Jacob will be severely missed. He was such a sweet and loveable boy. I remember the family taking a trip, in the motorhome, to Alabama. He rode with us and played with Brandon and Justin the entire way there. They had so much fun. His Aunt Missy and Uncle Tom will miss his sweet smile and hugs. We love you Jacob and can�t wait to see you in heaven.

Jacob was such a sweet, gentle soul. His smile could brighten your day. Once when he waited too late to go to home (because time, for Jacob, was relative because there was too life to live!) so he came to my house to stay the night. I didn�t expect to open the door and see a him with a piglet that he had adopted. He said �I�ll keep her in the cage I promise� but that silly piglet would not stop crying because she wanted to be near Jacob. When I didn�t hear her anymore I came to check on them. There he was, sleeping on my couch with a perfectly happy piglet. Its a happy memory that I�m glad to have. I cannot imagine the loss his mother, sisters, step dad or dad are feeling right now. But I am very grateful for the chance to have been able to know, at least for a little while, such a unique person. The world has lost some its beauty and Heaven has gained some.

Crystal (and family), there are no words. I am so VERY sorry. I wish I could be there in person to give you a big hug. Stay strong, my friend. You are an inspiration to many. ?
CHRISTINA PEREZ October 24, 2020
Jacob I still can�t believe you have left us. We were just camping together with your mom and Rick. Our family is in complete denial. You were like an older brother for my boys to look up to and another son to Jo�l and I. Your free spirit and love for nature and family will truly be missed. Your strong Knowledge and wise words will be truly missed. You would do anything for family like give your last shirt on your back and you go without. I could go on and on how truly amazing you was and how much you will be missed tremendously. We will love you always Jacob.
MARY LUCIDO AND FAMILY October 24, 2020
Dear Crystal and family. Our hearts poor out for you. Praying that God will ease the pain through this difficult time. God bless you and may your sweet boy rest in peace

I remember a much younger Jacob. He was a very sweet young man and I am deeply saddened to hear that he is no longer with us. I am praying for you all
JACKSON HALBACH October 25, 2020
Sending prayers from my family. My sister and I were close with Jacob when we were younger and one thing I remember was the energy he brought everywhere he went. That positive energy that fills up an entire room. Although I was younger than Jacob he never treated me as such and always made me feel accepted and welcome no matter what. He was someone I looked up to as a child and his energy will be missed. Rest easy big bro??
ROBIN TYLER October 25, 2020

CASSIE HALBACH October 26, 2020
Jacob was the absolute sweetest soul, had the kindest heart and just full of energy everywhere he walked. I was so blessed to have met him and blessed to of had such an amazing friendship among the years with him. He had taught me so much among the years and he always reminded me to keep chasing my dreams and never give up. He was always so positive and I will never forget his smile. My prayers go out to his family and friends. I am so very sorry. You were such a great man Jacob. I love you, I�ll see you soon.
CHEYANNE SEAL October 27, 2020
Jacob, I still cannot believe the news of your passing. You never met a stranger and even as a child you always had a smile upon your face. You would brighten any room upon entering, and your laughter was contiguous. Your love for nature and animals was evident from a very early age. I will miss your smiles, your many hugs, your laughter and your gentle old soul.
CAROLINE October 27, 2020
Jacob, you were the most kind soul I�ve met. You�ve helped every single person to come across your path with a smile or with kind words. You helped my person and your family develop so much character and become a better man. You helped me to understand perspectives more and have a more open mind. You inspire. You�re caring, and a beautiful soul. Always will be no matter where you are. Thank you for being such a great person in this life. You�re so loved.
CHRISTIE OSBORNE October 27, 2020

I grieve with you Crystal, your family ,and, grieve most of all for this young man �Jacob� -however it seems like he put much on this earth already. Perhaps that was his mission.Many others have been through this, and look for meaning -but the day you posted a rainbow at the beach only a very few days ago that spoke for everything .Prayers

You the reason I grew my hair out with you and Juan. I know you still be chillin with me n juan I could feel it.
