Hi I'm Jake

I'm am undergraduate, I've lived around the world, Portland is my home, I freestyle ski, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Jamaica, Norway, Benin, Washington DC, Utah, Oregon. These are all places Ive lived. I love skiing, and I am an undergraduate at BYU. I'm 19 and I am currently serving a 2 year mission for the Mormon church. I have an older sister, and younger brother and sister. I did track in high school and was on the school newspaper.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and have many times questioned some of the teachings the church is built on. For me, however, it comes down to the fact that I know the moral standards the church has and upholds are correct. I know that this is how I want to raise my family, and I believe that if I follow the teachings of the church I will be able to attain true happiness.

How I live my faith

I regularly participate in service activities, share my testimony and act as an example for others I interact with. I am currently serving a mission in the Benin, Cotonou mission in West Africa.
