Jacob was not only my best friend, but a brother to me as well. I have many fond memories of him, but my favorite ones will always be the ones where we would skateboard around the neighborhood. Truly, I and many others will miss him. Jacob was an outstanding person, always smiling and being goofy will always be part of who he has. I will never forget his laugh.

I might have not known Jacob good but whenever I saw him he was always smiling or when Destiny comes into school talking about her time with Jacob it would always make me smile and it taught me that he loved music, he was funny, always smiling, he loved drawing, and she would come into school telling things about him and she talked so much it was like I know him in person or like a bestfriend would know about him. You will be missed and always know matter what happens.

My sweet sweet Jacob. We are heartbroken. Robert is crushed We miss you so much. You came into our lives and became part of the family as with Alex you three boys were always at the house together. I remember waking up one morning and every door knob in my house was covered in lotion and y'all laughing at me because I freaked out when I touched the door knob. I will miss seeing your sweet face walking through my door saying what's up Mrs. Nikki?? Thank you for always being there for Robert and Alex. You truly are the greatest friend and brother to those boys. We will carry you with us forever. The Dentons I promise Jacob!!!

To the family of Jacob, my deepest condolences go out to all of you, but take comfort in knowing others care, I did not know your son, but from what I have heard he was a fine boy, just starting his life , for it to have been taken away so soon, but remember we will see him again one day in that beautiful place in Heaven where he was greeted by his Grandaddy Bobby and they are have a great time in catching up, Bobby was my 3rd cousin , his mom my 2nd , so I know they are together and he will be ok and will also be looking down at all of you smiling . I pray God to give you strenght and comfort in getting thru these next few days, love you all and wish I could be there with you, but you will be in my thoughts and prayers, a cousin down the line, Jean Martin
