We met Jacob and his parents when he and Cole were freshmen at Westside HS and we worked the concession stand together at the football games. I am so sorry about his loss and pray for his family. He was a great guy and will be missed by all who knew him.

Please accept my deepest condolences and know that God loves you and can restore your spirits, give you peace, and strengthen you.

Jacob's pain is gone, and it is our turn to deal with sorrow. Jacob has found eternal rest.

I cannot even begin to understand what Jimmy and Lisa are going through right now, but I would like to offer my prayers and condolences.

May the soul of the dearly departed rest in peace, may my prayers help guide him on his journey to our Creator.

We are deeply saddened by the news of Jacob's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Always in our Prayers, Jimmy, Shelly and Jason Reid

My wife Amy and I went to a Braves game vs. the Colorado Rockies with Betsy and Jacob a few years back. The Braves lost but we all witnessed a "No hitter" together. It was an awesome night which is pictured below. Jacob and Betsy also came over early the morning my second child was born to watch and care for our oldest while we hurried to the hospital.
In high school I had many adventures with Jacob as well and he will be dearly missed.

Thinking about you all in this time of loss. I remember playing at the lake with Jacob when we were little...he was always smiling.
Jimmy and Lisa, I pray that God provides the comfort you need during these forthcoming days. Prayers for Jacob's wife and son as well.

I haven’t spoken to Jacob in a while, but a few years ago we had our annual Hilton family Christmas reunion. Jacob FaceTimed one of the family members and he was as happy as can be making his way around the room saying hello to everyone with a big smile on his face. Praying that God provides strength for the family and friends in this though time.
