The Jake Wilson Memorial Bass Tournament was organized to celebrate the life and legacy of Jake Charles Wilson. Jake passed from this life to the next on August 30th, 2017. He loved the Lord and cherished his children. Jake had a passion for fishing, hunting and singing. He served the Lord with all his heart. In his 34 short years he served as a Children’s Pastor, worked in the Prison Ministry, and led Praise and worship on Sundays. Jake was well respected in the Gas Pipeline Industry, making many friends he came to consider family. We thank the Lord for the relationship we had with Jake and the lasting impact he made in our lives. Until we are reunited in Heaven let us lift others up and choose to speak words of life daily!
