Gregory Mark Jacobs Obituary

October 2, 1955 -May 8, 2015

Gregory Jacobs passed away peacefully on May 8, 2015 surrounded by his loving family. He is survived by his wife Shirley, children Jeff and Jenny, and grandchild Hunter. He is also survived by his sisters Carol Ann Miller, Marcie Houser (Mike), Gayle Jones, Eileen Jacobs, and Diane Edwards (Tom), as well as his nieces and nephews Chyzine and Joey Miller, Sean and Megan Houser, Jacob and Carissa Edwards. He was preceded in death by his parents Marion and Ray Jacobs as well as several aunts and uncles.

Greg grew up in the Yuba City, CA, area where he was active in sports (baseball, football, etc.) as well as in scouting (both cub and boy scouts). The entire family was proud of him attaining the status of Eagle Scout and several time winning the pinewood derby too. Greg went to college at California State University at Chico and Sacramento as well as San Diego State University. He worked in business/accounting within various private CPA firms within the greater bay area as well as within Sacramento public agencies (Hud and most recently Sacramento County from which he had retired in 2010). He obtained a Masters in Business Administration and also taught Accounting at Sacramento State University. He was active in many pursuits including bicycling (riding the entire coast of California), jogging (a many time participant in the Bay to Breakers), skiing, art work (belonged to several art groups including the West Sacramento River arts, Crocker Art Gallery courses, as well as many other public broadcasting system art related events).

He always knew how to have a good time and encouraged all to do the same. He loved people and always reached out to show everyone a good time. He is probably throwing the biggest party ever with everyone in the great beyond.

He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
