Wyoming

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Jake McKinnon, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend. Born on November 14, 1952, in Saint Paul, Minnesota, Jake's life was marked by dedication, resilience, and unwavering faith.
 
 Jake’s journey was one of continuous growth and accomplishment. Graduating from Hill Murray High School with the Class of 1970, he pursued his passion for electrical work by studying at St. Paul Technical College. Over the years, Jake honed his skills and ascended to the position of Master Electrician within Union IBEW 110, where he dedicated himself to his craft with excellence and integrity.
 
 On June 6, 1987, Jake exchanged vows with his cherished spouse, Sandra McKinnon, in a union filled with love and devotion. Together, they shared countless memories, dreams, and a profound connection that was a source of strength and joy to both of them.


 Throughout his life, Jake found solace and purpose in His faith, embracing the teachings of Jesus Christ and actively sharing his message of love and compassion with those around him. He embarked on transformative mission trips, including one to an orphanage in Mexico, where he selflessly served others and exemplified the principles he held dear.

 

Jake is preceded in death by his loving parents, Jim and Eleanore McKinnon; brother-in-law, Denny Olson.  He is survived by his wife, Sandy; children, Jeff, James (Becca), Rachel (Jim); three grandchildren, siblings, Jeanne Olson, Nora (Jeff) Blevins, Marti McKinnon, Ann (Stan) McKinnon; other family and friends
 
 In honor of Jake's memory and the legacy he leaves behind, relatives and friends are invited to attend a memorial service at 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, June 26, 2024 at Crossroads Church, 17445 Notre Dame Street NE, Columbus, Minnesota.  The family will greet friends one hour prior to the service at the church.


 Jake's presence will be deeply missed, but his spirit and impact will forever resonate in the hearts of those who had the privilege of knowing him. In the quiet moments of reflection, may we find peace in the memories we shared with John, and may his enduring love continue to guide and inspire us all.
