When the EPHS opened its headquarters in the City Hall Annex, Jake was appointed Executive Director charged with overseeing the indexing of materials, establishing files and keeping the place open on Thursday afternoons. He was instrumental in getting the Pictorial History of East Point book published, which has been reprinted and is still for sale at the Society. Through donations to his memorial fund, the 'work room' at the Society was dedicated to him with a plaque over the door in September 1998.
