Eulogy for my big sister, Jessica
XXVIII.) Jessica Beck Jacobs 12/20/1976 - 10/08/2020 <28th OP>
My sister Jessica Jacobs passed away on Thursday October 8th 2020. She was sick for some time, but it still came as a surprise to me that she is already deceased at the age of forty-three. A good friend and mentor of mine gave me some great advice. He told me to write a eulogy that truly honors my sister, and leaves behind a legacy that we would all be proud of. While I'm a little embarrassed to share this with the world, I do have a number of family and friends that were unable to attend the memorial service for Jessica due to COVID and other extenuating circumstances. So, while I honor their request in sharing the eulogy I wrote for my sister, I also invite you to read and take comfort in what I wrote and what I shared on the day of Jessica’s memorial service.
The eulogy is lightly edited, but largely intact from the day I shared it.
