realize it until the day I learned he died, but the biggest thing I
learned from my former college professor Jake Highton wasn't about
showed me that you can be build a legacy on being unapologetically
fascinating. The things we're honoring him for now are the same
things a lot of us hated him for.
when he gave me my lowest grade in a college course. I hated when
he chewed me out for being late to class. I hated his red pen
draped all over my assignments.
times do you think people talked bad about him or said he should go
easier on his students? Probably hundreds. But did that change him?
truly himself until has last day. And we loved him for
probably pull out a red pen and mark up this post if he could.
Thank you for everything, Jake.
