Ow, this is painful. Jake was one of the first connections I had with diving on Bonaire. He made shore diving easy and fun. Great memories of being at his house at Small Wall dive site. My condolences to his wife and family. RIP Jake.
I'm deeply sorry to hear of Jake's passing. Bonaire Talk and the underwater webcams are an integral part of my scuba certification story, and I had imagined I would have a chance to go back one day and tell him how much his kindness meant to me.
I did my certification in Bonaire in 2001; Jake still had the webcam off his SmallWall home, and I really wanted to celebrate getting certified by having my family and friends at home see my first 'real' dive. So I coordinated with Jake to have access. And he met my traveling companions and me at the gate with a bottle of champagne -- gave entry tips, island tips and was just completely generous of spirit. Rest in Peace, Jake.
My condolences to his family.
