Thank you for your support during this difficult time. Please enhance this tribute to Jake by adding your memories and photos.


Jake, whenever anyone saw you, you would brighten their day with your smile.

I did not know James Hoffman. He and I have Rolling Green residency in common. But, I am a parent and a retired educator and I feel such a sense of saddness that James was taken from us at such an early age. I guess an angel was needed.
Please accept my deepest and most sincere condolences and know the family is in my prayers.

Dear Dave and Anne and family,

Dave, I worked with you many years ago at New England Sinai Hospital in Stoughton. Its been a long time , but I still remember the Hoffmans as a great family in Stoughton. Its so clear through the comments and stories that Jake was raised to be a good man like his dad.Please accept my condolences on the loss of your son Jake. You will be in my thoughts and prayers and I hope that you will find strength during this difficult time.
