Jacob (Big Jake) Hunter Godin of Jackson, GA passed away Monday, July 5, 2021, at the age of 27. Jake, you are our SUN and everything we do revolves around you. You brought sunshine to everyone you met. Jake, you are our whole heart and on Monday, July 5, 2021, our heart stopped beating. At the age of 27, this was way too soon. The world was brighter with you in it big guy. He is survived by his loving parents Linda and Jared Godin: his grandparents Natalie (Bubbie) Godin and Barbara Thornton: Great Uncle Danny: Aunt Caryn, Uncle Joe and Aunt Hillary: Aunt Brenda and Aunt Pam: and many cousins whom he loved dearly. He is also survived by his beloved godchildren, Mikayla, Will and Savannah West: their parents, Chris and Kathryn West – They so loved their “Big Jake”. Bane his beloved dog will also miss him and his hugs dearly, and there are way too many friends to list who he loved with his whole heart. Jake did not meet a stranger, as an only child we never hesitated to take him anywhere, whether it was a simple Jackson Lake Association meeting with all adults, or a trip designed for his age. At an early age we took him to New England (Jared’s roots), and he quickly became a major Red Sox, Patriots, Bruins, and Celtic fan. His world revolves around family, friends, and sporting events. There will be a viewing at Sherrell Westbury Funeral home on Friday, July 16, 2021, from 4:00 P.M. - 8:00 P.M. for family and friends to say their goodbyes. His Celebration of Life services will be July 17, 2021, at Jackson United Methodist church at 1:00 P.M. Thank you so much for your love and support for our family during this difficult time. It means the world to us. This community means the world to us.
