MADBURY – Connor Ross Jacobsen, of Madbury, New Hampshire, died on Monday, March 14, 2016, at Massachusetts General Hospital. With family by his side, Connor peacefully succumbed to his disease after a brave struggle of several months. He was twenty five years old.

Connor was born on August 26, 1990, in Exeter, New Hampshire, and moved to Madbury when he was six. He was a kind, protective big brother to Cody and included him in everything he did growing up. He brought his parents great joy and pride with his enormous energy, enthusiasm, humor, talent and kindness. He is a special member of a loving family who are heartbroken by his death. He leaves behind his mother, Lorna Jacobsen of Madbury, his brother, Cody Jacobsen of Madbury, his father and his stepmom, Jeff and Eileen Jacobsen of Gilford and Kittery Point, Maine, and his beloved dog Hodor. His family includes his aunts and uncles Beth Kelly and Steve English, Jean and Dick Thuma, Rich and Lori Jacobsen, James and Ellen Jacobsen, and Rick Kelly; first cousins Jillian and Ricky Kelly, Richard and Caroline Thuma, Richard and Tara Jacobsen, Katie and Ryan Quinn, Beth and James Byszewski, Kyle Jacobsen and his fiancé Tersey Regan, Michael Jacobsen and his fiancé Lauren Cartier, Jackie Jacobsen and numerous other extended family members.

He was predeceased by his maternal Grandparents, Rachel and Ross Higney and paternal Grandmother, Mary Ann Jacobsen.

Connor was a proud alumnus of the Oyster River School District graduating from Oyster River High School in 2008. As a 12 season athlete Connor excelled as a Cross Country runner, was a scoring member of the Oyster River Alpine Ski Team, and a member of the Oyster River High School Lacrosse Team, making it to the State Championships twice. Connor enjoyed school, his teachers, and made lifelong friends at Moharimet, ORMS and ORHS. He attended the University of New Hampshire where he was also surrounded by a circle of good friends. He most recently worked at Desmarais Environmental. Connor was an avid skier since the age of two but his love for the outdoors did not stop on the slopes. He spent many fun-filled days with family and friends hiking, running, back country skiing, climbing, fishing, lobstering, surfing and long boarding. Special memories include annual hikes into Tuckerman Ravine, ski trips with friends and family, summer outings to Canobie Lake and the Jersey Shore, vacations with his cousins and family friends. Connor was a true and loyal friend, quick to help and bore the burdens of other people as they were his own. Connor's kind and gentle soul will be in our memories, hearts, and minds for the rest of our lives.

I am working in QC and wont be able to attend the memorial service but please know I am there in spirit.
