I have some sad news to relay to those of you who knew Jakey from SE Talk here. Jakey (real name, Amy Klein) passed away this morning after a battle with cancer. Amy found her way from SE proper over to the Serious Eats Water Cooler on Facebook, where her sense of humor and recipes earned her a good many friends.
As one of those friends over on the SE Cooler group said:
"Amy was a huge fan of milkshakes, especially vanilla ones. Several of us have decided to go get one today, in her honor -- just an idea if anyone needs a tangible way to toast the memory of a really great person."
I will also leave this image here, which she posted to her FB timeline in June. I think it illustrates her humor well:
Donna Currie (dbcurrie) was close to Amy and said she would be providing memorial information as soon as she gets it. I suppose the best way to get that info would be to join the SE Water Cooler group. Email me if you'd like an invite: ak [at] adamkuban dot com
