Dear Dawn, Troy, Hayley and Ben, I am so deeply sorry for your loss of Jacob. I remember Jacob so fondly from having worked with him as his OT at Lura Libby so many years ago. Jacob was one of a kind, so talented and unique! I had the privilege of watching his service today and with every memory shared of him it made it seem like yesterday. I can't express the joy I felt knowing that Jacob had accepted Jesus into his life and with this decision you can be assured that Jacob lives on and you will be together again in God's time. Until then please know that your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Dawn, I bought a painting from you a couple of years ago at the Oceanview Grange which I love. Now every time I look at it I will think of Jacob! Lauren Watts

I am heartbroken by the passing of Jacob. He had such a big, bright smile, a wonderful sense of humor and a deeply sensitive spirit. Among all the times he and I had the chance to speak, even if ever so briefly, what I will always remember with a smile was the summer day when we encountered each other downtown Rockland. He had his ukulele with him and asked me if I wanted to hear the newest song he was working on. Indeed, I did, so we sat on one of the benches outside FOG Restaurant and he played for me. I don't remember the song but I will always remember how happy he was, and how much that time with him meant to me. My heartfelt sympathy to each of you; Troy, Dawn, Haley and Ben. The attached photo he asked to have taken at his graduation. It is very special to me, as are all of you. Peace. Michael

Jacob started coming to our church - I was there at the very first I Am Second meeting he attended with his mom. He was so honest and open with everyone at the group that night. It was impressive to see a young man be so raw with people he had just met. I feel honored to have been able to witness a pivotal moment in Jacob’s life.

I didn’t know Jacob well, but I knew he impacted our church family immediately. I’m sure he had that affect on everyone he met. I was completely blown away the first time I heard him play piano - he was incredibly gifted. I am thankful that I knew Jacob as by brother in Christ.

Even though I know Jacob is with God now, free from any strife & trouble, my heart still breaks for his family & friends. I am so terribly sorry for your loss, & I wish we all could’ve gathered together to give you hugs & show you love face to face. Please know that you have had so many people praying for you, & we all sent you the biggest virtual hugs.
