Jake had a passion for baseball that began at the age of 5 and he played for many great teams throughout the Seattle area,including the NW Bandits and varsity baseball for Kamiak High School.

Jake was kind, caring and a friend to all. He had a goofy sense of humor, always bringing a smile or laugh to those around him, ready with a joke, impersonation,or breaking out into song. Jake cherished the time he spent with his family and friends and he was an amazing big brother to Maddie and William.

Jake is survived by his parents, Autumn and David Snider, his younger brother and sister William and Maddie Snider, loving grandparents Corene and Darrell Stocker, Michael and Victoria Long, Mike and Lynda Voigt, and Glenn and Shelly Hester. He was blessed with a large, loving family that included numerous aunts, uncles and cousins who love him deeply. Jake was a shining star in our family and he will always shine bright in our hearts.

“The mention of my child’s name May bring tears to my eyes, But it never fails to bring Music to my ears. Let me hear the beautiful music of his name It soothes my broken heart And sings to my soul.”

A memorial service and celebration of Jake’s life was held Saturday, August 06, 2016 at Calvary Chapel Lake Stevens, WA. The family would love to have those who come bring their stories and memories of Jake to share.
