Nichole I am sorry i was unable to attend, my wife and i were moving from Seattle to Knoxville. When I heard the news I immediately thought of of you and your son, i broke down and prayed. Jordan will for always be loved and never forgotten. He is with heavenly father now and will for ever look over you and your son.

Prayers have been going out to the Jacob family since I heard of Jordan's passing. Christ has always been evident through the love and care that Bob, Gretchen, Shawn, Jordan, and Jason showed me through high school and college. Just as He has been faithful to care through your family, so He will be faithful to care for your family. He will live through your memories until you meet again. Blessings to his wife, son, and extended family.

To the family, friends of Jordan Leigh Jacob. I didn't know Jordan very well. I work at U of KY., and we on a rare occasion would run into each other and have a small chat, but he seemed to be a very nice person, and I enjoyed talking to him on those few occasions. I am very sorry to you all, and I hope God gives you peace through this difficult time. God Bless you, the family and friends of Jordan. Peach to each of you I pray...Sincerely, Lee Davis University of Kentucky
