Jacob Hammond Obituary
Jacob Hammond, a Sandy Springs firefighter, was killed early Thursday, Sept. 21, 2017, when his motorcycle crashed in Forsyth County, a sheriff's spokesman said.

Hammond, 21, of Cumming, died in the single-vehicle accident on Bannister Road, Doug Rainwater said in a statement. Hammond joined the fire department at age 18.

More than 1,000 people, including firefighters from across the state, are expected at Hammond's funeral at noon Monday at the First Baptist Church in Cumming.

Hammond's friends are asking people with trucks and jeeps to line the street outside the church and wave U.S. flags in honor of their friend, who loved big trucks.

"He was an American. He loved this country. He loved this community. They need to remember him as the hero he was," Ryan McMullen said. "He loved helping people. He was not afraid to put his life on the line for his community, and that's how people should remember him."
