I remember my dad's words daily. He's such a great dad and person. I love and miss him dearly.
April 14, 2017
For a 3 year period of time 1999-2001,I was the engineer in charge of writing failure reports for the bits and Mathew Jacob did all of the cutting and photo work to support our writing of these reports. Mathew was a very kind person, caring, honest and hard working. He was always willing to accomplish difficult work to help us drive to a solution for our products. I cared about him and appreciated him during our time working together. I tried to be like him too and help him out whenever he wanted me to do something to help him out or he had good ideas.

I went fishing with Mathew one time and he really enjoyed fishing. He caught a lot of fish. He also helped me catch a fish. While we were fishing, a large (12lb) fish struck my line and dragged my fishing pole into Lake Ray Hubbard. Your dad, quickly took off running out into the lake to rescue the fishing rod and the fish. He didn't want the fish to get away and didn't want to see me lose a fishing rod. That day it was me, Mathew and Pele' Nunley fishing together.

I also remember that he enjoyed his gardening and especially his strong hot peppers. I introduced him one time to the Habanero pepper that he thought he could handle eating because he thought it wasn't as hot as his Indian peppers. We were all invited to a Chili breakfast at work where everyone had brought pot luck. One of the ladies had brought fresh vegetables from her garden at home including some fresh Habanero peppers. I noticed the peppers and while in line for Chili I turned to your Dad and said "Mathew, I will give you $10 if you eat that pepper right here. Mathew reminded me that he loved peppers and that it would not be a problem for him. Another person, Walt added another $10 promise and at that time, everyone in the room was focused on our little wager and your Dad picking up the Habanero pepper. Well, Mathew never wasted time and he didn't on this occasion, he downed the pepper right there in the room. At first it appeared, to my dismay as if it would not even be hot for him, but after a few seconds the heat from the pepper begin to affect him and he kindly excused himself to go get water. I remember not being able to find him for a few hours but once I did he said that his mouth had been burning and he needed potato chips and other things to calm it down. I gave him his $20 and asked him if it was worth it, he smiled and said "no way but I did get your money"...we both laughed and I agreed with him. He found out that some of the Western Hemisphere peppers are very hot too and need to be eaten with food and drink to avoid getting seriously burned. It was a story that both of us remembered.

Really cared about Mathew. Sorry about his passing but I'm excited that he accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior because that means I get to see him again in Heaven. So long Mathew and I'll be there to see you one day.

With Sincere Care,

To Tommy Jacob and Teena and to your mother
You were our next door neighbor when we lived in ashglen in garland Texas near to the DPS headquarters. We went to school together till kindergarten at Ms Kirkland's class at Miller road Baptist church school. Thirty five years have passed since we parted ways. But I can never forget your father. I hope the years between were good. But if there is any hope to he had, remember that it is in the presence and knowledge of Jesus Christ. My dad shared that gospel message years ago with your parents and your dad accepted the Lord as his personal savior. What more is there to say? Amazing Grace. Thank God for the good memories of the past. God bless you. From Pastor Justin Jacob and the Pastor Bethel P. Jacob family
