Jake loved the great outdoors. His favorite days were with his brothers and friends around a campfire telling and listening to stories. There isn’t a video game out there that Jake hasn’t tried. He was often found having a good time with his brothers and was the most fun. He had a great sense of humor. He was always smiling with a grin that would light up the room. He wanted to make sure that everyone was having a good time. He more than earned his nickname, Jakester the Prankster, by playing pranks and ignoring your personal space all to get a good laugh. He was caring and thoughtful. He loved being with family and having deep discussions about everything. Jake is loved and we miss him.

Jake is survived by his father, Jay Hansen; mother, Terra Snow; brothers, Tyler (Nicole) Hansen, Carson Hansen, Shawn Hansen; and his sister, Brittany Snell.

Jake was preceded in death by his mother, Deborah Chytraus; grandfather, Clark Chytraus; and aunt, Stephanie Pond.

We would like to celebrate Jake and will be having a Memorial Service for him on September 19, 2021, Jake’s 26th birthday. The location is to be announced at a later time. We would love for everyone to join us at that time. Bring your memories to share or comment so we can share them for you.

Jake was one of the first to accept me into a group of kids I never thought I could fit intoI met him in 8th grade and we would hang out at the pavilion at riverview and we'd always joke and chill, going into 10th I seen him only 2 times but he still made me feel like I was apart of something he was a beautiful soul with amazing energy!♥️♥️

I am not known to your family. But I felt compelled to reach out and tell you that I am So Very Sorry for your loss. I am deeply sadden. And my heart go out to you.

I pray that the Lord will be with your family in this time of grief. And give you the knowledge of peace in knowing that Jake is still with you.

God Bless
