent many hours with Jake out on the football field as an athletic trainer, and he truly was such a light in this world. He had such an amazing spirit, and I am blessed to have known such a kind person who took time out of his day to make, not only myself, but many others smile. I hope he knows how often he made my day just by doing something silly or making fun of things with me. I am thankful to God that Jake and I crossed paths, and my heart breaks for his family. You are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. Much love to you all. Ansley Ambery , August 30, 2019 Scott: My heart has ached for you and your family ever since I heard the news of your loss. May the fondest memories you shared with Jake keep him forever close to your heart and offer comfort and strength as you mourn for him. God bless you all!!!
Kathy McAllister, August 30, 2019 Jake was and will always be one of the most radiant spirits I have ever had the privilege of knowing. Freshman year at Wakeland High School, we instantly became friends in algebra. My “bonding” buddy (an inside joke), quickly turned in to an amazing friend. I will never forget the positive and approachable attitude that he always carried. I loved and cared about you so much, Jake. I will see you on the other side, my friend. My prayers and condolences go out to the Meyer family and friends. Heather Jones, August 30, 2019 When Jake was in 3rd grade, his teacher assigned him to pray for me. Every month, he’d stop by my 6th grade classroom and ask how he could pray for me. That year I asked him to pray for my future husband (who I had not met yet). At the end of the school year, he made me a green bookmark and wrote that he loved praying for me and my future husband. Years later, I had the privilege to teach Jake 6th grade History and Bible. His joy and desire to learn were contagious. He was a true friend to anyone that needed a friend. After 6th grade, Jake moved to TX and was greatly missed at Orangewood Christian School. I still have his green bookmark.
Julie (Weathersby) Anderson, August 30, 2019 Jake was so kind to everyone he met. He had an amazing spirit and a smile that would brighten any room. He was a true joy to be around. Jake will be missed by many. Prayers to all his friends and family. Shannon and Andy Bradshaw Shannon Bradshaw, August 30, 2019 I am so very sorry for your loss. My daughter Maddie cheered and danced over the years with Jake. I have two daughters at Reedy and one told me yesterday how many people love him. I noticed the word "brother" frequently here. What a special young man to be called a brother by so many. Your family is being prayed for by so many. May God comfort each member of your family during the day and during the night. With love,
Kristina Brown, August 29, 2019 Dear Scott, I have no words that would ever console you on such a great loss. I pray that your faith and loving memories of your beautiful son will ultimately comfort you and your family in the weeks to come. I am praying for you. Sincerely, Char Charlene Ryan, August 29, 2019 Scott, Karlyn and Family - I was deeply saddened to hear of Jake's passing. Jake went to Cobb and Wakeland with my son, Colby, where they played sports together. I remember Jake as a funny, respectful, happy young man who always seemed to bring energy to those around him. We were fortunate to have him at our house his sophomore year for the Prestonwood Freedom Weekend (photo attached). He was a great young man! Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with your family. We pray that in time you will experience the peace and comfort that only He can provide.
Bryan Delashaw, August 29, 2019

Jake will forever be our guardian angel. My prayers go out to everyone who was close to Jake and the Meyer Family. Grace Anderson, August 29, 2019 Jake was always my go to during my freshman and sophomore years. He was always the one to cheer me up during bad days and was the light of the class.

We love and miss you more than you know.

Michelle Stafford, August 29, 2019 There was no one like Jake. Jake was one of my closest friends. He was so genuine, kind, caring, loving and many more things. He always knew how to make me laugh and he always cared for others more than himself. I saw how he interacted with others and how he made such a positive impact on everyone’s lives. I always looked up to him as a big brother. He had such a great energy and soul, and he was always the life of the party. He helped with everything I needed, and he even took me to my cheer banquet so I was not dateless. He did things to make others happy. I know he is in a better place now. Many prayers for him, and his family. I love you Jake. Rest In Peace.
Zoie Washington , August 29, 2019 I’m thinking about your family and praying for each of you. I know there are no words...Jake was clearly loved by so many. I know his memory will be carried forward. He was one of a kind. Jamie Brannagan, August 29, 2019 Karlyn, Scott & family, Oh dear Lord, what can one say! This breaks our hearts for you! We only got to see him for such a small amount of his life in Heathrow. He was such the handsome lil one! I can’t imagine the pain and hurt in your lives right now. If there is anything your family needs, besides our devoted prayers, love and support, please let us know. If you need a getaway afterwards, please know you are welcome here anytime! Hugs and love to you all.
Cathy Masters, Mark & Amanda , August 28, 2019 Jake was the kindest, most genuine person I could ask for as a friend. He could always cheer me up and always had a story to tell. He was full of laughter and joy. He was like a big brother to me and always had my back! I love you with all my heart Jake Meyer and we will meet again!
Randi Reum, August 28, 2019
Jake was an amazing person with a beautiful soul like no other. No one lit up a room like he always did and his absence is truly noticeable.

Amanda Wright, August 28, 2019 I was never close friends with Jake but he still had a huge impact on my life.

I loved that guy and he will always hold a special place in my heart.

I have considered Jake one of my closest friends for a while now, just as most of us did. He was the happiest, most out-going friend I had and he made any situation a fun one. He always had such a pure heart and was always there for me no matter what. I will never forget any of the amazing memories we shared together and he will forever hold a piece of my heart. Sending prayers to the rest of his friends and family, and may Jake rest in eternal peace. <3
