About the Mission:

Patriot Guard Riders has been requested by the family of James Blaauboer to participate in his military honors funeral services.  Jake, 27, died suddenly on November 11, 2022.

Jake was a graduate of Shenendehowa High School. He attended Hudson Valley Community College and was a student at the University of Notre Dame at the time of his death. He was a United States Army veteran and worked for a time as a welder.

Jake was an enthusiastic athlete, consistently running on Cross Country and Track teams while a student. He challenged himself by climbing several of the Adirondack high peaks, Mount Washington in New Hampshire as well as Pikes Peak in Colorado. He was a deep thinker and loved a good debate, particularly about issues of philosophy and politics. He enjoyed reading and appreciated all genres of music. Jake was a beautiful old soul whose memory will be treasured.
