Over the years Jacob worked for Gatehouse Media (Utica Observer-Dispatch), Human Technologies Corporation, Upstate Cerebral Palsy, HMS Host Family Restaurants, and Wal-Mart. Jacob had a love of music and found joy in listening to his extensive music library and playing his guitar. He enjoyed family visits to Cooperstown and the Adirondacks.

The support received from family and close and dear friends, particularly the Redeemer Church family, has been of the greatest comfort. Jacob had a kind heart for people in need. In his memory, the family requests that you consider an act of kindness to someone who may be struggling with loneliness or their mental health.
