Authorised Biography (Volume 1: Childhood to Advertising Career)
“Jake was very professional in his field of Public Relations and Advertising. He conveyed serious matters with a relaxed mien and charm, was affable and had a great sense of humour; he was a good man.” ~ H.E. John Agyekum Kufuor, former President, Republic of Ghana
“This man, who doubled the ubiquitous plastic chair to cope with his weight, detested violence. But then, of course, he believed he could charm everybody over his point of view with the sheer force of his personality. This, after all, is the man who convinced the whole of Ghana that there was something magical and special about Key soap.” ~ Elizabeth Ohene, Journalist and former Minister of State for Tertiary Education
