"Everyday in some small way
Memories of you come our way.
Though absent, you are always near
Still missed, loved and always dear."

A year ago today, hard to believe. Miss you, dad.

Mae, I am truly sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. From reading these pages in the guest book, he sounds like he was a really great guy. Always young at heart and up with the times. I'm sure he will be sorely missed. You and your family are in my prayers.

Though I never met Don Jacobson personally I did meet him through a YouTube video in August, 2012. I just had been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease and was searching for information on the internet when I "happened" to run across an interview with Don on handling PD. He instantly became my hero and role model. I have watched that video several times, told my neurologists about him, and even used him as an example in a college chapel. His key: Be Happy....I'll never forget that statement and the way he said. May the peace of God comfort the family for the great legacy he left

Dear Lee; Our Charter House Residents' Council was shocked and deeply saddened to hear of Jake's passing. One of our advisory board members informed us last night at our monthly meeting. Jake was a wonderful advisory board member, Garden Club member, Play-Reading Group member, and we still remember how wonderful Bingo was when he ran the games for us. He was a spirit of unity for us. What a loss of a wonderful friend and neighbor. We have missed you both these past three years since you left the Charter House, and the loss has been ours since. I know that losing him, after 67 years of marriage, is devastating. Please know that many, many people who met Jake will always remember him, think of him, and love him, as well as keep you in their prayers. With much love, Vickie Price, on behalf of the residents and Residents' Council Boards of the Charter House, Silver Spring, MD.

How fitting to have an online guest book - unlike most people of his generation (or even many baby boomers) Grandpa had a passion for computers and was an early-adopter of cutting edge hardware and software. I'm certain his was the first household in Ruther Glen, VA with dial-up. But I digress. My Grandpa Jake was a man of uncompromising integrity, knowledge, work ethic, and above all, high spirits. He was a progressive, a storyteller, a horticulturalist, a charmer, a mentor, a builder, a satirist, and a big bear of a man well into his golden years. He was incredibly generous and devoted to his family. The past few years were filled with adversity, and he would often tell me he felt as though he was a 21-year old mentally but was chained to some old man's body. Through it all he persevered and even in the last week of his life my father said he was focused on staging yet another comeback. What a champion. We could all wish to have half of this man's drive. I love you Grandpa - through the memories of the time we shared you will live with me always.

Mae - I was so sorry to learn of your Dad's passing. He sounded like a terrific person who really loved life and all those around him. I hope that the wonderful memories you have of him are a comfort to you, your mother and your entire family now.

With sincere sympathy -
