Steven Andrew Jacobson
June 24, 2018
When I think of life on Tartia/Markham roads the best of those memories include the Jacobson clan. The very first Jacobson we all fell in love with was Steven. (We fell in love with the rest of them In due time!). There was no escaping Steven’s charisma and charm. Steven and I were 12 when we moved to Markham Road and his family was living with Nana right across the street . He immediately went to work for Dad and quickly became part of the family! The stories are too many to share here but are an integral part of our childhood and remind me often of how life is supposed to be. Rest easy my friend. My love, Tissa
