About Jake Anthony Villapando Audet
Jake Audet was a student in CCBC’s Associates of Applied Science Degree Automotive Program, and anticipated graduating in August of 2021. Enthusiastic and always passionate about his art, he either spent hours behind the lens of his camera, working on his car, writing lyrics, creating his own sound, or just making those around him laugh.
Beyond being a creator, he was a man of practical attitude and turned away from the traditional lecture hall in favor of hands-on learning. He enjoyed understanding how things worked inside and out. He learned best by taking things apart and putting them back together. He was a tactile learner and always found reasons to tinker with things and learn how to fix things when boredom struck. In his personal life, Jake was a loving son, caring, thoughtful brother, and strong friend that would go great lengths to care for those he loved. His laugh was contagious, his smile bright, and his impact great.
