Paul Jacobsen Obituary
Paul Daniel Jacobsen

Our beloved husband, father, son, brother and friend Paul Jacobsen passed away on Thursday, October 18, 2012 while on a hunting trip in Ely, Nevada.

Paul was born on April 5, 1951, to Halvor and Amy Jacobsen in Carson City, Nevada. Paul attended Carson City and Las Vegas schools, as well as the University of Washington, where he played football. He graduated from UNR with a degree in informational systems and business.

He married his wife Gina Mastroianni in 1973. They were married for 39 years. Their son, Jon, completed the family when he was born in 1984. Family meant everything to Paul and he was a wonderful father and husband.

Paul and Gina lived in Reno where Paul was employed by First Interstate Bank, Norwest Bank and Wells Fargo. He was in the banking business for more than 35 years. He was well respected by his associates and customers, with many becoming friends.

Paul loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter, fisherman and golfer. He spent many happy hours with his friends pursuing these interests and expanding his list of stories to share. He was also a UNR football fanatic, rarely missing a game. Paul loved to cook and liked nothing better than bringing a special dish to share with family and friends.

He is survived by his wife Gina; his son Jonathan and fiancée Jessica Erickson; his mother Amy Jacobsen; brother Chuck (Lynn) Leavitt; sisters Ludene (Everett) Miller and Sandy Serrano. Many nieces, nephews, in-laws and friends will deeply miss his kindness, support and friendship.

A Celebration of Life will be held for Paul on Sunday, October 28th, at 3:00 p.m. at the Lake Ridge Golf Course, 1218 Golf Club Drive, Reno, Nevada 89519. Please bring your favorite photo or story of Paul for our memory book.
