FRITSCH Jacob Jacob Fritsch went home to be with Jesus on Sunday, May 6, 2012. Jacob, born July 8, 1994, was a senior at St. John's Jesuit High School. He was planning to attend the University of Toledo in the fall to fulfill his ambition of becoming a high school math teacher. He enjoyed sports of all kinds, from a backyard game of football with his brothers, to golf, tennis, and bowling. He especially loved basketball, playing in the CYO program for eight years. He also had a passion for music, especially classic rock, and was known to be a true Beatles fanatic. Jacob was an independent thinker in all aspects of his life. This was no more evident than in his remaining the only Wolverine fan in a large family of Buckeyes. Jacob's greatest passion, however, was his Christian faith. He was a lifelong parishioner of Holy Trinity Catholic parish in Assumption. He was active in Christian service, and treasured the retreats he experienced during his four years at St. John's. He lived an exemplary Christian life. Those who knew him well know that he truly lived his life for the greater glory of God. Jacob is survived by his loving parents, Donald and Kristin Fritsch, and siblings, Donnie, Kimberly, Nicholas, and Allison; grandparents, L. Donald and Jane Fritsch, and John Ulmer; step-grandparents, Nina Ulmer and Ken Hulsey, and many loving aunts, uncles, and cousins. Jacob was preceded in death by his grandmother, Charlene Hulsey. Family and friends may visit at Reeb Funeral Home, 5712 N. Main St., Sylvania, OH, Thursday, May 10, 2012, from 2 to 9 p.m., with a meditation/scripture service at 7:30 p.m. His funeral Mass will begin at 11:00 a.m. at Holy Trinity Parish in Assumption, OH, where visitation will begin at 10:00 a.m. Those wishing to make monetary donations in lieu of flowers are asked to consider Holy Trinity School or St. John's Jesuit High School for the benefit of their Campus Ministry and Christian Service programs.
