Help Jake Stachovak

Those of us who have been kayaking San Diego for some time will remember Jake Stachovak. He worked at Aqua Adventures for a number of years before returning back to Wausau, Wi. You also might remember him from his epic 5,000-mile kayaking trip, that he chronicled back in 2010. Unfortunately, Jake has been fighting cancer for the past few years. Jake’s cancer has become very aggressive and he is dying. His liver is overrun and it is spreading all over. Some folks have asked how they can help Jake. There is a GoFundMe that was set up for him by his students and staff at the high school he teaches at.

This amazing photo was taken by Bill Thompson at the 2014 The Gales – Storm Gathering is of the inimitable Jake Stachovak.
