Jacob Thomas West “Big Jake” of West Salem, Wisconsin, unexpectedly decided to leave us on January 15, 2020, at the young age of 24. Little did he know how much he would be missed by his family, friends, & co-workers.
Jake was born to Shadley & Tammy West on April 6, 1995, and raised in Bangor, Wis. He graduated from High School Class of 2012. Jake proudly worked for over 5 years as a Field Technician at La Crosse Sign Company amongst many caring co-workers. He will be missed deeply by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, good family and friends.
Jake is survived by his mother Tammy; his 3 sisters: Tarynn (Pat), Jamie, & Olivia; & his beloved German Shepherd Sam.
It is comforting for loved ones to know that Jake is now at peace with many angels in Heaven: his father Shad; his Grandparents Stan & Lois West, Larry Starch, Kathy Engebretson, & his Aunt Karla.
