Jill, Amy, and Family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you. When I think of the many people with whom I have crossed paths, Harvey is at the top of the list as one of those people who played a big role in my life. He had a way of making everyone feel comfortable and always had a smile and a joke. He was such a wonderful friend and mentor to so many people. I consider myself lucky to have had the opportunity to work for and know him. May the Lord be with you and give you His peace at this very difficult time.

Jill, Amy and family,
Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Harvey's passing has brought great sadness to me, and to all of his many colleagues, friends, and family. Harvey was a true pioneer in our profession. He was a great visionary, whose impact goes far beyond the local area. His leadership set the standards that have been transferred to places across the state and the country. Harvey was my mentor - he taught me and encouraged me. Harvey was such a fun loving person, that he even made work fun (sometimes). Harvey was so passionate about is work - he did much to make our profession grow and to battle when he needed. A quick story that is typical of his humor and how he would fight for what he believed - in the 1980's, a consultant group came in to the hospital and presented a very biased written report that disparaged our profession and if accepted would have led to the loss of many respiratory therapist positions. During the meeting with some high level administrators, the consultant stated that they did not exactly know what respiratory therapists do, but blah blah blah. Harvey responded, "I am ignorant in a lot of things but I try my best to not put it in writing". Everyone in the room just about fell out of their chairs laughing. It is immeasurable the impact he has had on Respiratory Care and the people he came in contact with over the years. I will miss Harvey very much, but his memory will last with me forever.

Sylvia and I were Harvey's next door neighbors for many years on Dunaire Dr. He was a great friend and neighbor. We will miss him greatly.

Over the years Harvey Inspired, Frustrated, Challenged and sometimes had to "Bust me" But he never "Let me Down" and was truly my Mentor. Hope to see you again someday Mr. Jacobs.
