About the Marrazzo Family

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 18-year-old teenager. He is in his senior year at Hudson High School this year!  He just loves life and hanging with the drama society! Jake is a great swimmer and has lots of friends he hangs out with!

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!
