Jaakko's Story

Jaakko Naayers
Jaakko Naayers is a young man who loved God, loved his family, loved his friends, loved his schools and enjoyed many sports.  He contracted epilepsy at the age of 14 and suffered a number of seizures through the age of 20.  Although controlled by medication and healthy lifestyle choices, he died in his sleep from SUDEP (sudden unexplained death of epilepsy).
Because Jaakko was loved so much and made all feel comfortable in his presence, many have decided to let the memory of him continue with financial help for sports fees, college fees and epilepsy support and research through donations and scheduled events.
Jaakko Naayers
We are pleased to honor Jaakko’s life because of his choices to overcome many challenges.  With events like this 5K run and other events to follow each year, they will remind us all that each day is new and a gift from God.  Feel free to contact his family through means of media or personal contact for more information and details in any area you may have concerns or need to talk about.
