Jacob is my hero. He had to endure much more in his short life here on earth than many of us will ever have to but yet he made the most of the time he had. I send my thoughts and prayers to the entire family. May God comfort you and send you peace. I love you all.

David, Hayley, and Jon, My heart goes out to you and your family. Jacob was such a sweet and caring young man. When Jacob and Jon came to Strack Intermediate I learned so many things from them. The love of these two brothers for each other was so heartwarming. Working with Jacob for those three years he and I had a special bond. I am so glad I have been able to stay in contact with you all and follow Jon and Jacobs high school years. I was so proud when they graduated! I am morning with you at this trying time, but I know the celebration of Jacobs life is going to be a wonderful thing! Officer #9275 now has his wings and is soaring high protecting us all!! #TrueHero #GuardianAngel9275

What an inspiration to us all. When our day seems a bit troubled, too much going on to handle, think of Jacob and get through it by realizing some have made it thru a tougher fight.
Joyce Osborne left a message on January 20, 2018:
I often say there are a few angels that walk among us. Those special angel have unseen wings on earth but their wings in heaven you can see from earth. Their light just shines that brightly. Jacob is and will always be an inspiration to me and so many others. He truly lived and experienced so many wonderful things with his family. May God wrap his arms around all that love him during the new life they must lead. I won’t say while you adjust without him, because he’s always with each of you. Look for the signs you’ll see them all around. Our gracious Heavenly Father is taking care of him now and also watching over all that love Jacob. David, Haley, and Jon you will continue to be in my prayers.

Loved seeing you on-duty at the APD, Jacob. You were a gift to us all. Thank you for keeping watch from on high on your brothers and sisters in blue now. Hayley, David and Jonathan-You’ll forever be family to us! Thank you for sharing Jacob with us!

We are friends of Barb Klingbile, and she has kept us up-to-date on Jacob's condition. We have been praying for him and so has our church here in Mesa, AZ. Your family will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers. God Bless you all.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Please accept my sincere condolences during this time of grief. My hope is that the words of Christ Jesus be of comfort, when he stated that "the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out" (John 5: 28, 29). We can also take comfort in God's personal promise to "wipe out every tear" and that soon, even "death will be no more" (Revelation 21: 4).
Linda and Mike Probst left a message on January 19, 2018:
RIP Officer #9275. Your job on earth has been completed and now you are needed to enforce the law and protect all your fellow Angels. Excellent job and you will certainly be missed, but let your mom, dad, brother, other family members and men/women in blue that you walk with and beside them everyday in spirit. Thoughts and prayers to your family as they grieve your passing. You are free from pain and suffering
