What a fine young man Jacob was; his quiet strength served his family throughout his growing up. He was such a fine example to his younger brothers and was the rock of support to them when they struggled with life's challenges. May the peace of the Lord surround his family in this tragic time.

We were teachers while Jacob was a student here in Sedan. He was always a sweet, kind & polite student. I am sure those characteristics made him a success in the military and culinary field. Gone too soon. Rest In Peace, Jacob.

Your son was a special Personality to make the commitment he did. May God keep him and grant you peace in this tragedy. Til Valhalla.
I met Jacob when I was a substitute teacher in Sedan. Always enjoyed having him in class as he was a quiet and polite student. Also remember him singing in the choir and always looked like he enjoyed singing. So sad his life on earth ended so soon. May the Lord wrap His arms of comfort around the family.
