Jacob Lee Reed
May 25, 1991 – May 13, 2020
It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved Jacob Lee Reed. Jacob passed away on May 13, 2020 in a tragic car accident. Jacob was born on May 25, 1991 to his parents Terry Lynn (Floyd) Burns and Lee Scott Reed in Dallas, Texas.
Jacob loved and gave his whole heart to the Lord and was currently serving and sharing Him everywhere he went. He loved riding dirt bikes, fishing, boating, camping and everything outdoors. He was a great artist with a huge imagination. Jacob was an all-star at everything he participated in.
Even though death has come too soon, his life will leave an impact on so many. Jacob left behind many family members and friends. He was the life of any and all gatherings he attended. He will be most remembered not only for his beautiful soul but for his great smile and energetic laugh. There was never a dull moment with Jacob. Whatever he was doing, he went “all in”; he loved “all in”, he played “all in” and those that loved him will remember Jacob…. “all in”.
Jacob is the proud father to his son, Tyler Jacob Reed and daughter Maycee Grace Reed. Jacob faced many struggles in his short life but had come full circle by the grace of God to become a loving father to Tyler and Maycee. His children viewed him as a treasure in their lives. He held great pride watching his son play sports and his daughter dance and tumble. He adored his children and worked very hard to build a bond with each of them.
Jacob is survived in death by his loving son, Tyler Reed; his precious daughter, Maycee Reed and their mother Britney Odom; his mother and step father, Terry and Michael Burns; his father, Scott Reed; his sister, Kandyce Reed; grandparents, Ronnie and Brenda Reed; aunts and uncles, Laura and Tommy Garrett, Gary and Peggy Reed, Tim Mason and Kenneth Moore; his girlfriend Krystal Cobb and her sweet daughter Prescott, numerous cousins and other beloved relatives and friends (whom all loved him like family).
Jacob is preceded in death by his grandparents, Earl and Massie Woody; aunts and uncle, Debbie and Jimmy Mason, Lynn Mason; two uncles, Kenneth Reed and Fred Reed.

The best friend that anyone could ever ask for, the best dad a kid could ever want and the best soul to ever walk the earth. I miss you and love you more than you’ll ever know brother and no words can’t even get close to how much I really mean that. You were my best friend and my brother. I’ll never forget and cherish all the memories that we had together. Until we meet again bro, watch over us down here and I look forward to seeing you again in heaven.

I am so proud of you and how you turned your life around and followed Jesus and were so close to Ty and Maycee. I have always loved you. I remember when you and Britney came to see Pappaw and me at our lake house and we fished. I have good memories throughout the years. We shared the births of Tyler and Maycee and was so happy you and Britney included me. I will miss you, but know that you are with Jesus and He is taking care of you. I will see you again when Jesus calls me home. Your loving Mimi.

Last time I saw you was high school and my memories of you are ones that include you being goofy and kind. I will always remember you being a tall skinny kid lol. I’m sorry you’ve been taken way too soon. I am praying for peace for your family during this time.

Jake, I met you in 2007 when you came to see Britney. I was loading my bikes to go racing and when you saw the bikes your eyes sparked. And you asked “ are you a professional racer”. I new then we shared a passion for adventure. We created many memories on and off the track over the years. You and Britney gave me two perfect grand children. You have a place in my heart for eternity. I will miss you very much. Ride the clouds hard son. Moto in the sky.

Jake was also so funny and caring in high school. I remember having classes together and he always made the boring ones fun. I’m heartbroken his life was taken so soon. It was great seeing him growing and bettering himself through Facebook. My prayers are with his family and children.
