Jacob had a true passion for music. He was a talented and accomplished musician, playing many instruments. Some may know him by his stage name, “Fast Molasses.” 

He had a unique ability of quoting movie lines, but his true superpower was kindness. He was fiercely protective of his family, a devoted and loving son and brother and doting uncle. An avid outdoorsman, he enjoyed gardening and spending time in nature, hunting and foraging.
