About Jake

     Jake Brandon Harris was a 19-year-old junior at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. A native to Arizona, Jake was majoring in business administration and aspired to pursue a career in law. Because of his hard work and ambition, he was on track to graduate with a Bachelor's and Master's degree in just four years. Jake's love and commitment to education were evident in his work ethic and classwork. To properly honor Jake's legacy, the Jake Brandon Harris Scholarship was created to celebrate and encourage other students who share his enthusiasm for learning.
