Robert “Jake” Jacob
Robert “Jake” Jacob

Robert “Jake” Jacob, the builder and owner of the Cannery Pier Hotel, was a dreamer. He held a vision of a better world and he invested in that dream. He was a key figure in defeating liquefied natural gas proposals at Bradwood Landing east of Astoria and on the Skipanon Peninsula in Warrenton.

Jake’s impact on the Columbia River did not end when he passed away last year. On November 7, the estate of the late Robert “Jake” Jacob donated $25,000 to Columbia Riverkeeper to continue the work of protecting the river.   

Would you  make a gift to protect the Columbia and  help match Jake’s gift?

Match Jake's Gift

Your gift will help:
  • Advocate for the removal of Snake River dams that are harming salmon runs and all that depend on them like the Southern Resident orcas; 
  • Protect the estuary from the building of terminals, refineries and pipelines that will endanger local communities, harm the river with dredging and pollution, and emit millions of tons of greenhouse gases; and
  • Clean up the forgotten toxic waste dump at Bradford Island near the Bonneville Dam, an area polluted with cancer-causing PCBs, lead, and mercury.
