Kurt Jacobson, age 42, our most beloved father, son, brother, and grandfather died from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident on December 11, 2004. Kurt was born in Waco, Texas on July 11, 1962, but moved to Austin with his family when he was 4 years old. Kurt was a graduate of Austin High School and later attended Austin Community College. Kurt and his beloved wife, Shauna were proud and active members of First Baptist Church of Oak Hill and on numerous occasions taught Sunday School there. Both of them had a very strong faith in God and their lives reflected that in every way. For the ones fortunate enough to have known Kurt, he was a very loving, kind, and humble man. He was not perfect, but to his family and friends he was very close to it. If anyone needed his help, he would have gladly given the shirt off his own back at the drop of a hat. Kurt had far too many accomplishments in life to mention here, but his most cherished treasures in life were God, Shauna, the love of his life, and his son, Rockland, his family, and his many great friends. He loved life and lived it to the fullest. Even though he had been slowed down in recent years due to multiple sclerosis, he never complained. There were many days that he did not feel well, but he carried on. Kurt was a Travis County Deputy Sheriff for several years prior to joining the Austin Police Department. He retired two years ago due to his illness. He was very well liked and respected in both departments. He received numerous commendations and awards and a life saving medal. During the last year, Kurt devoted many hours taking care of his father who had been seriously injured in an automobile accident. He will be truly missed by everyone but we will always have our memories. Kurt was the family hero. He was preceded in death by his mother, Ruth Jacobson. He will be sadly missed by his son, Rockland; father, Harold; brothers, Scott and Keith; sister, Tina; granddaughter, Sophie; nieces and nephews, Jade, Jessie, Rebekah, Erik, Kelsey, and Kyle; and a host of friends. Funeral services will be at 1:00 p.m. Thursday, December 16, 2004, at First Evangelical Free Church, 4220 Monterey Oaks Blvd. with Reverend Ray Knowles officiating. Graveside services to follow at Cook-Walden /Forest Oaks Memorial Park.
