Jake leaves behind his wife of 17 years, Betty Jacobs, daughter, Carlie Berry of Austin, Texas, daughter, Nolyn Brooke, 16 and son Brayden Payne, 14, both of Branson, Missouri.

Jake is also survived by his loving parents, Gerald Wayne Jacobs and Eleanor Neisser Jacobs, his sister, Jeri Grady and Peter of Leander, Texas. Nieces and nephews, PJ Grady, Katie Grady, Molly Grady, Riley Grady and Grace Grady, all of Leander, Texas. Sister in law, Carolyn and Bill Irvine of Bay City, Texas, sister in law, Anna and Larry Moore of Bowling Green, Mo., sister in law, Cindy Potter of Bowling Green, Mo, brother in law, Bill Hawkins of Bowling Green, Mo. and a large amount of nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Richard W. Jacobs, paternal grandmother Irene Waida Jacobs, maternal grandfather, Henry Neisser and maternal grandmother, Sophia Ulrich Neisser, all from the Victoria area.

Jake loved his family. He loved being a husband and father. His children are the light of his life and his proudest accomplishment. His fun-loving spirit and goofiness made life always fun. He was never afraid to show them a good time. Jake loved being a son and worked hard to make his parents always so proud. Jake was an amazing husband. He loved being married and loved his wife. The two could and often did make fun out of not much, they loved watching tv together and laughing at anything. They had many great friends they hung out with and Jake was always quick to show a good time and make everyone feel welcome.

Jake spent a lifetime coaching high school sports across Texas, including Shiner, Tidehaven High School, Gainesville High School, Arlington Heights, Elgin High School, King High School Corpus Christi and finally being an assistant athletic director in Corpus Christi ISD. He was a two-time Texas Coach of the Year and a state championship coach in both volleyball and baseball. He held himself to a high standard of integrity, always putting the athletes and students first. Jake was kind and fair and loved to make sure his team and players were always at their best. Coach Jacobs spent a lifetime coaching volleyball, baseball, soccer, tennis and basketball. Jake took great pride in being an administrator in CCISD.
