Jacob was a 2017 graduate from Woodland High School in Marble Hill, MO. He was a hydraulic repair technician for HoseMate in Marble Hill, MO. He liked to work on the farm, go mudding and shoot skeet. Jacob was always the life of the party. He made everyone laugh and always had that contagious smile on his face. He made sure everyone was smiling, regardless if they were down and sad. Jacob was the most selfless loving person and would give someone his last dollar, even if he was starving. He loved his siblings, his nieces and his nephews deeply. They meant the world to Jacob. He was a fast learner; he could pick up on something and have the task mastered in just a short while.
Jacob’s Grandma Murt was a very special lady to him. Every Saturday he would go grocery shopping with her, and on Sundays he was setting beside her in church. He loved her unconditionally and made sure she was never lonely.
