Jacob was an artist in every sense of the word. He loved to write, and wrote many lyrics to songs. His love of music and playing the guitar were probably the most predominant of his art. Jacob and his pals formed a band in high school called FWL (Friends Without Legs) and it was popular with the school crowd at that time.. In college at Hays, Jacob, Brendan Arnold, and Josh Fellers formed the band “Audio Spaghetti” . They composed the songs and recorded two albums. Jacob,was the vocal, and played the bass guitar in the band. Brendan played guitar, and Josh, the drums. Audio Spaghetti songs can be found on Youtube.
The real Jacob was a sensitive, loving, praying, tender man. He marched to a different drum beat most of his adult life. He was a strong personality whose presence will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
