“The last time my dad was healthy in mind, body, and spirit, he was here,” shared Jake. “My dad always wanted me to know more about Norway, where I came from. He was most proud of being a Norwegian American. I’m sure I would have come here a lot sooner if it wasn’t for what happened to my dad.”
Jake is convinced his father was murdered and he decided to come to Norway partially in search of closure and peace.
“Everything that I learned over here about him helps me to feel closer to him. I’m closer to him here than I am in America,” Jake revealed.
