I worked with Dallas at Western School. I found him to be a born decision maker and leader. I always liked his ability to get to the bottom of things quickly. He was adept at reading people and understanding how to resolve problems. I always believed this military background played a great role in Dallas's life as it taught him discipline and working on a team. I haven't seen Dallas in many years but I do think of him fondly and I'm sure his family will miss him greatly.

Deepest condolences to all of Dallas's family. I have so many fond memories of childhood with Lorre, Dallas, Scott and Stacey. My mother Elaine and Dal's mother Betty Jane were best friends, and because we all lived in the North Hills suburbs, we visited together often. The Jacobs house was full of love and fun, respect and integrity. Dan, Betty, and Isabel raised their children to be excellent people. I am so sorrowful for his siblings, spouse and children in the grief of his loss. He is with his mother, father, grandmother, and all his loved ones who have gone before. Big, warm hugs to all his family and friends. -Heather Farmer Hoak

Way too many fond and hilarious moments spent with Dallas. Growing up in the church together, and then realizing we could break a few rules together and possibly get away with it. From our "Dummy and Dally " skits performed at church functions, to the countless afternoons playing basketball in each others driveways, listening to James Taylor....we always had a tremendous laugh about life in general. I lost contact with Dallas for many, many years....but was fortunate to catch up in the last 3-4 years, and we never lost a beat as to what mattered most. Our friendship endured the test of time, distance, mistakes made. Rest very well my dear old friend, I cannot watch another Steeler or Penguin game without trying to text you......you are missed and loved.
