In 1973, he enlisted into the United States Air Force where he served as a combat medic. It was during his deployment to the Philippines that he met Concepcion. They were married on Oct. 25, 1977 and welcomed two daughters, Christina and Glenda. Due to injuries sustained during his enlistment he received an honorable medical discharge and returned with his daughters to Lake Charles.

He held the duty to his family in the highest regard, although medically disabled, he did not allow it to deter him from providing a good life for his children. He was the most valuable man, a jack of all trades, a master of none, he took odd jobs to provide them a quality education. He was a stern but fair and kind man to his children; he taught them to never give up nor complain no matter the circumstances. He was a dedicated family man who enjoyed nothing more than spending time together, cooking, or BBQ’n.

He was welcomed into Eternal Rest on Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2022 by his loving parents, Ernest Franklin and Beatrice “Bea” Jacobs; two brothers, Kenneth Jacobs and Gary Jacobs.
