JACOBSON, Christine


After a protracted battle with cancer, Christine Marie Jacobson died on November 4th, 2014 in San Marcos, Texas at the age of 54. Christine was born on November 27th, 1959 in Ft. Worth, Texas. Christine is survived by her husband, Scott Jacobson; her son, David Schrieber; her step-children, Erik Jacobson and Rebekah Jacobson; her father, Henry Gonzales and step-mother, Dorothy Gonzales; as well as, her siblings, Ezra Smith, Casey Gonzales, Tony Gonzales, Timmy Gonzales, and Tonya Hendrix.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Marcella Smith and her son, Christopher Schrieber.

In college Christine was interested in criminal justice. That interest eventually led to her career as an officer with the Austin Police Department. She joined the force in 1990. Christine excelled in her career and was promoted. At the time of her retirement in September of 2013 she held the rank of Sergeant.

Christine met Scott Jacobson while working for APD. Scott was a fellow officer. They were married on November 9, 2005. At the time of her death they were both retired and living in San Marcos, Texas.

Christine had many special qualities and talents. She had a beautiful voice and shared it by singing on the worship team at San Marcos Community Church. She was passionate about praising Jesus with her voice and with her life. That passion was expressed in her unwavering devotion to her family and her friends.

Christine loved many things in her life. She loved her family and friends, her animals, beautiful flowers and gardening. She loved nature and everything pertaining to wolves. She loved to read and her favorite book was the Bible.

When diagnosed with cancer in 2011, she remained dedicated to her work and in her will to fight her illness. Many have said that Chris was somewhat "stubborn" but it was that tenacity that enabled her to hold onto her faith and that caused her to be a bravely courageous and Christ-centered woman, even throughout her final days.

Funeral services will be at 3:00 p.m., Sunday, November 9, 2014, at the Cook-Walden/Capital Parks Funeral Home in Pflugerville. Interment with police honors will follow at Cook-Walden/Capital Parks Cemetery. Visitation will be from 2:00 p.m. until service time.

When I think of the first time I met Chris, 1990 doesnt seem so long ago. There are a few who enter your life and their "being" stays with you through time. What a smile that day still brings me.

To all the family and friends. The Lord always keeps His word. I am assured the Lord Jesus is with Christine and she is happy. Although are hearts are in pain from the void left by her absence here on this Earthly plain. As time passes our hearts will be healed as our walk and believe in the Truth increases. You will be missed Christine. And we will see you again. Steven Martinez

I did not know your wife personally but I want you to know that she touched my life through my daughter in law Holli who is also fighting cancer. She was used by God in such a special way to minister to others like my daughter in law Holli. When all is said and done in this life isn't that what we are supposed to do? Do unto to others as you would have them do unto you? I believe that is what your wife did and what a wonderful celebration she must be having in heaven right now. God Bless you all and may you find God's comfort through all of this. I am praying for you and your family.
