JACOB G. WEBER - UNDERHILL - Jacob George Weber, 30, of Underhill, Vt., and formerly of Colebrook, N.H., passed away at his home, due to medical complications, early on Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2013. He was born on Jan. 18, 1983, in St Johnsbury, Vt., to Howard Weber and Mary Beth (George) Kenison. He attended Colebrook Academy and NH Technical College in Laconia, majoring in Fire Science and Investigation. He moved to Vermont upon marrying the love of his life, Alicia Davis, on Aug. 3, 2008, creating a home together with his four-legged friends, Willow and Kiwi. As a couple, they enjoyed snowmobiling, biking and camping. Together they created Sky Acres, a small maple-sugaring operation. Jake was a firefighter with the rank of Lieutenant at Barnstead Fire and Rescue in Barnstead, N.H. He was a volunteer firefighter at Underhill/Jericho and Essex Rescue in Vermont. He began his fire service career in 2001, at the age of 18, as a volunteer at the Colebrook Fire Department. Jacob also worked part time for the Lancaster, N.H., Police Dept. Jacob was brought up in Colebrook. He was the ultimate people person; no matter where he went, he knew someone. As a young man he had many adventures with his two brothers, and was known for owning and working with Jack and Fred, his team of oxen, not ever attending school during the Lancaster Fair, which he loved. Jake went in every 4th of July parade in Colebrook starting at age eight, either alone, with his brothers, and for many years with his oxen. Jacob's favorite job as a young man was working at the Nugent gas station, which he affectionately referred to as the "two-headed calf." Jacob began skiing at the Balsams Wilderness, and at age six was ranked a top-ten racer in New Hampshire. He became a member of the Ski Patrol there, working with his Uncle Bob (when not skiing off the trail with his friends and brothers). Jake was also a member of the Colebrook Academy Key Club, and was the Lt. Gov. for his district. Jacob played little league baseball and PALS Hockey. His true passion was for helping others, and he therefore helped establish the Explorer program at the Colebrook Fire Dept. until age 18, when he could officially become a member. Jacob's lifelong dream was fulfilled when he graduated in Fire Science and became a full-time professional firefighter for Barnstead Fire and Rescue. Jacob's life was completed when he met and married Alicia, whom he loved so dearly. They shared many things, but most important was their commitment and devotion to each other. He is survived by his wife, Alicia (Davis) Weber of Underhill; father, Howard Weber and wife, Kate, of Gulf Breeze, Fla.; mother, Mary Beth Kenison and husband, Toby, of Groveton, N.H.; older brother, Nicholas Weber and wife, Bianca, and their children, Kael and Bristol Weber, of Gilmanton, N.H.; twin brother, Capt. Samuel Weber of Dover, N.H., currently serving in Afghanistan; stepbrother, Toby W. Kenison of Groveton, N.H.; grandmother, Suzanne Weber of Colebrook; and beloved uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews and cousins. He also leaves behind friends and loved ones too numerous to count. Jake was predeceased by his grandparents, Howard C. Weber, and Donald and Helen George; and infant cousin, Charles Weber. Calling hours will be on Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013, from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. at the Jenkins & Newman Funeral Home in Colebrook, N.H. A funeral service will be held on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013, at 2 p.m. at the Colebrook School gymnasium with the Reverend Rebecca Larson and Pastor Mike Kooy co-officiating.
