14-year-old Jacob Langston and his family took out a personal boat for a ride on June Lake on Saturday, October 15. Strong winds and choppy waters caused the boat to capsize and sink.

Jacob, his 46-year-old father Doug Langston and 22-year-old brother-in-law Caleb Johnson were not able to make it back to shore.

Following a four-day search, the Mono County Sheriff's Office shared that the bodies of the missing men had been found the morning of Tuesday, October 18.

A member of the junior varsity football squad in Tehachapi, Jacob was honored with a "Blue Day" on October 18. He was also a Tehachapi Police Explorer and the Tehachapi Police Department shared their condolences via Facebook.

The community is doing its best to honor the lives of those lost and on Friday, October 21, the Tehachapi High School football teams will wear a #72 decal on their helmets to honor Jacob.

A celebration of life will be held for Jacob and his father in the Tehachapi High School gymnasium on Sunday at 1 p.m.
