PATRICK JACOBSON GUEST BOOK
I thought about you a lot as I started learning how to drive last week.
Whenever I think about it, all I can think, is, it sucks. It sucks that I
didn't know you better, and I wish I had. Remember camp, though? Me, you, my
brother, and Sally always went. Those were the best times, and I wish that
we had more. I still remember one day, at my Grandmas. I was going through
some old newspaper clippings (you know my g-ma) and there you were, holding
up a fish, looking like you were having a great time. That wasn't too long
before the accident. You are still deeply missed, Pat. And even though I
didn't know you as well as a lot of other people did, you are still in my
heart. You touched a lot of peoples lives, and left a lot of good memories.
Still loved always.
I will never forget in 3rd grade Mrs. Mindenhall made pat read a goast story
to everyone. then at the end of the story he jumped off the seat and scared
Nick M and he almost fell out of his seat. I remember all the times we sat
together at lunch because i had the biggest crush on him. At recess all i
wanted to do was be on the same kick ball team as him so our team could win.
Pat was amazing at sports and i will never forget him. I cant believe its
been a little over a year since youve been gone...
i miss you
I know I didnt know you as well as half the people on this page, but I still
remember you. I remember all those nights at the Mcmillins when you stayed
with Nick and I stayed with Kenzie. Everything is different around here now
that your gone, everybody misses you. You were an amazing basketball player
and your smile always warmed hearts. You had a way of making everyone feel
better. I can remember your laugh and your smile and it will never be
forgotten. I miss you Pat.
Heyy Pat. Well this one year went by SO FAST... It really doesnt feel like
your gone. So many people wore their PJ t-shirts today and that shows us how
many people you have touched... see you one day....
Wow one year today..the year has gone by to fast!
i think about you almost everyday..and how much u ment to everyone and how
much you touched peoples lives its amazing!
A year has passed and my heart has not healed. I miss you so and long to see
your smile. I know you are at peace,but still I grieve. I love you
forever,till we meet again,
Patrick.. it has almost been a year now.. our home has not been the same
without you there... you made us all feel so happy inside.. and we miss it
so much and want you back... but even though we can not see you and talk to
you.. all the things we all did with you will be in our hearts forever.. I
love and miss you and wish i could tell you how i really feel..
You are one of the best people I knew. I don't get why you had to leave us
so soon. The people in Enon are still very much upset. I will pray for you
and your family every day. ????
You were a wonderful kid and full of excitement. I wish i would have gotten
to know you better.I know you made many people happy.Im going to miss you

time !! Even though you can not celebrate here you are somewhere better !! I

Happy Birthday Pat. We thought of you yesterday. So many people wore your
beautiful face on their hearts to remember you. You will be missed this
coming basketball season, but I know you will be ever present and we will
know you that you are there. Please help Travis make the right decision and
watch over him and the other players and teams at Greenon. You are sorely
missed my little friend. We will remember you and love you forever. Say hey
to my hubby if you get a chance. God bless you.
Happy Birthday Pat. So many people remembered you yesterday and wore your
face on their hearts so proudly. You are sorely missed. I know your spirit
will be in the gym this winter. We will be able to feel your presence
without a doubt. Help Travis make the right decision and pray for all the
players, boys and girls. Say hello to my hubby if you get a chance.

you were friends to many. You touched lives and people mourn to this day. I
was one who saw the crash with many others. They miss you Pat
"Patrick has been loved in life so let us not forget him in death." Patrick
was someone you could lean on when needing a shoulder.
It's hard to believe that come Friday, you will have been gone for one
month....It seems like only yesterday. You can rest assured that everyone
still has you in their hearts and continue to think of you and pray for you.
I think of you each time I pass the site, which is now adorned with flowers
for you. I hope you can see them. They are beautiful.
In My Pocket
I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.
My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.
They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.
Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.
But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most
I miss you Patrick. So much, i think of you every hour of the day in
everything i do. I cry for every moment we had and every moment i will not
see you. i really didnt know how much you being part of my life impacted me,
because you were always there. but i love you so much, i love you more than
anything, and the same goes to your family. please wait for me to come see
you again. ive been to see ya 3 times now, and its not like anything i would

Dear John & Jennifer;
We want to express our deepest sympathy upon Patrick's death. We also want

friend and always will be... i love you, and i know you are watching us down
here. i will be sure to care for your family, and be there for them... i

You were such a joy to watch on the basketball court. You put so many smiles
on the cheerleaders faces and it was truely a blessing to watch your talent
on the court. Everyone is truely going to miss you and we know you are
watching from above. You will always be remembered as the freshman on
varsity and will truely be missed in the seasons to come. RIP "Freshman Pat
Greenon Cheerleading Advisor
patrick you went to my churh and you where like the niceist kid i knew i
will miss you. you where so funny also you where always smileing. :]
you had a great life but it ended so short. i will miss you. and so many
others will miss and love you.
I was sad to see you go, however, I will always remember you holding me
tight at your Uncle Jeff's house. Being a baby I tend to like all the
attention. I even helped to comfort your mom and dad when they held me in
their arms as well.
you touched everone that u met and its hard to not have u there. ive known u
since third grade and it's just like yesterday that we were standing in line
goofing off like we used to. we havent talked that much since forever and i
wish we could have. u were such a good person and school is nothing without
u, especially spanish and beween (he, he) classes. thanks for every smile u
shared, that could have been hung in a museum, 'cause it was so great, and
thanks for all the lives of people u didnt even know u had touched.
miss u forever and ever, PJ,
John and Jennifer, Thank you for letting Pat into Shannon's life. She will
always remember Pat's smiling face and will always remember his last words
to her. He was one of her bestfriends. Nothing more could have made her
happier than to have had a friend like Pat in her life. (Thanks Pat)
Take Comfort knowing that God is watching over him now. My thoughts and
Prayers are with you.
What a great kid,from the first time we met you in Little League you had so
much energy and spunk, you never slowed down. You always made us laugh with
your witty humor and goofy smiles. The one time when we came to pick Devin
up at your house and you were not smiling and Devin and Ryan had the look of
awe on their faces I knew something was wrong, then you smiled and there it
was half of your front tooth was missing and there stood Devin and Ryan with
hockey sticks in there hands. Then you laughed and thought it was the
neatest thing ever. Never really found out who swung the hockey stick.
Pat you will be very much missed in many lives, but your smile stays in the
minds and memories of many.
John and Jennifer:
What great parents you are, the love you have for people and the respect you
have, always showed through Patrick. You will always be in our thoughts and
prayers. Let your faith in the Lord help guide you in the paths you have
Love you always
Pat was a very special person, pure in heart, a friend to all, who
brightened everyones' day with his smile and wit. He will long be remembered
and remain in our hearts forever. The Memorial service last night showed
just that as did the all the activites of last week. Kyra and he were good
friends and fellow athletes(both just named to the Times all area 2nd
basketball team; the only 2 from Greenon for those teams) May you find
comfort in: "those who are pure in heart will see the face of God". Take
time to grieve but more time to remember and cherish Pat. He'll be in our
hearts forever! We're here for you.If there's anything we can do just let us
know. We're only a phone call away.

Patrick..dude i miss you already. Im sad that i never got to know you as
well as other people. I met you through Bronson and you came to all the
fairborn parties. You were an amazing person and could always put people in
a better mood. RIP Chelsea
It's hard to believe all of this happened. I will never forget your humor,
the way you made me smile, and last but not least..your smile. I'll always
remember those times that we joked and stuff in the halls.
I will always remember you.
See you again someday buddy.
It's hard to believe all of this happened. I will never forget the way you
made me laugh, how we used to joke around in the halls, and last but not
least..your smile. You always put a smile on my face. I will never forget
you Pat. There's not a day that goes by I won't think of you.
I will see you again someday buddy.
I miss our good times on the Firehawks. You will always be missed
John, Jennifer and Family,
We wish that there was something we could say to help ease the tremendous
sadness and pain that you are feeling now. Having recently lost our son, we
know how difficult this moment is for you and know of the many difficult
moments that lie ahead.
Our hope is that your faith as well as the support of your family, friends,
and the community will give you the strength to come to terms with your
We hope that you find comfort in knowing that Patrick was a happy,
well-liked young man and that in his short life he touched many people in a
Those of us who have had the opportunity to know your family, know that
Patrick was well loved by you and that he in return loved you very much. To
know that your child was happy and felt loved and that he in turn loved you
is a blessing that we hope will be foremost in your thoughts and will remain
with you and strengthen you during difficult times.
The first time I met you in 5th grade in Mr. Kuhn's class I knew you were
going to have a good life, however long it would last. You were always
laughing, full of jokes and all the girls who knew you had crushes on you!=]
But it wasnt until 7th and 8th grade when we started to become friends.
There was something about you that made everyone smile. We werent the best
of friends, but we still had some good times together. And it seems that
alls those memories are flooding back now.
I wish I had the chance to get to know you even better, but Im just glad
that we were friends for those 2 to 3 years that were full of fun.
I am praying for your family, all your close friends and CJ and Austin as
well. Many peple here at Greenon are missing you. American History doesnt
seem the same without you being there.
I just know that God took you for a reason so I am glad that the 15 years
you did live were lived fully. You lived your life us much as you could live
I am glad that you are now in a better place.
Rest in peace PJ<3
Our deepest sympathy, thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Patrick was
full of energy, ready to get involved and a joy to be in his presence.
Patrick made you appreciate your time with him by his witt, playfulness and
energy. We will miss him dearly. Patrick will bring much joy to the heavens.
pat, i only met you once, at a party. i really didn't know anyone, but you
were one of the guys that actually made sure that i was enjoying myself. you
introduced me to a couple people & it made me feel at ease that i knew
someone was there to make sure i was happy. you always had a smile on your
face, everytime i turned around and saw you. when i heard about your
passing, it shocked me. but you were an amazing kid, and i want to thank you
for helping me that night, because i never got the chance to. you will be
deeply missed. rest in peace pj.
The Jacobson Family:
I never knew Pat very well. I was the Librarian at IV last year. I would ask
him how the game went the night before, and he would always give me that
wonderful smile and say ok. My husband remembers having Pat on an All-Star
baseball team one year. He says that he was an excellent catcher. He was
truely an amazing athlete. My son (LEVI) played football with him last year.
Our family is truely saddened by not knowing Pat that well. I just wanted to
let you know that our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.
You were blessed to have a son that was so special, not only to you but to
everyone. God Bless You All.
I've read through the postings in this guest book several times and can't
help but feel like I need to add something.
The most obvious thing is how Pat impacted so many lives (adult and teen) at
such a young age. I'm sure you are proud of what he accomplished in his
Judy and I are Joel's grandparents. I just this fall met Pat for the first
time and several times since, since he and Joel were on the basketball team.
Joel is a senior and had never played any sports with Pat.
When practice started this fall, Joel would come home and talk about
things....good and bad. It took maybe two practices for him to mention his
new friend on the team...Patrick of course.
From the beginning, Pat was one of the team. He was selfless,friendly,
polite, and as everyone has said, always smiling. I never heard a bad word
about him and what a team player !!
Our hearts go out to you and all the kids at Greenon, especially Austin and
We have this thing in my family that my sister lights a candle at church for
friends who need support of any kind. There is a candle glowing for you and
Our sincerest condolences,
Ken and Judy
No words can ease the pain your family is going through at this time. May
all your wonderful memories of Patrick help you through this difficult time.
God Bless Your Family,
To Jennifer, John, Zach, and Jillian,
Words cannot express the sorrow that I feel in my heart for you when I
learned of your loss of your precious son, Patrick. I remember how your face
glowed when you shared his adventures, Jennifer. I never met him, but I did
get to know him through you. I thought that he was one funny and amazing
kid. I hope this poem will comfort you.
I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.
My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.
They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.
Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.
But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most
Dear, Patrick you were truly my second brother to me and you still are. The
fun times we all had together will be my most treasured memories like the
time you threw the Jello at Cj in the bathroom, and all the times we played
Rock Band!! I will always remember you as the most loving and caring person
ever and you always made me smile! I Love You with all my heart and always
John, Jennifer, Jillian and Zach I am very sorry for your loss. Patrick was
a loss to us also he was a best friend to all of us and we loved him dearly:
Remember him as someone who always made you laugh
The Pennington Family
Me and harry are sittin here right now not even knowing what to say...Damn
we wish you were here. Even though i only met you twice i thought you were
great kid and i no my boy harry is sittin here thinkin about you and wishin
he had one more chance to see you and chill with you...R.I.P. PAT
I had known Patrick since sixth grade when I first met him by playing
against him in basketball. He was a great player and had great
sportsmanship. I recently was on an AAU team with him but only a few days
later I got the tragic news of his passing. Patrick was a good kid and will
be deeply missed.
I did not know Patrick personally but i did see him play basketball this
year when my son played for Shawnee. Patrick was a great ball player and i
am sure he was a great kid as well . My thoughts and prayers are with your
family during this time.
The Jacobson Family
We are very saddened by your loss and will keep your family in our prayers.
The Brigner Family
Please know that I share your sorrow for loosing your son Patrick.
I occasionaly came to Austin's games and also enjoyed watching your son
May God be comfort to you and give you the strength to cope with your grief.
John, Jennifer, Jillian and Zach-
My heart is breaking for you and your pain. I am humbled by your strength
and faith during this awful time. I have watched you comfort us all and
marvelled at your ability to open your hearts to other's pain and to try and
make us feel better. I think I can now understand why Pat was so special-he
comes from a special family. Patrick meant so much to us as a family. He was
so much fun to have in our home and as part of our family. He was a great
friend to Nick and to MacKenzie, our Patty-cake. I used to tell Nick to call
him and ask him over because he always made everything more fun with his
little crooked grin and his goofey laughter ringing though our house. Since
the third grade, I was amazed at Patrick's ability to make others rise up to
meet their potential. For someone who was so good at everything he tried, he
wasn't ever arrogant or boastful and he was always so proud when others
accomplished great things. He would get so excited when Nick did well at
something. We tend to over-idealize people when they are gone, but that
isn't necessary with Pat. He was special when he was here with us and I
believe that like a pebble dropped into a pond, the ripples of his presence
in the world and our community will continue to touch others for a long time
to come even now that he is gone. He leaves an empty spot in our home and
our hearts, in our community and our school, but I feel as though our family
is better for having known him and your family. We have been so blessed and
will miss him so much. God bless you.
I am so sorry for your loss...please know that you are in my thoughts and
Pat u was a very nice guy.... u will always be missed
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
gosh... this is all so hard to soak in. everyone always says the same
things.. like you could always make anyone laugh [especially me], soo smart
and an amazing athlete.. which you truely are considering thats what
everyone else is saying to :] Nick was my best friend when i moved here in
6th grade and if it wasnt for him i dont think we would have ever been
friends.. I remember sitting in the library with you and him and you just
cracked me up all the time. i miss your smiling face in the hallways. and
you peekin in and botherin senorita harper :]
you are such and AMAZING kid and i miss you more than anything. i just wish
i could at least say one more goodbye. it was so unexpected. we miss you and
love you so so much
may you rest in peace buddy
only the good [BEST] die young
thoughts&&prayers out to the jacobson family
love you man
My thoughts and prayers are with the Jacobson's and Glidewell's during this
difficult time. I am a friend of Zach's.
I was not best friends with Patrick but i did know him. I knew him through
Bronson Marlett, his Best friend from Fairborn. Bronson would always bring
Patrick to all the parties and he would just lighten the mood and make
everything ten times more fun! He was an amazing, good looking, funny, and
athletic kid with some pretty amazing dance moves. I never once saw him not
in a good mood and always saw him and Bronson having a great time together.
The loss of patrick has really effected alot of lives at Fairborn High
School. His parents should really be proud of him. He will truly be missed
we will miss you so much. walking down the halls at greenon and not seeing
you anymore is hard. you were an amazing person and soo funny. we love
Pat, I know we weren’t close but you were still a part of my life. You’ve
been really nice to me, to everyone. 7th and 8th grade would be different
and boring if you weren’t there. I will always remember you and the memories
we shared with you especially in Mr. Davis’ and Mrs. Vining’s classes. You
were always smiling and making people laugh. You were a blessing to
everyone. I miss you already.
My prayers go out to your family and friends.
John, Jennifer and Family,
I was so sorry to hear of your tragedy. You have been continually in my
thoughts and prayers.
you truly were one of the most amazing people i have ever met! you always
knew how to make me smile, even in the worst of times. im really gonna miss
seein you everyday and giving you hugs! i never let you forget that you were
my favorite freshman and i will never stop saying it. life isnt going to be
the same without you but i know, in time, i will ee you again one day. until
then, you need to keep lookin down to keep all of us safe! i will never
forget you and your sweet heart! im gonna miss you very much! i love you pj!
rest in piece!

As you read through this I'm sure you are touched by the large number of
people whose lives you touched. I know you touched mine and I know you
touched the lives of my own children. I will miss your smiling face. I will
miss watching you sail gracefully down the basketball court to a fabulous
layup or to an incredible assist. I totally enjoyed watching you play. I
love the game of basketball and you made it so exciting to watch. I will
miss your "high fives" and smiles after each game. God must be in desperate
need for a good point guard. I went to Fairborn yesterday to take my
children to the dentist. I felt so far away from Greenon town and couldn't
wait to get back here to be with everyone. Your loss has only brought us
closer as a community, and what a community it is. They always rise to the
occasion to help anyone in crisis!! If you look for my husband, I'm sure he
could coach that team Justen Falkenbach suggested. He used to coach
basketball and he is a great guy. And, I'm sure he will take you under his
wing and guide you through heaven. Like Alexa Jackson said, if we could all
only have you for two, just two more minutes, we could tell you how much we
love you and give you a big group hug. Your loss has touched everyone in a
way that will make them better friends, better drivers, and better kids all
around. Keep smiling bud. You are such a cutie pie. Watch over us down here
and pray with us for your family, and for your dear friends Austin and C.J.
May God Bless You!
Please accept our deepest sympathy. We understand your loss as we lost our
beautiful daughter on Thanksgiving Day in an automobile accident. We are so
so sorry for the loss of your son and brother. I cannot tell you how to get
through the days. I do not know how we have done it - I just know your heart
is broken as ours is broken. Please know that there are others out there who
are praying for you. We are praying that you find some peace. Watch for
signs from Patrick - he sounds like the kind of boy who will leave lots of
messages. Please pray for us and for our Megan as we pray for you and
Patrick. With deepest sympathy.
I knew Pat threw my brother's friend ship with him and through his friend
ship with the Stieners. He was an awesome friend who will be missed by your
family, friends, and others. I will never forget how nice and funny u were.
We never got to hangout or anything. But we did play sports against
eachother..You were an amazing athlete..And i could only imagine what kind
of friend you are..You will be missed deeply..
we will all love u pat!!!! but i loved u more. u were so funny & a fantastic
dancer. u were never mean at all. u were great spirited & u knew that too =)
u didnt deserve to die at all!!!!!! everyone at greenon local school
district will love u & miss u 4ever & u r in our hearts
pat you were an amazing person. you seriously could always make me laugh.
and i swear you said some of the stupidest things. :]. everyone cracked up
all the same. im going to miss seeing you dance around the room singing "i
will survive" on karaoke, and belting out shaggy and nelly lyrics in the
car. i can't express in words just how much i'll miss you. but let's just
say its a lot. i love you so freaking much pat.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
you were so amazing I don't even know where to start. I really didn't get to
know you but I enjoyed watching on the court and my dad coaching you. It's
hard for me to believe that I saw you two days before this happened and then
I was at greenon shooting waiting for you and I still am. I will never
forget you and I hope that I will be able to see you again when my time is
up on this earth. Someone once told me that God takes the good ones while
they are young! rest in peace and we all loved you !
P.S. you were a great dancer!!
You always could make people laugh. I only had one class with you this year,
but I will never forget this class now because you were there. Geometry is
so hard to get through now because you aren't there. Just seeing your empty
desk makes me want to wake up from this nightmare. You would make fun of me
alot, but I couldn't help but laugh. You were so kind to everyone, and I
can't even count the lives that you have touched with your kind spirit. I am
so glad to have met you in second grade because you have changed my life in
so many ways. I can't even count how many memories that include you because
there are too many. You are in a better place now, and I hope that someday I
will see you in heaven. We all love and miss you Patrick. Kaitlyn
Patrick, we didn't really know eachother. But i saw you around school
everyday. Its horrible that you had to leave us so soon, but you are very
much loved and missed. You didn't deserve any of this. You were such a nice
guy. Made everyone laugh and you were always so nice. But, youre in a better
place now. May you watch over us all. Rest in peace, Pat.
[& i give my best wishes to the family.]

I never knew u but you sounded like a nice guy. Too bad you went too soon.
you were truly an amazing person. words cant even begin to describe just how

sense of humor told me instantaneously that we were going to be best
friends=]i loved hanging with you bronson and cj..you three definently knew
how to have a good time-but more importantly-living every minute as if it
were the last...
i know that it is hard for all of us to cope with the loss of such a
talented, amazing friend like u pat. but God has a reason for everything...james
dean once said to dream as if you'll live forever,but live as if you'll die
tomorrow..u definently lived your life to it's fullest potential..you will
truly be missed and loved forever.i kno that u are in a better place, and
that u will always be watching down on us..one day i hope to join you and
see you one last time..

Haven't seen you in a long time! When I did, you were a great friend. Always
remembering your smile! R.I.P.
I wish I'd gone to see you play that night
I did not know it would be your last
You played the game so well for so young
The game I love so dear
But you've been called to God's team now
He must have plans for you
He will keep you in his warm embrace
Someday we'll meet you there
The answer found at heaven's gate
I wish I'd gone to see you play
I wrote this poem for Pat. My sincere condolences to the Jacobson and
Stegner families, all other family and friends, and to Greenon High School.
The Jacobson Family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. I was
blessed to have Pat in my 8th grade homeroom and Algebra I class. He was an
excellent student, athlete, and friend. He made me laugh daily whether it
was his happy dance when he received yet another good grade or just one his
crazy facial expressions. Pat aka "Patty Melt" you are truly missed.
I don't even know what to say because no words can express what you mean to
everyone. I'll never forget your smile, and I will think of you and your
magic hands EVERY time I eat Pizza Rolls for the rest of my life. This world
is a better place because you lived in it. I'll miss you forever..
"God can only lend us his angels for so long"
Rest Peacefully, PJ
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. We all will miss Patrick
.Grandparents of Fairborn Firehawk ,Tyler Hutchinson.
Its been too long since the last time I saw Patrick but I can remember
hanging out at Ralph and Kay's for one of their BBQ's and hearing about his
no-hitter, Dad (Gary) teasing him about girls and just enjoying his spirit.
He will be missed.
Pat, Our thouights and prayers are with you and your family. Although we did
not know you well ourselves, having met only a few times, you have been a
great friend to our grandson Travis. We have heard so much about your times
with him and all your other friends, we feel like we know you well. He loved
to play basketball with you! The family will never eat another cornish hen
without thinking about you and the team dinner. We saw the teams play five
games this year and enjoyed watching all of you. Travis will miss you so
much. It is nice to know he had such a friend.
I did not know pat personally! All that i have heard in the last few days is
how many lives he has changed! I know that he was a promising athlete. To
the family you are in my prayers. And I am very sorry for your loss! Stay
strong and keep your heads up! R.I.P. PJ
My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Pat was an amazing guy! I know for a fact that everyone loved him! I knew
Pat the most through church, and I was confirmed with him. I also went to
school with him. He always had a smile on his face, and he could always put
one on mine! Pat was an amazing friend, and I will miss him so much! As will
many others. I can always remember fun times that Pat and I had together,
and it puts a huge grin on my face. RIP Pat. I already miss you!
Words cannot express the sadness and helplessness that have overcome us
after this terrible tragedy. The impact Patrick's smile, friendship and
sense of humor made on his fellow students, teachers and friends is a
wonderful tribute to the special person he was. My hope for the family and
friends of Patrick is that in the days ahead your able to focus on the
memories your hearts hold and these cherished times will fill the emptiness
we are all feeling today.
I would like to share a song that we have been listening to and finding
comfort in. My hope is that others reading this guestbook might find comfort
in the words of this song.

With Love & Sympathy,
I had the great pleasure of getting to know Pat last year at I.V. I taught
8th grade Special Ed. and even though I did not have Pat in class, he was
one of my favorite students. He was so intelligent, friendly, and absolutely
hilarious! He always had me doubled over with laughter. He had the smile of
an angel! Everytime you saw him, you just had to smile back. I feel blessed
to have known him and the world was a better place with him in it! He will
be missed by everyone whose life he touched. He was an extraordinary young
man and his parents should be very proud of the awesome job they did in
raising him. I am so very sorry for your loss! As a mother of two boys, I
cannot imagine the pain and sorrow you are going through. My thoughts and
prayers are with you! May God bless you and comfort you in this time of
I never really knew you, but I'll never forget you.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. May God be with you during the rough
The Gossett Family
Patrick, I didnt know you that well but i did know you and you were always a
you had a great smile,
and you were a great athlete.
You always got good grades and never got in trouble which is what makes its
so hard to understand why? But as my mom once told me god wants only the
And you were great.
We all love you and miss you!
you will NEVER be forgotten!
Pat...Dude you a great friend and teammate nobody will ever forget you and
the basketball court just will not be the same with out you I Love Ya Man
i didn't know pat personally but to see the impact on everyone that knew and
loved him was heartbreaking. after losing my uncle a year ago in august i
can understand what it is like to lose a close family member. Pat i really
regret that i never got a chance to know you. i know that you were a great
person just by seeing all the people around me that loved you. R.I.P.
heres a poem i wrote for pat.
i didnt know him personally, but i knew of him, and i talked to him once.
Tears stream down my face,
I cant help but cry
When I think about you,
And how now I wont get the chance to know you
The thought never crossed my mind that you’d be gone
So I didn’t have a chance to say goodbye, or even start to say hi
I never really knew you, but I knew you were there
You were to young, you had too much going for you
God had a bigger plan
Everyone misses you
Me, I cant help but be mad
Mad that you aren’t here
Mad that I didn’t get a chance,
To talk to you in person,
Mad that you had to go so soon,
Leaving all of us behind
Then we all remember what an amazing person you were,
And start to realize you aren’t completely gone
Your in heaven watching me write this,
Watching your friends and family
Smiling that amazing smile of yours
I will dearly miss the thump, thump, thump of the ball outside my window
from the time the sun came up until after dark. It always made me smile.
I'm very sorry for your loss. I met Pat once after a football game. He shook
my hand and Greeted me with a heart warming smile. You are all in my
This kind of hits home because i'm not much older than pat was and i'm
learning to drive. Everyday I pray for everyone who is learning to drive and
for eveyone who is already driving. It is very dangerous.
Once again my sympathy for your family during this time of grieving. He was
a wonderful boy and will be well remmebered.
Pat was an amazing person who was always happy and smiling. He was a great
person and a role model to many. You will never be forgotten Patrick.
So many thoughts.
It's hard to even relize what has happened. I can't think of a better person
than you right now. You were always there and nothing was impossile for you.
I LOVE YOU. You were the best friend anyone could ask for.
No one will understand why it was your time in life to be in a better place,
but i guess God felt it was time. It's so hard going from day to day without
seeing you in the halls. Your happy spirits would always bring mine up when
i was done or just needed a little bust up. School is 100% different, like
you wouldnt believe. You've been in my heart forever and always will be.
This is the hardest thing in my life so far i have had to get over. I'm just
happy that I don't have to do it alone. Staying strong for everyone is the
hardest thing also, i don't know what I would do if i lost another one.
What im trying to say is, Patick, you are an amazing person. You will always
be in my heart, my preys, my memories, and i will miss you like no other!
RIP Patrick D. Jacobson, I miss you bud!
You will never be forgotten.
See you again some day <3
THE JACOBSON FAMILY - Our thoughts and prayers are with you. There are no
words to express how deeply we feel for you at this time of a terrible loss.
May your memories bring you comfort.
Your Neighbors on West Hunter Drive - We are here for you if you need us.
Pat you were the greatest guy ever..you made friday night football games fun
on the sidelines..you knew exactly what to say when somebody was having an
you brought sunshine to school during gym..
ill never forget you Pat
Patrick you are and have been a very good Nephew. From the days changing
your baby nappies to watching you excel at sports, school, and life. You did
not go through the motions of being alive instead you "lived". Taking every
challenge life offered and making it your own and that is too often a rare
quality in people. You will always been in my thoughts and when faced with
life challenges I will ask, "what would Patrick do"?.
Love and Slainte,
Uncle Jeff, Aunt Tina, and baby Josie
Pat, although I didn't know you that well as a friend, we did go to IV
together. Many of my friends were very close to you and I know you will be
missed. From all the stories I've heard about you, you had an amazing smile
that nobody will forget, and I wish I would have gotten the chance to see
that in person. I've also heard that you were an excellent student with
outstanding basketball and football potential. My sympathy goes out to you,
and all of your family and friends. You will be missed and remembered by
I will never forget the first time I saw Patrick on the basketball floor.
When Patrick was in 7th grade my daughter Shannon -who was also in 7th grade
and a cheerleader for the Indian Valley boys basketball team - asked me to
come watch a 7th grade basketball preseason scrimmage. Shannon had told me
that Patrick was one of the better players on the team so I was curious to
see Patrick play. What I quickly saw was that Patrick possessed exceptional
ball handling and passing skills and he was also blessed with remarkable
court presence. While Patrick was indeed an exceptional basketball talent,
what really stood out for me was his demeanor on the court. He quickly
showed that he was an unselfish type of individual who would rather make a
nice pass to a teammate then score a basket himself. He didn't need nor did
he seek any personal glory on the court. That trait personified who he was -
an unselfish individual who always put teammates ahead of himself. A rare
attribute for somebody that young with his basketball talent. Over the next
three years (7th, 8th, and 9th grade) I watched every game he played and
enjoyed submitting articles/photo's to the newpaper to document both
Patrick's and the team's many accomplishments on the court. It was a joy to
watch him evolve both as a player and an individual during that timeframe. I
will miss watching Greenon basketball games without Patrick on the court
over the next three years. Patrick will be missed but I also know that he
will always be remembered. Thanks for the memories Pat.
The loss of a child is the most difficult experience to endure. May you find
comfort in knowing that others care and share in your sorrow.
Patrick touched many lives and has presented wonderful memories to all who
knew and loved him.
Know that you will see Patrick again someday and he will welcome you all
with open arms.
Tere, Budg & Bobby Lauer
Jennifer and Family,
I am so very sorry for the loss of your precious son. You are in my thoughts
and prayers. Kandy Agee, PI Department, Greene Memorial Hospital
even though i hadn't seen patrick since i moved im very sorry. i remember so
many memories when we were younger. I know that the freshman class well
really miss his humour. I know i deff. did when i moved.
Miss you Pat
Life can really be hard sometimes. I have known Patrick since the second
grade. Even though we weren't the closest of friends it was still difficult
to walk the halls of Greenon without him. I wish with all my heart there was
something I could do to make this right but I guess there is only one thing
we can do and that is to pray.
They say that a teacher never forgets his first class.
They say that to teach is to touch students’ lives forever.
They say that students touch the lives of teachers also.
I do not know who they are, but they are correct. Pat was in my fifth grade
class at IV during my first year as a teacher. I cannot say enough about
Pat’s character, work ethic, and amazing personality. He had it all
together. Even though it was my first year as a teacher, I knew that Pat
would do great things with his life…I was right. Reading through these
postings confirms my belief that Pat touched numerous lives and perhaps the
greatest gift one human can give to another is to touch their life in a
meaningful and sincere way. Proverbs 17:17 states that a friend loves at all
times, and Pat was a friend to many…loving them at all times.
I dislike death and the sorrow that accompanies it. God hates death also…we
were not meant to experience it. God wanted us to live with Him forever. But
when sin entered the picture, everything changed.
Because of Jesus, God has given us the gift of knowing that hope is not
Because of Jesus, I know that I will see Pat again in heaven.
My heart goes out to Pat’s friends and family. You have been in my prayers
since I first received the news of the accident. Allow the hope that Pat is
in a beautiful place and that we will see him again to comfort you. They
also say that time heals all wounds. It is my prayer that your wounds will
heal over time but that you will never forget the young man that Pat was.
I am submitting three photos to this site because they represent the way I
will remember Pat.
His humor—when he dressed up as me for Halloween.
His character—he worked hard and helped others.
His peaceful nature—there is nothing more comforting than Pat’s smile.
You were a awesome kid who we will never forget Pat.
I didnt know your son, but I did watch him play football for Greenon and
basketball for IV. He was a very talented boy. My daughter Lacee did have
the pleasure of knowing him. I cant image the pain that your family is going
through at this time. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
patrick, you were a really good person.
we'll miss you.
I didn't know you as much as I wished I could, but when I met you in 5th
grade, I knew right then that you would be a great friend to have. You were
one of the nicest and funniest people I ever knew, and I thank you for that.
I remember at almost every greenon football game (in 8th grade) you and your
friends would always try and find me a girlfriend, thanks for trying =]! You
made my first year at I.V. the greatest! I will always remember you Pat, you
were like a brother to me!!! My thoughts and prayers are with you and your
Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your
memories bring you comfort.
So very sorry to hear of Patrick's accident. Just can not imagine what you
are going through now. In the past years we have enjoyed going to the
Fairborn Firehawks baseball games during the summer, watching the team play.
We always found Patrick to be very friendly and all around-good guy. We all
will miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. (Coach
Hutchinson's parents and Tyler's grandparents.)
My heart and prayers go to you and your family in these hard times. Over the
last 8 years being involved with your family on the football field was a joy
with memories no one can take away..
Coach Dan Luckenbill and family
It's really tragic that God took such a young soul. But I do not question
it. My thoughts and prayers are with the Jacobson family. I can not imagine
the pain or the torture you all are going through. May God Be With You <3
John and family,
I am incredibly saddened to hear about your son, Patrick. It seems like just
yesterday we were his age (or younger!) - growing up on Oneida Lake, going
to AA Cole and PV Moore. I am going to hug my kids extra hard tonight and we
will definitely keep you all in our prayers.
You were one of the most amazing friends that anyone could ask for. Greenon
just won't be the same without you going around just puttin a huge smile on
Football season was so much fun you always knew just what to say when I was
standing on the field bored out of my mind! I'm really going to miss you!
You and your family will ALWAYS be in my prayers!
i love you PJ!
ALWAYS loved and NEVER forgotten!
No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. My deepest
condolences are with you as you grieve.
My Dearest John, Jennifer, Zach & Little Jillian,
Patrick was loved so much. He was our second son, and a brother to Bronson
and April. Patrick and Bronson were two peas in a pod. I could watch the two
of them continously laugh as if it were yesterday. He could make us all
laugh. Patrick has a special place in the hearts of the Marlett family. He
will never be forgotten, and he will forever be cherished. Our thoughts and
prayers will be with you forever. Thank you for sharing your son with us.
Teresa, Dan, April and Bronson
Dear Jacobson Family,
My heart goes out to you in your loss. Everyone involved in this tragedy has
a special place in my thoughts and prayers.
You where an amazing athlete and a great person. I will always miss you, and
I promise to never forget you. I remember seeing you in the mornings at the
McMillin's house before school, when i was in 5th and 6th grade. You were
always really nice to me and you were always smiling. Can't wait to see you
Rest in peace pat.
I didnt know you that well, but the few times i did talk to you i will never
forget!You made me smile and laugh alot and from what i know you were a very
happy person!I will always remember being at rachael's house with you and
becky and CJ and a bunch of us sittin on the couch and you decided it was
your spot and we werent supposed to be sittin there and you came over and
layed down on top of us and the manner that u did it in was pretty
hilarious!!I can't believe i just saw you on monday.You will always have a
place in my heart!<3!!And i know many will miss you Greatly!!
Pat, you were an amazing person in general and espescially at basketball. As
soon as I told my family what happened they said "is that the freshman that
played on the varsity team and was so good at three pointers?" you had so
much going for you and I know we didn't really talk that much this year but
I am so sad to see that future shortened like it's been. your smiling face
and jokes(making fun of me usually :]) will make going to school less fun
without you. We all love you, miss you and will NEVER forget you.
Only the good die young <3 you
May your love and memories of your son's life give you the strength you need
in your time of grief.
Our deepest sympathy to all.
Patrick, I didn't talk to you that often, but whenever I did it made me
laugh. You were an awesome person and it's so sad to see you go. We'll miss
Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you during this tragedy.
Jennifer, Christopher, Kyle and Kody Phelps and Jim and Dianne Hendrickson
I didn't know your son but as a mother to teenagers my sincerest sympathies
to your family. From the many entries it sounds like your son touched many
lives and made an impact on a lot of people. Although his time here was
short he made a difference to many. So glad you were blessed to have him for
15 years. You're in my prayers.
My heart goes out to your family at this time of loss. Pat was a terrific
student,a positive infulence and role model to those around him. His input
on the lives of others will not be forgotten.
I am so sorry for your tragic loss. It's hard to find words to comfort you
but please know we are praying for God to give you strength and comfort to
get through this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
The Vieu Family
I didn't know your son, but my daughter attended school with him and I want
you to know your family is in my prayers.
I did not know your son personally, but I have read every word in this
guestbook and thought to myself as tears rolled down my face how very proud
you must be that your son touched so many lives here in the Enon community.
What an impact he had on the teachers, the coaches, the students, the
siblings of these students, the teams, and the list goes on and on. I know
your son will be deeply missed by many and so many people are hurting right
now. I pray that you will find peace in the days that lie ahead. Our family
will be praying for all of you. God will help you during this time of
John, Jennifer & family
We just don't know what to say or do but hope that you know the Firehawks
family is here for all you. We will all miss Pat sorely and how will the
Firehawks go on without him! He was such on a joy on the field and in the
dugout. I'll never forget watching him walking across the street with his
bag on his shoulder and a big smile on his face to come to practice or the
game. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in the sad time!
John, Jennifer and Family, we are so sorry for your loss. It will not be the
same without Pat. He was such a talented athlete and a great kid, a little
aunrey but that is what made him so special. Ben was a friend of Patricks
and enjoyed playing with him in basketball. If you need anything, please do
not hesitate to call. Our prayers are with you. Jake, Ben and Dylan
Swinford. Benita and Keith Adrian
Dear Jacobson Family,
Words cannot express my sorrow at the loss of Pat. I had Pat in my 7th grade
social studies class with Dylan and Nick. I looked forward each day to
seeing these three together...they made my laugh so much. Just as everyone
else has said, Pat had a smile that could light up a room and one that
instantly brought a smile to all of those around him. I am truly thankful
for the time that I got to spend with Pat. He will be greatly missed.
TO THE JACOBSON FAMILY:
Our thoughts and prayers are with you through this terribly difficult time.
No one can understand the grief you are going through. We are here for you
if you need us.
YOUR NEIGHGBORS - WEST HUNTER DRIVE
Theres alot to say about this kid, he was definatly friendly. I only talked
to him a few times but from what I've heard he was pretty amazing. I went to
school with him practically all of my life, never really talking to him, but
he was still there. If he was in a room, the room was happy. I know he'll be
missed, by everyone. Even people, like me, who didnt really know him and
wont get the chance to.
John, Jennifer and Family
May you find comfort in your memories of your son, Patrick, and peace in
your faith! May you also feel the loving touch of all those who care...Our
Sympathy to All of You at this Very Sad Time! Love from our Family, June and
Pat im so sorry to hear what happened.You were awesome though you would
brighten up anyones day with your jokes you were the best and all my prayers
go out to you.
What a great kid, watching you grow up in Little League and Dayton Metro was
such a delight. Your smile was exuberating. The time I picked Devin up at
your house and you were not smiling I knew something was wrong. Devin and
Ryan had a look of distress on their faces. Then you smiled and Wow your
front tooth was half gone, never really found out who swung the hockey stick
that busted it. You thought it was so cool!
You will be sadly missed and never ever forgotton.
John and Jennifer:
You will always be in our thoughts and prayers. You are wonderful parents
and that showed through Pat
I didn't know Patrick, but my 16 year old son Kevin did, and has been deeply
touched by this accident. As a mother of a teenage son, my heart is breaking
for your family. It's hard to understand why things like this happen. I do
know that our God is a loving God who truly knows your pain and will carry
you through. Patrick is in good hands, and will welcome you all home with
that wonderful smile. Our prayers are with you. God bless each of you during
this difficult time.

17 yrs old, was killed 7 yrs ago in a car accident and like your Pat he was
a people person. My prayers and thoughts are with during this very difficult
time. Your son will always be remembered and missed not only by his family
but by the many people that he touched during his very special time here on
I loved having Patrick in my 3rd grade class. He was one of those kids you
just never forget. Pat had it all - he was so intelligent, witty, and a true
friend to everyone. And then there was that smile...wow! He and his buddy
Nick put a smile on my face everyday. I have always considered Patrick one
of my all time favorite students - and he knew that too!! I feel so blessed
to have known him. My heart aches for your family. You are in my prayers.
My heart and prayers go out to Pat's family (as well as to Austin and CJ).
Pat was an amazing young man. My first memory of him was from 5th grade
band. He informed me that a girl in 8th grade had a crush on him and it was
because "I got mojo, Mrs. Zartman". Pat was a great student, a wonderful
friend, and an awesome spirit. It's clear to see how much his love of life
impacted everyone around him. He will be greatly missed.
Thoughts and Prayers from Syracuse, NY
You and your family are in my prayers.

of love for Pat and that will never change. If there is anything we can do
for you, please call. Love~ Amy (Anderson) Retherford

We are all going to miss you on that football field, as well as all the
other places we have seen your smiling face. You have touched the lives of
many people in your short time here and your spirit will live on through
them. May God Bless and watch over all those left behind who will miss you

Our hearts are saddened by the loss of your wonderful son Patrick. Your
family is in the prayers and thoughts of all your neighbors. As the parents
of Greenon students we are all your neigbors. I respectfully leave this
passage with you in hopes that it may bring you some peace....
Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to
the Father except through me. John 14:6.
Please accept our heartfelt sympathy in the sudden loss of your son,
grandson, brother & friend.
I didnt know you, but i knew some of your friends, Gaby and Nick. They say
you were great, and i believe them. May God be with you and your family.
Patrick...you were my buddy! we had all our classes together, played the
same sports, had all the same friends but there's one thing about you that
made you different from me-your ability to make everyone's life a joy and to
make them want more in life than to just come and go. you made me want to
LIVE. i miss you so so much and nobody will understand the way i feel about
this. I just wish you could come back for 2 more minutes and i could give
you a BIG hug! and you could make fun of me one last time...:) ha those were
the good ol days. I'm trying to look at all the memories we had together and
tell other people about them to cheer them up. I know you're watchiing over
me and i just want you to know that i love you buddy and nobody will EVER
take your spot in my heart...¢¾
Rest in peace Pat, I wish I could've done more.We'll never forget you
It is always sad when a young life is taken before it's time. God bless the
family and friends of this young man, and watch over them in their time of
mourning. My prayers are with you all.
pat (PJ) you were an amazing athlete i have been wanting a chance to play
football with you but as a 7th grader i never got a chance and now i guess
ill have to wait but i am sure when i make it up to you it will be one fun
game when i was in fourth grade god took my friend chriss miller during a
basketball game and they said he stopped in the middle of the court and his
body was lifted up and set down gently. then in 5th grade he took my dads
former player Jason collier and now you are gone and there has to be one
heck of a basketball game goin on up there it is hard to believe i saw you
in the hallway at I.V. monday talking to you and Quinn you will be missed
and every one will have a place in there hearts forever we love you man
Rest in Peace Patrick Jacobson
Its sad that pat is gone its almost like a nightmare but well, i dont know.
ill miss him alot he brought alot of personality to Greenon and its not
going to be the same without him, well never forget him.
hah best memoryy was the first time i met him me and my sister was lookin at
video games in walmart and he walked past us and right as he did the guy(im
asuming his dad) said you got your white-tighies and he was just like god
shut up it made me laugh:D
then i relized him at school and ha we've talked since then:D
I was so very saddened to hear the news. What I remembered first was his
smile. It could light up a room. He had such a great sense of humor which I
found contagious. I am thankful I had the pleasure of having Patrick in
class. He will be deeply missed. My deepest sympathy to his family. My
thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
About Pat...we didn't get to know each other too well but we did in fact
know each other! He was so much fun to be around. As long as he was in the
room, everyone always had a smile on their face! It was great. So many
"little" memories are with me, and will remain for ever! I miss him so much
already. It's like I've known him my whole life. He was so young, and had so
much potential. A positve role model and a wonderful leader. However I know
this, our God is a jealous one! He must want that kind of behavior in
Heaven! God wants the best of the best. And they say only the good die
young. I think this goes to prove it! R.I.P Pat, see you in heaven buddy.
Pat. you will always be remember we love you soo much. you were an amazing
only the good die young.
pat was a great kid. a friend to many.
a successful athlete. a respected student.
it doesn't seem fair, or even possible, that such a wonderful person could
have something so horrible happen to them.
pat - your spirit and good nature will live on through your family and
friends. you will not be forgotten, and that wonderful smile of yours will
continue to shine!
Its a shame our paths never really crossed, but I know enough about you to
say with utter confidence that if there really is a better place, you're in
We knew Pat as a good friend to our son. We enjoyed watching him play
basketball and were awed by the talent of this young man. He was fearless
and always gave his all to the game with a smile on his face. He seemed like
he really enjoyed life. He will be sorely missed by all his teammates and
friends at Greenon. Our hearts are breaking for his family and they will be
in our prayers in the days ahead.
John, Jennifer and family,
Our deepest sympathy for the loss of your precious child. May all of your
wonderful memories of Patrick give you comfort and strength at this
difficult time. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
You are a amazing kid! I Know you are watching us all right now!..everyone
is trying to hold up strong! I well never forget your smile! You always wore
one from ear to ear! You were the best at making someones day better! We all
miss you! Forever in our hearts!
Patrick- I didnt know you as well as i would have liked, and i wish i did.
Its so weird to think that your gone, and it hasnt really sunk in yet. You
were always the nicest guy ever and everyone will miss you so much. Whenever
I did see you though you were always smiling and you seemed like such an
amazing person. I wish you were still here, You'll be remembered forever.
Today at school was probably the most quiet place in the world, as well as
tonight at the vigil. everyone misses you already... RIP. <3
We didn't really talk that much but we were on the same football team and I
liked to think of us as friends. I think that you would be glad to know that
there are so many people thinking of you and you will always stay in our
hearts forever. You were a great friend and a great athlete. I know that
none of us will forget you anytime soon. There is always an open spot in all
of our hearts now that you are gone, but that gap will be filled with all of
the good times and the even better memories.
Its hard to take. I got to know you for the short time we were together and
you became a true friend.....
Never Forgotten, Forever A Memory
Pat. you were a amazing friend. you had such a bright future.. you were so
smart and so athletic. you are in all of our hearts and you always will be.
you won't be forgotten. love you man!
Pat, I always saw you walking down the hallway with the big smile on your
face that everyone talks about. You have so many people that love and care
about you and will never forget you. I pray that you rest in peace. We'll
all miss you.
R.I.P Pat you were one of the most happy people i have ever seen always
having a good time and being a good friend. You were a great athlete and had
a bright future ahead of you. Everyone misses you a lot.
Rest In Peace Pat
Pat, I will miss you man. The time we had playing basketball and playing
i will miss you man and i love you
I just have to say my afternoon will never be the same....we all miss you
and will never forget you....Greenon will never be the same but you are
in a better place now and I'm sure that you are ok and looking down on us
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Hey man, though i didn't know you too well, we had some good times together
in sports. I had a lot of fun with you. Just want you to know that you will
be missed. Just wish I could have been a better friend. I'll miss you man.
Pat, I didn't get the chance to actually talk to you, but I saw you
everywhere. You were an amazing person. It's sad that you had to leave us,
but I guess it was your time.
You are in our thoughts and prayers. We can't imagine that there are many
words to comfort you right now, we didn't know Patrick personally even
though our daughter attended school with him at I.V. her words to us were
that she wishes she would have known him better because he was an incredible
person that everyone liked, and his smile always brightened a room. It's a
wonderful gift to touch people and because of your son so many were blessed.
Condolences, Lukjanovs Family
You were a great friend and a great teammate. Every one will miss you.
Football it will never be the same without you
I love you man
Pat, little cousin, I haven't seen you in so many years but from what i hear
you turned out to be exactly what I expected. I still picture you as the
funny guy who always had something to say and cheer people up. You will be
My heart goes out to the family of Pat, I never knew him but from what I
hear he was a great friend to everyone and a wonderful athlete with a
promising future. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of
The Brannon Family
Pat, when you came through the line at the football dinners you were always
so friendly and thanked us for food. My son Travis Richardson is devastated
by losing you and have never seen him this upset. He can't believe he was
just with you in art class yesterday and you were gone so quickly. We are
praying for your family.
I didnt know Pat but I knew people who knew him. Your passing has affected
lives at Fairborn High School I know that. You will truly be missed. My
sincere sympathy goes out to the family and friends. Always remember you
have an angel watching over you.
R.I.P. Patrick Jacobson
Mark says you are a great kid with a big heart - a friend to many with so
much potential. I'm so sorry to your family for their loss. I hope you fly
on angels wings and had no pain. Our thoughts are with your family, your
parents, your friends. You will be missed by so many for so long. God Bless.
You were such an amazing guy. A great athlete, a great student , a great
friend, and just an all around good guy. We had some pretty good times
together that I will cherish forever. You will always be remembered in all
of our hearts and we will never let you go. I love you and will miss you
forever man. Rest In Peace *PJ*
Pat was a promising athlete at Greenon and was a joy for a coaching staff to
have on their team. More importantly, he was just a fine young man and will
be sorely missed by all who knew him. Our thoughts and heartfelt prayers go
out to his family and all of his friends who are suffering right now and in
the days and weeks ahead.
Pat was always the happiest and funniest person I've ever met. He had this
entrancing smile that will never be forgotten. It was extremely contagious,
and if he was smiling (which he always was), there was no possible way for
you to hold back your own smile. Pat loved life and everything in it and
that's a really hard thing to do. Somehow he pulled it off though...somehow
he pulled everything off. From athletics to academics, he could do it all!
One of my favorite memories of Pat was in 6th grade, when we had to stay
inside for recess and we had IV Idol. Pat was in a group of boys and they
sang Stacey's Mom. Pat sounded awesome and at the same time was hilarious
because he had all of these great dance moves! I don't quite know how to
deal with losing him, but I do know one thing is for sure, I am going to try
and live the rest of my life like Patrick Jacobson did...with a big smile on
my face and in my heart. It's how I think he would have wanted it done. I
know he is just waiting to see us all again in Heaven some day. I will keep
Pat and his family and friends in my heart and in my prayers!
I know you are smiling down from heaven right now and I just can't wait to
see you face to face again.
I Love you Pat! ; )

ross always goofing around and mrs haddix sending u to the back of the

Patrick, it was great to get to know you. Your were always a person that was
smilling and let other people feel good. I will always keep you in my
We didn't really know each other. But you a friend of my sister's, and one
of my cousin's best friends. Which makes you a friend of mine. You were a
great kid and we will miss you. It's hard to realize that life can be so
short. God always has a plan, and even though it's hard and hurts like
crazy, He is still in control. And He is always by our sides to offer love
and comfort. My prayers are with you, your family and your friends.
I'll miss you.
I can't even put it in words how much i'm gonna miss you.
I'll be praying for the family and friends.
Pat I didn't know you personally that well. From what I know you are a great
person and friend. You will be greatly missed at are school. I'm praying for
the family. Your in a better place now. I'll miss seeing you around school
and sometimes in seventh period. :)
REST IN PEACE PAT!
No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. My deepest
condolences are with you as you grieve.

pat you were one of my best friends and always will be even though you are
not here anymore...it will never be the same and noone can ever take your
place.football this year is going to be hard on the whole team but we are
gonna get through, and we will do it for you...love ya man
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
This came as a shock when Lindsay told me about the accident. I have not
seen you in awhile and you probably would not recognize me on the street
right away. I remember our Bible lessons at St. Paul's in Yellow Springs and
what a great smile you had. I don't really know what else to say, but I just
hope you're happy wherever you are.
Patrick was a great quarterback with a promising career. He was a great kid
to be around, with a wonderful personality. I enjoyed coaching him and
looked forward to watching him grow and lead Greenon in the coming years. My
prayers go out to his family and to his friends. This is truly a loss that
is felt by many.
Even though I never got the chance to know Patrick I always enjoyed watching
him play at the basketball games. He was a very talented athlete and you
never saw him without a smile. I wish I would haev gotten the chance to know
him. I'll keep Pat's family and friends in my prayers. RIP Patrick.
Our heartfelt condolences and prayers go out to Patrick's family and host of
others who are suffering this untimely and tearful loss. Truly a wonderful
young man, who always had a smile to share and a fastball to fool you with.
We will forever cherish our times with Patrick, both on and off the field.
I can't imagine snapping the ball and you not there to receive it. I am so
glad we were friends and I am going to miss you. My little sister Madison
went to school today and asked her teacher to pray for Jillian. She
remembers playing with her at the JV and Freshman games.
I never met Pat but my daughters attended school with him. Our thoughts and
prayers go out to his family at this time of loss.
I didnt know you personally. But we did talk every once in a while. You were
always really nice. You seemed to be a great guy with a big heart. Your in a
better place. We miss you down here though! RIP PJ!
I love you Pat!!! We will always miss you! I will always remember that
pat was the nicest sweetest guy ever.Friends with anybody and everybody.He
mad you laugh at the hardest times.And would be there for you in a
heartbeat.He is going to be greatly missed and never forgotten.we are all
filled with sadness,and will for a long time,Pat we love you and miss
you.Rest in peace,and watch for us till we see you again.
Pat was an awesome friend.
Im noy sure what im going to do without seeing his smiling face in the
halls. We had some great times back in the 5th grade when i met him and
those memories will ALWAYS be with me and the family. I will always love and
miss Pat as a friend and part of the football team family. Rest In Peace
Your such an amazing person.
i will never forget you. Its too bad that god had to call you up. But it
happens to the best of us right?
Well i still can't belive the last thing you said to me was "i love you
shannon, your my bestfriend" that really made me happy. i miss you ssooo
much already and things just WILL NOT be the same with out. You are so
young. but i guess only the good die young. :)
RIP- Patrick "P-jay" Jacobson.
I love you. Forever & Always.
Hey there Pat. You probably don't remember me, but I remember you. We were
in the same art class. We never talked but I always thought you had the
prettiest smile and this amazing knack for making other people do the same.
Wish we'd have met. We all miss you in different ways, but for similar
reasons. Good luck, and rest in peace man.
You were a great kid with a promising future and you will be missed. I
didn't know you that well but from being in our homecoming group you were a
cool kid. I still am amazed you got Amanda Clevinger to fast dance with you
because she never fast dances. Pat, wherever your at I hope your at peace. I
will be praying for you.
I deeply regret not getting the chance to have known Patrick personally. He
was such a sweet boy and had so much talent. He will be dearly missed and
We will miss you very much as we already do. I always looked forward to
seeing your smiling face. It was hard to be in a bad around you. It is so
hard to believe you are gone. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to
coach and get to know such a great young man. It was a pleasure. I think I
can speak for the Firehawks team and say that you will be so sadly missed by
everyone that knew you. It is like losing a member of the family. Good-Bye.
My deepest and most heartfelt sympathies are with you all.
I don't know of anyone Alexa liked more as a friend than Patrick. Alexa will
have a huge void in her life. Patrick was such a happy person who brought
such happiness and laughter to so many others. I am so sorry that the family
is having to go thru this tragedy. Zach has always been very dear to our
family as has Patrick. I am sure Patrick is in heaven looking down and
feeling so good about all the love so many peope feel for him. You are in
our thoughts and prayers.
Such a sad time. We were fortunate to have known Patrick. I will always
remember Patrick's big smile. Our deepest sympathy to you and yours.
We're all going to miss you Pat. We weren't really close at all but you were
still a great person, athlete, and student. I'm very sorry this had to
happen to you.
Rest In Peace.
I can't belive your gone. I will miss you. I don't know what we are gonna do
on the Firehawks with out you. R.I.P Pat
YOU ARE IN OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS. FROM THE DOCTORS AND STAFF OF PEDIATRIC
ASSOC. OF BEAVERDREEK
Pat, you were a great person who will be strongly missed. Zach was so
thankful that he got to play basketball with you and you guys spent alot of
good times together. Our prayers go out to the family.
you were a good friend & athlete..i cant believe your gone!!! R.i.P. Patrick
I didnt know Pat personally. I coached some girls who did, though, and
always loved hearing the stories about him. I was friends with Zach through
high school and would hear him talk about how good of an athlete Pat was.
You could just tell how proud he was. Things like this make no sense at all
and we often keep asking the question why...only to never receive an answer.
May God give you all the strength to get through this horribly difficult
time. This is something no parent, brother, sister, etc should ever have to
experience. My thoughts and prayers will be with you all in your time of
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
My condolences go out to the family. I cannot even pretend to imagine the
sorrow you are feeling. Patrick was a good friend to our son, Tyler, and we
will keep you all in prayer.
You were a great friend, athlete and person. We were blessed with the time
we spent with you even if it seems like it wasn't very long. You will be in
our hearts forever.
Love Nick, Gaby and Hector Cruz.
Thanks for being a great friend to Alexa.
