...During our time together, Jake displayed great communication skills in what was required for submission to FEMA as well as providing timely, accurate and professional service. When Jake was first assigned to St. John's, I was immediately impressed with his technical skills as well as his vast knowledge in disaster recovery... Jake was a pleasure to work with because of his amazingly positive attitude and eagerness to stick tightly to deadlines which provided St. John's with a timely resolution and recovery of expenses... I am absolutely confident that Jake and his team would be a great fit for any future disaster recovery assignments.
