Jake was born on September 25, 1988 in Horicon, Wisconsin to Scott and Nedra (Kuechler) Cikanek. He attended local schools and graduated from Horicon High School in 2007. You could often find Jake working on cars, as he loved to do. Jake looked forward to late November every year because that was deer hunt season in Wisconsin and he never missed a chance to go deer hunting.
Jake is survived by his mom, Nedra Cikanek; his sister, Samantha Cikanek, both of Horicon; his paternal grandparents, Ozzie and Myrna Cikanek of Hartford; his maternal grandma, Juliana Kuechler of West Bend; his aunt, Michelle (Peter) Groom of Iron Ridge; his close friend, Jared Apfelbeck of Burnett; other relatives and many friends. Jake was preceded in death by his dad, Scott Cikanek and his maternal grandpa, George Kuechler.
