Venmo Accounts and Other Info of Those Directly Affected
Jake Evans and his son Jase
Jake Evans has lived in Lahaina for a decade plus. He has helped out many who needed it.
He’s a master mechanic and was always seen running around helping people when their car broke down and needed to get somewhere. He’s the reason that many people in Lahaina were able to get to work when their car wasn’t running.
Many times, he wouldn’t ask for payment. He could get just about anything running, even if he didn’t have the right tools.
He and his 8 year old son Jase lost all of their belongings, their home and everything they owned in the fire.
Jake always helped when someone needed him.
Please Help Jake and Jase now.
