BENEFITING: MAKE-A-WISH FOUNDATION OF CENTRAL CALIFORNIA
ORGANIZER: MAKE-A-WISH FOUNDATION OF CENTRAL CALIFORNIA
EVENT DATE: Sep 18, 2016
Jake is 25 and has lived in Fresno his whole life. This is his first year as a Shoe Guy for Wine Women & Shoes.
Jake is a Fresno State student majoring in Business. When he is not in the classroom, he works for Caltronics as a Sales Administrator. Outside of school and work, Jake enjoys playing tennis, running, and checking out the local food and craft beer scene. He keeps a collection of sports cards, but his favorite sport to watch is football—you can always find him rooting for the Green Bay Packers. Jake visited Ireland a couple years ago and loved it, and he hopes to be able to return soon.
Jake has previously worked with Make-A-Wish through marketing classes and as a volunteer for several local events. Through being involved with Make-A-Wish, he discovered that he really loved seeing what the organization does and how children’s lives are impacted. He is excited to help in a new way through being a Shoe Guy!
