Jerome Jacobson Family,
My sincere condolences to all of you. Many of you we may have never met, but I am part of the Barbara Hammetter-Stromer family in Iowa. Jerome (and Janet) visited my mom, his cousin Barb, many times on the farm. My family, especially my boys Mitchell and Nick, laughed and joked with him and teased him about his Indianpolis Colts vs. our Chicago Bears. We were all heart broken to hear of his loss. Knowing your dad brought us much laughter and joy. He will forever be in our memories. Bless you all in your time of loss.
Much love,
Dave, Wendy, Mitchell & Nick Mohlis
