John "Jake" Jacobs

John "Jake" Jacobs, 87, passed away peacefully on Saturday, Dec. 18, 2021. He was born in Manitowoc to the late Josephine (nee Dufek) and Bernhardt Jacobs. Jake served in the U.S. Army in a Military Police Company U.S. 1st Division before marrying the love of his life, Sharon. Together, they raised three children: Michael Jacobs, Sandra (Bob) Meller, and Barbara (Eric) Paulsen.

Jake adored his grandkids: Megan (Jesse), Kaitlyn, Matt (Trisha), Jacob, and Noah; as well as his one great-grandchild Albie.

Jake was an avid outdoorsman. He worked for the Wisconsin DNR for 32 years and loved hunting, fishing, golf, and hockey. His favorite places were the Northwoods, Door County, and the mountains in the western U.S. In addition to his love of the outdoors, Jake passed on his love of card games, books, and dogs to his family.

Jake was preceded in death by his parents, Aunt Lucy Dufek, and sisters Mary, Joanne, and Barbara. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the WI DNR or the Parks Project in Jake's honor.

A private family service will be held for John at a later date. You may leave your private condolences for the Jacobs family at The Carlson Funeral Home (715-369-1414) is handling the arrangements for the family.
