Jacob Latif Mesch Obituary
Jacob Latif Mesch
Dec. 14, 2000 - Sept. 4, 2019
Jacob Latif Mesch was born Dec. 14, 2000 to loving parents Leila Hotaki Mesch and Andrew Orwar Mesch, Jr., within minutes of his twin sister Kira Helen Mesch. A beloved son, brother, neighbor and friend, Jacob lived in Portland and graduated from Chapman Elementary, West Sylvan and Lincoln High Schools.
Jacob adored birds, fishing and books, and shared his passions widely. A determined athlete, he was a top shot put and discus thrower. But more importantly, Jacob was a mentor on the team, full of brotherly love for his Lincoln teammates.
Jacob was all about people. He was sensitive, empathetic and kind, even to his sister (most of the time). He was funny, genuinely interested in people and had a wonderful ability to put people at ease. Jacob will be remembered as loving, full of life, enthusiastic, charismatic, loyal and a natural leader.
Jacob's family wants the world to know how much he was loved and how much he will be missed. In addition to his parents and sister, Jacob is survived by his aunts, Anne Mesch, Joan Heather and Mari Hotaki; uncles, Denis Heather and Kevin Mesch; grandparents, Jana Hutcheson and Latif Hotaki; and numerous cousins.
