AGE: 92 •
Jacob Eisler, Jr., age 92, was peacefully called home by our Lord on Monday, June 2, 2014. Jacob was born and raised in New Jersey, graduating from Paulsboro High School in 1938. He honorably served his country during World War II as an intelligence specialist in the 530th Fighter Squadron stationed in India and Burma. After discharge as a sergeant in the Army Air Corps he met and married the love of his life, Sarah Korman. During their marriage of nearly 63 years, they lived in Clarksboro and Woodbury, New Jersey before settling in West Deptford where they lived for 46 years. After Sarah's passing in 2011, Jacob moved to Big Rapids, Michigan.
Jake was the devoted father of Dr. David L. Eisler and his wife Patsy, and Dr. Edward A. Eisler and his wife Joanne. He was the loving grandfather of Heather and her husband Nathaniel Campbell, Lindsay, Mollie, and Maddie. He learned of the birth of his great grandson David in the week before his passing. Welcoming Jacob into Heaven are his wife Sally, his parents Jacob and Augusta Eisler, and his sisters Anna and Louise.
Jacob was a long-time employee of E. I. DuPont de Nemours and Company. After retirement, he and Sally took many trips together, traveling throughout the world. They also enjoyed making new friends during many years of square dancing. Jake was an avid gardener and enjoyed sharing his homegrown vegetables with friends and neighbors. For nearly 50 years, he was a loyal member and lay leader of the Kemble Memorial United Methodist Church in Woodbury. Jake made many new friends during his three years as a member of the First United Methodist Church in Big Rapids, and enjoyed attending Ferris State University events.
Jacob's greatest joy was in his family. He was especially proud of his sons, four granddaughters and great-grandson. In supporting his sons he became an active Boy Scout leader and was awarded the Silver Beaver Award, the highest volunteer award given by the Southern New Jersey Council. He also served as President of the Woodbury Little League Baseball program.
