Carrie Jacobs Obituary
Jacobs, Carrie



Carrie Jacobs, 56, died on May 7, 2016, after a courageous battle with metastatic throat cancer.

She was preceded in death by her long time partner Shannon Briggs.

She is survived by her parents, Shirley and Eddy Jacobs; brothers Dane and wife Denise, Drew and wife Mona and nephew Garrett. Faithful, loving pets Marley, Annie and Zoey.

She was a native of Albuquerque, born on August 17, 1959 at St. Joseph's hospital. Graduated from Del Norte High school and moved to Atlanta, Georgia to pursue her love of music. She was the front man for several bands with her brother Drew. Always had everyone laughing with her comedic talents.

She dealt with the task of defending herself to every bully, homophobe or person who thought that gender defined what one was allowed to do in this "Man's" world. She never gave in. Carrie was tougher than both her brothers combined. Anytime you see a skinny little "Tomboy" playing football or rockin' an electric guitar, tell em "You go girl!"

There will be a celebration of life, September 17th at 3:00pm at the family home.
