Jake was a man with a huge heart and willingness to share it with everyone he ran into. He loved being a machinist and teaching others about the trade. He was employed at Zeus Industrial Products as well as an instructor at Midlands Technical College. He enjoyed sharing the knowledge of his trade with his wife and kids during family days. He graduated from Rivercrest High School in 2005. He had an affinity for working with his hands and helping out anyone in need. He loved his motorcycle and living a care free lifestyle.

The McHaffey family will be hosting a drive thru "Celebration of Life" for Jacob McHaffey on June 20 from 3-5pm. This will take place in the Coleridge Baptist Church parking lot located off of North County Road 535, just south of the Hwy. 312/18 intersection. Please come by and share a story or two. We do ask that you wear a mask, if possible, for the health of some our family members. We look forward to the fond memories of a life gone too soon.
