Jake Marrazzo was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in January of 2011, a few days before his 8th birthday.  Jake is now a funny and creative 19-year-old. He is in his sophmore year at Wheaton College in MA this year!  He just loves life and hanging with his college friends! Jake is a published author and just finished the draft of his second book. He is also a short film maker.

Jake has an older sister Katelynn and brother Cletus. Jake is also an Uncle to Ellie Marie & Tyler who he loves to spend time with! He really is a funny & inspiring kid!

We have a tough diagnosis to deal with and we decided to make every day as amazing as it can be for Jake! We also have thrown lots of energy into fundraising. We look to find a cure…4Jake’s Sake!

Here is a slideshow we made on YouTube you can check it out and learn more about Jake and his family!
