“Jacob loved to hunt. He started hunting when he was seven with his grandpa. He hunted deer and turkey. He also loved to ride dirt bikes and spend time at home with his family. Before he passed he told us over and over again he wanted to help people. A year before he passed he inherited money from his great grandma and gave most of it away to people who needed to pay bills over the winter. He also just handed me the keys to the car he inherited because I needed a car. He was a very giving person. My family looks forward to helping end the 22 lives lost daily through education and awareness.” Shared by Jacob’s mother
