Michael Jacobsen Obituary
JACOBSEN, Michael John, age 63, died Friday, August 10, at Longmont United Hospital. The cause of death was cancer. He was born in Boulder, Colorado, the son of Robert A. Jacobsen and Norma Jean Jacobsen. He leaves behind his two beloved sons, Evan and Noah, his ex-wife Karen Jacobsen, his two brothers, David Jacobsen and Mark Chase-Jacobsen, and his many friends, especially Janet S. Daley. Though he often modestly termed himself a "house painter," he was the longtime owner of the successful and respected painting contracting company Michael Jacobsen Painting of Boulder and Longmont. Over the years, many of his hundreds of customers became his life-long friends. His family and personal friends, including his poker group, will especially miss his appreciation and wide-ranging knowledge of popular music, his sense of humor, his eagerness to engage in discussions of politics and social issues, and his pervasive enthusiasm for life. An avid golfer, Michael was proud of having two holes-in-one. Donations in Michael's name may be made to the Peaks Care Center in Longmont, or TRU Community Care of Lafayette, both of which provided Michael, his family and friends, with highly professional medical support and compassion which greatly lessened the pain of his too-early death. A memorial service celebrating Michael's life will be held at Crist Mortuary of Boulder at a later date, to be announced.
