Jake Hodge was 12 years old and an amazing athlete, Christian and part of a loving family when the Lord called him home on June 21, 2008.
To honor his memory, this site has been established and we request that you please post your memories and stories here. Your comments may include an array of memories or thoughts, including life lessons learned through your relationship with Jake Hodge and his family.
Jake's family wants other children to come to know Christ through their story about Jake. They are going to publish a book called, "The Jake Hodge Legacy: It's not what you take, it's what you leave behind."
"I always tried to instill that in my son, and in other children as a coach," said Jake's father, Denis Hodge, who is a high school baseball coach. "The only way to justify Jake's death is if we help win more children to Christ."
