Missing Jake Whatley Body has been found in the river, according to the following statements posted on social media on June 3. 2021.
Kaitlyn Ross 11Alive 1d · Update: I am just heartbroken to report Jake has been recovered from the river. Nim Whatley calls her son Mr. Big. He orders big steaks. He has a big dismount from his high bar routine. He does everything big. 17 year old Jake Whatley has done gymnastics since he was 3 years old. He was excited to go to nationals this year. He was excited for the rest of his life. Now his family is waiting to see if he’ll have that chance. He went swimming with 9 of his friends in the Chattahoochee River after practice yesterday. 8 of them made it across safely. Another kid who was also struggling tried to go to Jake for help. By the time the rescue team got to the river, Jake had gone under. Divers have been searching for him for almost 24 hours now. His Mom is waiting just inside the police tape. She won’t leave the river. “I’m praying for you,” Roswell Police Chief Conroy said, as he went off shift. “I’m praying for you,” said the Dad of one of his classmates who stopped by the scene. His Mom told me Jake is very religious. He prays over an apple before he eats it. She is praying for a big miracle now. A big miracle for her big son who never lived his life small. Please send her all of your love 2.5K2.5K 578 Comments 315 Shares Like Comment Share

I could not sleep last night. Jake was a gymnast in the Gymnastics program in my building. He was incredibly talented. I would see him come to practice and stay for hours working very hard. And he was also very kind… just a sweet soul is how he has been described. I always smiled when I saw him and his big hair! Loved his hair! I am so very sad and I know he will be missed by so many. I am having a hard time wrapping my brain around this one. Many prayers go out to his family as I can not even imagine. Prayers for our gymnastics family and for the friends that were with him that day. May he now rest in peace in the arms of Jesus..

From one mama to another my prayers are with you and my heart is breaking along with yours. I’m praying for a miracle and that this be a rescue story. If I were closer I’d come there and pray with you and hold your hands. May God give you peace while you are waiting .

This was on my Next Door website last night. It happened not too far from my house. Sending lots of love, and prayers for and his family. No one really appreciates the current and depth of the Chattahoochee River sadly.

Sending prayers to a Mom’s worst nightmare. Glad that he is a follower of Jesus Christ, and we know that he is safe in GOD’s hands. I pray for peace. He sounds like an amazing young man.
