Jake Schonhoft is the younger brother of J.T. and Amber Schonhoft. He was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and moved to the country in Southern Indiana when he was very young. He has a huge heart and would do anything for anyone. He has suffered quite a few accidents in his life. He’s a tough kid and has always pulled through in every tough situation he’s been through. He’s been through quite a few hardships in life, including but not limited to, losing our father in 2006. Jake was very strong through the loss of Papa Tom, as Amber and J.T. were off to college. He was there through it all.
Jake is currently a Mechanical Engineering student at Purdue University and a brother at Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. He’s in his last year at Purdue gearing up for his senior design project and working at a company in Fort Wayne on an internship. Jake has a huge support system at Purdue.
Jake is pretty much good at everything he does and loves being adventurous with his older brother out West on snowboarding trips. He actually set up a trip for this January with a group of friends to Breckenridge. It looks like we will have to alter those plans a little to accommodate Jake’s new condition.

Thanks for reading!
Update: the winter trip I planned was actually to Keystone, and I was released from rehab at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital just in time (December 27, 2012) to make the trip in January 2013; although, I was still battling a lot of cognitive issues and still wearing a neck brace – I definitely was unable to snowboard then…but I’m now back to snowboarding just as well as I could before my accident (of course, I wear a helmet).
I finally graduated from Purdue University in December 2014, after attempting and failing in fall 2013 and spring 2014 – THIRD TIMES A CHARM!
